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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.0/100, a mean average of 76.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

There are a lot of enjoyable songs on this album and I like the way he evenly distributes his song types onto each side. Side 1 is a much more band led and jazz influenced side making it more to my preference and side 2 is a lot more ballad heavy. The feel of the first six songs is just so energetic and fun and his voice sounds even better when backed by a big jazz band. This leads to fantastic songs such as Deed I Do, It Has To Be You and Let The Good Times Roll. The second side is quite dull in comparison but has its moments when it shines such as the closing track. If you love his vocal it really does shine on side 2 and carries the songs even when the music is a bit dull. Overall, if side 1 made up the whole album this could be sensational but the slower second half lets the record down on the whole for me.
Solid, but better Ray was coming later.
big band - side one
ballads - side two
Really good album I hear very good R and B.
This release doesn't really showcase the genius of Ray Charles sadly.
Em sua maturidade o gênio mostrava o que sabia fazer.
Nothing wrong with Ray Charles, but this album didn't really pique my interest.
An enjoyable album. Not quite as great as the ridiculous title suggests. Still full of good songs though.
Band arrangements are over the top, but his vocals here are at his best, mixing soul, rock&roll, and jazz all into one. This LP is takes "Big Band" and turns it on its arse.
Not my favorite of his, but really good.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
