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 84.2/100, a mean average of 82.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

The first four songs are great, but it gets reeeeeeeeeally monotonous real quick. Every song might be great on it's own, but one right after the other is tiring.

This is a compilation, so it is hard to rate it the same way as other albums. Anyway, this is an excellent starting point if you are unfamiliar with this music genre and then you can decide if you want to go deeper (in my case I didn't).

Certainly best-in-class as far as compilations go, but it misses the intensity of the mid-70s Island albums.

My only issue with this album is people act like this is the only Bob Marley album in existence, or it's the only one they need.

It’s not in chronological order as I prefer and not all of these would make my top playlist but it’s a great compilation as previously commented. If you love it I would recommend listening to all his albums starting with Catch A Fire. This great compilation is far from the whole story.

I'm not a fan of reggae music, but for me this is reggae's greatest hits, essential album.
