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 13% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.3/100, a mean average of 75.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.3.

I love that they put much more sadness in this one. The social commentary (that's already evident from the cover) lands that much harder this way.

Not on par with Superfly... but then again, what is? I think Mayfield may have struggled to reach the lofty expectations established.

A step up from his 2 previous albums both released in 1974 (Sweet Exorcist & Got to Find A Way) There's No Place .... explores the social divide in the U.S.A. in the 50's as well as gun violence (Billy Jack) and love (So In Love) one of Curtis's best love songs. Other great songs are Blue Monday People & Jesus.

One of Curtis Mayfield's best albums. There's no place, is another seventies classic when Curtis was at the top of his game and releasing great LP's. Some great tracks here in, Billy Jack, so in love, and, Jesus. Curtis Mayfield was one of the best artists of the sixties and seventies.
