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 85.6/100, a mean average of 84.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

A great album. The A-side is stronger than the B-side, but still very listenable. 9.5/10!

I will never tire of this absolute masterpiece. The song Don't You Worry About a Thing is a tremendous vocal exercise, Living for the City is a bold conscious effort, Golden Lady and All is Fair in Love and the title track are simply sublime, and Jesus Children and Higher Ground are such funky fun.

Essential

Condensed to a 7" Single:
A-Side: Higher Ground
B-Side; Don't You Worry Bout a Thing

This is one of Stevie Wonder's most consistently great records. Every song shows a brilliant side to Stevie Wonder with the peak of the record coming on the 7 minute epic that is Living For The City. A lot of the other songs come close to this one in terms of quality but this is definitely the stand out track that is undeniably the best on here. You get to experience everything that is great about Stevie Wonder on this song with some fantastic song writing, complex music and a beautiful vocal display. Every time I revisit this album I am blown away by this track all over again as it truly demonstrates how much of a genius musician Stevie Wonder is. Overall, this is probably his most consistent release with every song feeling significant and being filled with that classic charm, character and quality we expect from one of the greatest artists of all time.

One of the greatest albums of all time bar none. Carrying the tradition paved by himself (the previous year's 'Music of My Mind') and Marvin Gaye ('What's Going On') to writing more than just standard love songs for the Motown machine, Wonder unleashes a collection of songs dealing with drug abuse ('Too High'), spirituality ('Higher Ground'), critique of organized religion ('Jesus Children of America'), a calm but harsh Nixon rebuke ('He's Misstra-Know-It-All'), and the centerpiece of the record, the towering 7 minute epic 'Living for the City', painting a vivid picture of economic hardship, racism, and struggle in the cold, brutal city. Even the love songs (the Latin tinged 'Golden Lady' and 'Don't You Worry Bout a Thing') on this record are stellar and a big cut above the rest of pop music at the time. Eagerly awaiting the moment this recieves the 'Revolver/Sgt Peppers' or 'Off the Wall/Thriller' reevaluation as Wonder's best record over (the admittedly just as stellar) 'Songs in the Key of Life'.

Essential picks: Too High, Visions, Living For the City, Golden Lady, Higher Ground, Don't You Worry Bout a Thing, He's Misstra-Know-It-All

Can I just add another comment? Cheers. I'm absolutely obsessed with this record. I think it may be the best record of all time. I have it twice on vinyl record and both have jumps at start of higher ground. There you go. Cheers.
