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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.9.

Amazing album, no fillers. This is not my favourite Muse album, but it's without a doubt their most consistent. Also the best Muse era and sound.

Standouts: Time Is Running Out, Stockholm Syndrome, Hysteria, Endlessly

Their guitar riff oriented album. The album has very memorable riffs and is an essential for rock music enthusiasts. The lyrical matter is interesting as always and is political and well versed.

Absolutely BRILLIANT album by Muse. There are so many great tracks on this album. One of my favourites which is not praised enough, is Thoughts of a dying athiest. LOVE THIS SONG! I'll rank this second best out of the current seven studio albums.
