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 81.3/100, a mean average of 80.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

Wow, where did this come from? Before listening to it, I was somehow pretty sure I wouldn't be able to connect with this. Totally unexpected, it blew me away. This is what pop heaven sounds like, so many catchy tunes. This kind of albums are usually based on two or three hits and the rest is the so called "filler". Here every song is a hit.

I only really have one complaint about this album, I think the vocals are mixed very strangely. They feel claustrophobic, like she’s in a very small closet. Other than that, I like every aspect of this album; the instrumentation, the writing, the performances. All these aspects work with each other in a fantastic way.

I also just wanted to let Brad1770 know that when you look up easy listening smooth FM friendly rock music, this is not the first album cover to come up. As of now, it's actually Texas Flood by Stevie Ray Vaughan. Which I feel is a bit inaccurate.

A classic. I didn't purchase this album for many years, because I had her greatest hits album. This is way better. She has a down to earth voice and is a very good piano player.

I've had this album for many years, and never get tired of listening to it. Whether as a vocalist, a musician, or a songwriter, Carole sparkles. A true masterpiece, this album would work well in anyone's collection.
