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 84.4/100, a mean average of 82.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

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.

Reggae for the rock crowd. Mixed for the rock n pop audience. And it certainly worked didn't it. Full of brilliant songs. When I bought this back in the day it sounded fuck all like the Dub n reggae i'd hear Mr Peel play and I expected something a bit more authentic. So what. I found all that shit out eventually. This is just classic shit for the masses. Gateway reggae or just an essential best of to sit next to the other pop icons that Joe bloggs loves that are still actually nice.

Legend is the very essence of Bob Marley's music, and perhaps the single best record to be the soundtrack for a summer evening barbecue.

Possibly the greatest and most near-perfect collection of songs on a single record. But it is a compilation, so it's cheating a tad.
