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 78.9/100, a mean average of 77.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.8.

Absolution is the absolute(see what I did there?) album by Muse, even though it isn't my favorite. It is a natural evolution of their previous album, the same sound, but more polished and more balanced.

Did not listen to Muse for a while. I love their first 3 albums, but after that it became to bombastic in my opinion. Absolution is my second favorite after Origin, but it is s really close call. The ending is fantastic with 'Ruled By Secrecy'. Underrated song.

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.

The best Muse album to date that is carried by Matt Bellamy’s amazing voice that rocks on every track.
