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 79.1/100, a mean average of 78.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

Charming, but a little too soft and slow for my current taste.

Just A Little Lovin' and Son Of A Preacher Man are really good, the rest is solid.

Such an incredible voice, and the songs chosen here assure that it's always on full display. And "Son of a Preacher Man" is an all time great!

Dusty in Memphis, is one of the most stunningly beautiful records ever made. The choice of material is superb and Dusty is on top form throughout. Just a little lovin', is an excellent way to kick of an album that is full of fantastic songs. So much love, breakfast in bed, windmills of my mind, and, just one smile, are all great, in fact I could mention every song. It's a lovely album, an all time classic.

I'm surprised the rave reviews aren't pouring in for this truly great album. I cannot praise it highly enough - I've placed it at No.3 in my overall chart, No.2 in my decade chart and No.1 in my year chart; and would certainly rate it my favourite soul album, notwithstanding the greatness of Aretha, Otis, Marvin, Stevie, Al and the rest. A consummate, heavenly work from beginning to end. And to think that she was too scared to go to Memphis and do the vocals!

Her delivery is stunning because it feels so natural. Like she's just giving voice to the plea inside of her.

This record shows Dusty at her finest. A natural and unforgettable voice; no wonder that both the Pet Shop Boys & Q Tarentino brought her back into the spotlight.
