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 7% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.3/100, a mean average of 77.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

THE SHEEP SHALL TURN INTO A LION
Ras Michael aka Dadawah has a big heart. He feels, like few others, the suffering of the repressed. He's a true empath. And his mourning and sadness and empathy for all the repressed people of the world lives in his voice and and in his songs. But, these songs are far from sad. They're triumphant. For this is a deeply religious and spiritual album. One that essentially echoes Jesus in that the meek and oppressed will eventually rise above and inherit the Earth. For Nas (his religion’s name for God) is on their side. That with perseverance and faith, the multitude will overcome their oppression. That the walls of hatred and fear and ignorance will tumble before their triumphant and joyful love. For love is the answer. No matter what the question. No matter how you’ve been wronged. And through this love for Nas and for yourself, the sheep can and will turn into the lion. And then and only then will you truly be free.
Grade: A+. This is my favorite reggae album. I’m no Jimmy Dread. I’m no expert. Going to college with a bunch of prep school boys who literally force fed me Bob Marly’s Legend a zillion times (there was seriously no escaping it. It echoed through the freshman dorms like some kind of zombified monster) stifled my reggae growth good and proper back in my late teens. But, I’m now a late bloomer and, with the help of Jimmy, I’m beginning to see the light. I believe it was actually Hayden who turned me onto this particular record though way back when. And she’s a keeper. This is the album I play when I need to rise above.
For this is one of the most spiritually uplifting albums I’ve ever heard. The purity of Dadawah’s faith and vision comes bellowing out of the speakers and literally has the power to lift you up, take you out of your small, self-absorbed world and connect you to something far bigger than yourself - the global human struggle. It enables you to shake off the paralysis of self pity and realize that suffering is not a unique experience. That it is universal. And that most importantly, you can do something about it. You can sing. You can drum. You can believe. In Nas. In yourself. And thereby rise above and walk with the lions. And this powerful album roars itself all the way to number 3.
T'aint my cup of tea, really. Yabby's version of Run Come Rally trumps the far-too-lengthy version here. Personally find the whole thing a bit of a bore - it's like dull prog reggae. Nyahbinghi, Ras Michael's album before this is far, far better. And Promised Land Sounds completely blows this out the water.
