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 84.9/100, a mean average of 83.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

Great groovy, funky album with awesome lyrics almost all the time. My favorites are: Village Ghetto Land, Sir Duke, I Wish, Pastime Paradise, Ordinary Pain, Isn't She Lovely, As and Another Star.

This site overrates white artists and underrates Black artists and this album being outside the top 100 illustrates that.

The musicianship is basically flawless. It’s jazz chops married to pop sensibility.

There were a couple of songs (Summer Soft, Joy Inside My Tears) that give a first impression of being slow and sappy. Even they find a killer groove before long. Also, there’s a sense of optimism tucked into this album, despite several of the songs reporting on the pain and broken nature of this world.

For me, the album’s a bit too long. I Am Singing and If It’s Magic could be chopped to make this a crisper album.

Sin ser el tipo de música que más me gusta, hay que reconocer que suena muy bien y es un grandísimo disco, con muy buenos singles que ya son clásicos.
La única pega que pongo es que es demasiado largo.

I gave this a listen in 2020 after enjoying his Innervision album. Wonder has always been on my periphery - enjoying his singles throughout the years but never enough to get an album. But when I heard this I discovered that I had heard many of the songs but never always knew they were Wonder nor that they were all from this one majestic album. Too many great songs to list out. If you haven't heard this album yet and have any form of soul in you then get it.

Great double LP. Wonder reaches just beyond his grasp to fill out all 4 sides.
