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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

Feels more like a greatest hits album rather than a studio one. Fun and innovative, and "Everyday People" sounds as urgent today as it did 50 years ago.

Funk e psicodelia pura. Super dançante.

There are hints of the great work Sly would do but it's very unbalanced and the compositions lack some spice. Sometimes the melodies or changes sound a bit childish. The overall hippie vibe doesn't satisfy me also.
But great drummer and bass player.

I love Sly And The Family Stone, but this album simply doesn´t have a good pacing. Sex Machine and Don´t Call Me Nigger suck the energy of the album.

An absolutely brilliant record. Psychedelic soul, all fantastic. Stand!, is without doubt a total classic. Everyday people, stand, I want to take you higher, you can make it if you try, all great tracks, and then you have, don't call me nigger, Whitey, and the rock workout of the epic, sex machine. A genius record.

Amazing Sly and the Family Stone Album... only weaker songs on it are Somebody Watching You and Sex Machine... other than that, amazing album. Really should be ranked higher in 1969.
