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 82.1/100, a mean average of 80.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.2.

the biggest of all time
Excellent album for its time. All tracks are solid.
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
It comes with the title of the best selling album of all time. Ignoring one's subconscious negative reaction towards commercially successful music and trying to look past it might not an easy task, but it's definitely worth it. The three tracks sequence of Thriller - Beat It - Billie Jean is the most famous part and it is indeed phenomenal ( with Billie Jean my presonal choice as the best one), but there are a lot of different styles (R&B/funk/disco/rock etc.) successfully blended into a surprisingly cohesive - for something so pop-oriented - and oh so very groovy album. It might be hard to imagaine, but MJ shines even brighter than usual.
Greatest album ever !!
Que dire... Le roi de la pop, simplement.
Favourite Michael Jackson album
Ever. It’s a game changer. Thriller really did a lot for music and the black community. That album showed he couldn’t be ignored by white stations or radios. With a song like Billie Jean or Beat It, the album showed that he’s MJ and that you can’t eras the man no matter how much you try.
Wanna Be Startin Somethin is a very black catchy song. This should show his songwriting skills and it’s a banger. Timeless tune. 10/10
Baby Be Mine another banger. Very R&B/Soul kinda song, relaxing and catchy same time. 9/10
The Girl Is Mine a classic one. It needs more love I don’t get the backlash against this song. It has a nice sound into it. 8/10
Thriller hands down one of the best songs. A Disco/Funk kinda song which has everyone grooving, the video is iconic and changed the game for music videos. The song to this day is timeless and didn’t age at all 10/10
Beat It is a classic tune, it’s one of the 5 songs for me that made Thriller What people don’t get is that black rock and white rock arent the same. Beat It counts as a black rock song cause you could feel the black vibes into it. The video is iconic, from the leather jacket to the choreography which is the second best after Thriller. 10/10
Billie Jean is iconic. From the song to the video to the Motown 25 performance, it’s another song that showed MJ can’t be ignored. Billie Jean is iconic in every way. The Beat has people grooving and even singing it in their head. The song really made him MJ. The video is iconic. The tip toe, walking on the floor til everything lights up, the freeze frame the video is hands down the second best video only behind Thriller , and was seen as a breakthrough for blacks including black artists on MTV and of course the Motown 25 anniversary performance which had the world dropping their jaws. The Moonwalk had everyone go crazy. It will be recognised as one of the most iconic thing ever. 10/10
Human Nature is a relaxing Soul/Soft Rock kinda song. The sound is amazing and it never aged, it needs more love and recognition cause it’s timeless. 9/10
PYT another banger. The catchy vibe in it is amazing, the black sound is defining and never aged to this day it sounds fresh. 10/10
The Lady In My Life is the best way to end the album. A nice slow R&B/Soul kinda song. To this day I don’t get tired of it and it’s worth to listen to even slow dance to.
The album overall is a 10/10 for me. Timeless, very black, groovy and funky. Never gets old to this day I still listen to it, this is how I became a Michael Jackson fan. An influential album for everybody of all races, genders, ages, and music genres, this is a must listened to album indeed.
The greatest Pop/R&B album ever made.
Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’ is a perfect opener, Baby Be Mine is an underrated great song, The Girl Is Mine is credited for helping to promote racial equality in the United States, the duet is fun.
Thriller, Beat It, Billie Jean, Human Nature is probably the greatest run of any pop album, one of the greatest of any album. P.Y.T is awesome and The Lady In My Life is a great ending for the album.
More than just an album, Thriller has remained a global cultural multi-media phenomenon for both the 20th and the 21st centuries, smashing musical barriers (it paved the way for other African-American artists to achieve mainstream recognition) and changing the frontiers of pop forever.
But its mainly because the music on it is amazing.
Perfection is timeless. 10/10
- This Girl is Mine
- Billie Jean
- The Lady In My Life
One of the most significant albums of my childhood. A closing track short of perfection, but close enough.
