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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.7.

This album suffers the same problem as "Music Of My Mind", its inconsistency. The first 5 songs are ordinary, the last 5 are really great. I really like "They Won't Go When I Go", this is Stevie at his best. In fact, the whole second side of the album is great and if he could have kept the pace for the entire album, it would be ranked a lot higher. But unfortunately, songs like "Too Shy To Say" and "Creepin'" make me lower my rate. Still a good album by a great mind though.

This feels like the hidden gem in Stevie Wonders catalogue I have always loved this album and would rate it higher than Talking Book but below Innervisions, Music Of My Mind & Songs In The Key Of Life. It is the 4th Wonder album in my top 100 he is a genius. This album has a great mix of styles which he would further expand on in Key Of Life. Side 2 for me (6-10) was always slightly stronger than Side 1, I love the closing 3 tracks along with "You Haven't Done Nuthin" & "Boogie On Reggae Woman", Ceeepin' & It Ain't No Use are also 90/100

Fulfillingness first finale, always seems to be the forgotten album in that stunning run of LP's in the early/mid seventies, and in truth, it's not quite as brilliant as those other records. Still, it's a good album featuring some classic songs, including the funky Richard Nixon rant, you ain't done nothin', heaven is 10 zillion light years away, and, boogie on reggae woman. Another good record, at this time Stevie Wonder was unstoppable.

I would consider this album to be very underrated. A deserving Grammy winner for album of the year not in the top 1500? Not in the top 20 for 1974?

Overall it is a very good album. Not my favorite from Stevie, but very nice work nonetheless. Some fantastic instrumentation and vocal performances on here. They Won't Go When I Go is a hidden gem in Stevie's catalog.

The fourth installment in Wonder's amazing run of '70s LPs that would climax with Songs in the Key of Life. Anchored by the hits "Boogie On Reggae Woman" and "You Haven't Done Nothin'," Fulfillingness' First Finale is defined by Wonder's warm, expressive vocals and immaculate production.

Stevie gets a little more earthy on this one. The beast and melodies seem to come from his gut, rather than his head or his heart. I like it.

Wonderfully understated album. Stevie's soul permeates throughout the album, especially "they won't go when i go".
