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 has a Bayesian average rating of 73.5/100, a mean average of 72.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.5.

Yeah, I agree. This is certainly their best. This is what I think of when I think ABBA. It sounds like their own sound.

A few weaker tracks on the second half drag it down a bit, but overall, a great album.

Pop meloso (y melodioso), en la mejor tradición de cierta corriente centroeuropea de música ligera caracterizada por el cuidado en el tratamiento de las melodías, la presencia potente de las armonías vocales y una variedad de tempos y ritmos apta para todos los gustos. El tiempo y la persistencia lo han terminado convirtiendo en un icono.

Dancing Queen is THE perfect pop song (period!). Great cover picture also. If you should own one ABBA album, this should be the one!
