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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.8/100, a mean average of 75.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

Joan Armatrading is a great unknown to me and I think for most people.
A kinda related to Joni Mitchell as a singer-songwriter, this album has connection points to Jonis works.

Lovely album from Joan Armatrading. Brilliantly structured and crafted songs, including the superb, love and affection. An often overlooked album.

This is thee classic Joan Armatrading album, the one that put her on the map. Full of great songs Love & Affection, Save Me, Somebody Who Loves You & Down To Zero being the stand out tracks but all the tracks are 80/100 or better, she would never improve on this collection.
