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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.3/100, a mean average of 76.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

Overall this is a good album a surprise at the time as it was the follow up to Purple Rain. The title track, Paisley Park, Pop Life, America & Raspberry Beret are all good Prince songs. Condition Of The Heart is also good but the remaining tracks are not as worthy. Not his best but definitely not the worst he's produced.
Brave change of direction after Purple Rain. It's one of my favourite Prince albums and his most under rated
Uma boa e talentosa viajada psicodélica!

Prince unleashes his psychedelic side here with a luscious musical palette and abstruse lyrical content. The album sees turns of style from energetic performances to tender ballads and delivers both with equal intent. A true high point of the 80s which has stood the test of time admirably.
Best Track: Pop Life
Around the World in a Day is Prince's most psychedelic release. The singles are fantastic and the rest of the album does not disappoint.
The Grand and Sublim Follow-Up to the Masterpiece "Purple Rain".
His weakest from the '80s I'd say. Really doesn't stick with me.
Yes, it's no "Purple Rain", but this follow-up record from Prince & The Revolution should not be easily discarded. Prince goes psychedelic and it works ! "Around the World in a Day" is a solid record where every single track is either a good or a great one. I have a handful of favourites from this one: "Paisley Park", "America" (political subtext handled really well by Prince here), "Raspberry Beret" of course, although the best one here is "The Ladder" which fully embraces the existential. A very good album, bordering on greatness.
This was Prince's best album when it came out in my opinion. I feel this is when he started to do what he really wanted. It is super weird, which is good.
