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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.6/100, a mean average of 75.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.5.

at least 70%....105x (88,98% of time on this album were evalued at least as 70%)


I have developed a complex rating system, which, however, better expresses the qualitative difference between songs, albums and artists.

I evaluate the individual sections of the songs (approx. 20 seconds) and then I make the overall average (from 10 best sections of the song).
= % AVG
but also I make in mPTS, that is why, that the difference between 60% song/album and 80% song/album cannot express the real difference
as good as this expression between albums in mPTS 36 000 mPTS contra 320 000 mPTS
In first case is the 80% album only 1,33x better than the 60% valued album.
In the second case is the 80% fast 9x better than the 60% valued album, and that works better in my opinion.
That´s beacuse, everyone can make 60% album, but 80% album can do much less artist, and 90% album only a few artists.

EXPLANATION:
mPTS = % value x koeficient

100% = koefizient 500
96% - 99% = koefizient 320
90% - 95% = koefizient 160
86% - 89% = koefizient 80
80% - 85% = koefizient 40
76% - 79% = koefizient 20
70% - 75% = koefizient 10
60% - 69% = koefizient 6
50% - 59% = koefizient 5
40% - 49% = koefizient 4
30% - 39% = koefizient 3
20% - 29% = koefizient 2
0% - 19% = koefizient 1

Overall a fairly uninspiring album. We are the Champions is lovely, We Will Rock You is very overrated (but the guitar solo is great). A few other decent highlights (It's Late, Who Needs You surprisingly I quite enjoyed) but overall it's not a great album in my view

Spread Your Wings is super underrated, and I like two first tracks, the rest is not so special.

A front heavy album with some great songs that are a little less well known by people who aren't Queen fans that deserve recognition. There are obviously the two big songs right at the start but then after that you get All Dead, All Dead and Spread Your Wings which are just brilliant. This is mainly due to the incredible vocal by Mercury and a not so shockingly good vocal performance from Brian May especially if you have heard '39. May on the guitar is brilliant as well for most of this record and some of his solos really elevate the album such as on It's Late where he really lets loose and we are really rewarded for this. However, what lets this album down is the filler content which there is quite a lot of. Tracks like Fight From The Inside and Get Down, Make Love really drag the record down in terms of quality and they are very boring tracks. There are a few more songs like this as well but these two are the weakest for me. It can also get a bit repetitive and you can guess where the music is going to go. Overall, I don't think this is their best album nor is it near them but there is a lot of hidden gems to find on here and it is an enjoyable experience.

Two absolute rock evergreens. A really frontloaded album. B-side contains mostly B-grade stuff..

I love "Sheer Heart Attack" and "Spread Your Wings". Two of the first tracks and two of the last are very good too. But there are some tracks that i don't enjoy at all.
