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 81.9/100, a mean average of 80.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.4.

He certainly earned his tag as the King of Pop with this one. So many iconic songs on one album - Thriller, Billie Jean, Beat It. My personal favourite is Baby Be Mine.

The man made Thriller…

If you listen to this album, loudly, and don’t begin to dance…you might already be dead.

Love, love, love Human Nature (in addition to the usual hits on this record).

Hate, hate, hate The Girl is Mine

Hard to beat the king of pop at his best! The turn of Thriller, Beat It, and Billie Jean is one of the best in Pop history.

Muy buenos singles como Beat It, Billie Jean o Thriller, pero no veo un grandísimo álbum en conjunto. Esperaba más

This website seems to rank albums by artistic innovation and artistic vision. Thriller isn’t artistically thrilling (ha ha), but it is almost a perfect album with all super mega hits, and it still has an influence on the structure and style of pop music today. Pop music was pretty much sh*t and was produced like shit before this album, also rock music was kind of pop music. I prefer more artistic albums like Pink Floyd and Beatles type stuff but I have a great appreciation for this album and Michael Jackson
