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 mean average rating of 85.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 86.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

Fav. Tracks: Go Your Own Way, The Chain.
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.
One of the few albums that cross generations. I find it hard to believe I found an album I love as much as my mother does.
great singing and great music
Too much filler to be the best Fleetwood Mac album but still a very good album.
I although like the live version of this album, there's even more spirit.
Favorite Tracks:Never Going Back Again, Songbird
I like almost everything about this album. It's energetic, catchy and emotional all at the same time while still maintaining a generally consistent aesthetic throughout. The instrumentation is fantastic particularly on "Never Going Back" which, I think, is the best song on the record. The songwriting is top-notch and the story behind the album is fascinating. The vocals are great for the most part, though I don't really find Christine McVie's all too appealing. My least favorite moments on the album all featured her. Sorry to McVie but Rumours is still full of enough jams to make up for its shortcomings.
Is a strong album and can see why it is rated highly but not consistent enough for me. Go Your Own Way is a great track along with many others. Agree it is a classic album.
