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 86.5/100, a mean average of 85.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

Their most solid album, but there are parts of "Tusk" that I enjoy more than anything on this album.

Fleetwood Mac really blew away the competition with this album.
Excellent songs all the way through. Fave tracks: dont stop, go your
own way, gold dust woman.

I listened to this album for the first time in a trip with my friends, at first I just enjoyed a few songs on it(Dreams, Go Your Own Ways and Don't Stop are my favourite till today), but as the time went by, I found myself returning to listen it every often and all the songs seemed to have improved. Now this album is one of favourites.
