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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.6/100, a mean average of 78.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

If you don't feel the groove then you are, in fact, grooveless.

Not sure why our track listing was missing side e & f before... not songs to be missed.

Probably one of the only exceptions I have for listening to artist compilations. Everything here is just so nicely wrapped up and smooth.

RIP William Onyeabor.

Hidden gem... Would never have heard of this guy if I didn't start listening to Fela Kuti. I don't care that this is a comp - great funky sound throughout.

If you've got a turntable, it's well worth treating yourself to the vinyl version of this. If not you'll miss out on "When The Going Is Smooth and Good", which if you ask me is the best thing the great man ever did.
