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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.9/100, a mean average of 79.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

The live Maggot Brain that comes on the bonus EP alongside this album really calls attention to the detrimental lack of Eddie Hazel in later Funkadelic.

Agree with other BEA users in the comments - funk is so underrated on this site! One Nation Under a Groove is a brilliant album without any dull tracks. Beautiful guitar and bass interplay.

Arguably the greatest funk album ever, and yet it's only ranked 31st for 1978 and way out of the top 1,000 overall. a shame

A good album .. not a great album. The groove comes and goes and there exists a certain possibility that this record was mixed in the studio under altered states of minds. Go figure.

Why is this not, at least, in our top 300? It's brilliant. Not one song without the words 'groovy' or 'funk' in it. And I love it. A feel good album that you van get into right away. Guitar playing is great, and some of the lyrics are my favourite ever. A must listen.

"One nation under a groove" is one of my all time favorite singles, probably in the top 20..This album remains one of the biggest selling R/B albums of all time. When it came out, Warners could not print enough to keep up with the demand. The same thing happened with the 1979 follow up, "Uncle Jam wants you" with the classic "Knee Deep".
