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 mean average rating of 84.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

I was very intimidated by the length of this album, but it's fantastic. Stevie Wonder is a legend.

I know some others have said it already, but this really is one of the few double albums that deserve to be a double album. There is not one filler track, and it covers so many styles yet remains one cohesive unit. It works better than even some progressive rock concept albums that are deliberately trying to retain a thematic element yet they don't get as much success out of it as much as Stevie Wonder just being himself. An additional EP of 4 songs was released afterward with most recent versions of the album including these songs, and they are just as amazing, and easily could have been added on to make it an official triple album from the beginning and I don't think anyone would have minded. When you listen to this album, you listen to a majority of popular music from the 70's and even today. It's a wonderful introduction album to Stevie, as well as an introduction album to good music in general. Frankly it should be in the top 100 on this website at the very least!

One of the few double albums that I believe warrants it's length. Not a bad song on this album.

Stevie Wonder condensed the 20th century's popular music (including a significant amount of foresight into what would come along over the course of the following 24 years) into two hours, and did so masterfully. His best album.

The first disc is simply perfect. The second one is great, but I could have done with a few tracks less. But all in all, this album is crazy good and my favorite Stevie Wonder album. The work of a true genius. It covers multiple genres and it does well in everyting. A must listen!
