Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 82.1/100, a mean average of 81.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

This is one of those great albums that have an aura, and only get better and better with time.

This may be Paul's best post Beatles album, and it is absolutely brimming with ideas. It may be too cute for some, but there is not a weak track here. My favourites are Dear Boy, Too Many People and Back Seat of my Car.

McCartney's finest solo record. It is focused beyond belief paying close attention to showing each part of McCartney's varied styles of writing. It is goofy and fun but still manages to be poignant and reflective. An underrated gem.

Paul also created indie rock, the best living genius

I am not big fan of his solo stuff, but that was fine listen with some highlights.

Aunque no me parece el mejor disco de McCartney, debo reconocer que me gusta más con el paso del tiempo. Eso sí, creo que Uncle Albert en un intento fallido de hacer lo que posteriormente lograría con Live And Let Die o Band On The Run.

Along with Band on the Run, Paul's finest solo outing. Actually, I think it's slightly better than the 1973 album. Macca is at his best here, creating the sort of effortless pop music that he churned out with The Beatles. Some daft lyrics, but I don't go to McCartney for lyrics, but melody and musicianship. Ram delivers in spades, and is a joy from front to back.

Paul's best solo album. "Dear Boy," "Backseat," "Too Many People," "Uncle Albert," and "Heart of the Country" are among his greatest compositions. I actually like the Linda singing. It's part of the album's charm. It works.
