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 82.3/100, a mean average of 82.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

I’m purely rating this on the songs chosen alone. For new fans this or any version of greatest hits of his will do. The hits are just as good as the album cuts and vice versa, that can’t be said for too many artists.

One of the better Greatest Hits albums, this captures the period 1970-74 in Eltons career. It is just one great song after another, obviously time restrictions appllied given that a vinyl record can only hold about 25 mins of music per side before the sound starts to be affected. Otherwise Tiny Dancer and Burn Down The Mission would have been included.

Can't go wrong with this collection but it's a little threadbare in the digital era, barely scratching the surface of John's music from his classic period. There are better collections available now. Better yet, get acquainted with some of the original albums.

This is one of the best single disc compilation albums of all time - hit after hit.

Good way to discover Elton's early work (that is, the hits that made him famous). But if your looking for great music start to finish in one recording, try Captain Fantastic or Yellow Brick Road.
