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 81.2/100, a mean average of 80.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

Late 70s Jorge Ben is the best period in his staggeringly long and prolific career. This record is probably the very peak of that career, with ‘78s A Banda do ze Pretinho nearly matching it.

Símbolo da década para o Brasil. Jorge Ben cantava a negritude, história e atual!

I only wanted to sample it but I ended up listening to the whole thing! I think its because the music is Latin.

Fun, up-tempo, very energetic album. And it's aged remarkably well. Highly recommended!

Couldn't agree more with Norm on this. Essential starting point for anyone intrigued enough in the beautiful and often crazy world that is 70s MPB. And once you're done with this record, check out Jorge's other stuff from 69-74 as well as Brun027's fantastic Brazil-centric overall chart.

Amazing album, with famed "Taj Mahal" on top of it all. A must-try for all you would-be Brazilian music discoverers.
