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 78.2/100, a mean average of 76.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

Queen já lapidava sua assinatura.
I think this album goes largely under rated due to the huge rock anthems the group would go on to create in the future. There is so much quality on this record with the performances being one of the major driving forces of this. All 4 members of the group are brilliant on here but the show is stolen primarily by Brian May on guitar and Mercury's vocal. The two of them are a true powerhouse of rock music and I don't think the have sounded more raw or grittier than on this release. The power they put into this just seems so passionate and full of love for the art of making music. This leads to some progressive masterpieces but also some absolutely beautiful and delicate moments such as on Nevermore which is simply sensational. Some of the solos we get from May are brilliant as well with Ogre Battle and The March Of The Black Queen being the standouts for me. I can definitely see the argument that the first half is a little weaker than the second especially with the song The Loser In The End which really does not fit on this album at all. Overall, I think this is Queen's most consistent album in terms of style and quality with it displaying the range of the whole group while keeping the music focused and also making it a lot of fun to listen to.
Prog Queen is great
It ends much better than it starts, but overall it's still quite underwhelming for me. Mix is bad, singing very good as always with Freddie, and guitar work is maybe the best thing about it.
This album is largely forgotten in the media and radio. An album of many sides and genres mixed well.
The Dr. May guitar sound is already there.
White Queen is damn rear prog.
pretty incredible hard-driving sing along rock and roll
The cover is great but everything goes downhill from there. Some excellent playing, interesting production but it's all a prog/metal over the top mess with weak to no songs. What exactly is Father to Son about? The lyrics are the worst! A very dated combination of Tolkein gibberish and cole's notes Shakesepeare.
The whole idea with white and black side doesn't really work, the album is so unbalanced. There are some great moments in the black side, but I would skip the white side without much hesitation. Overall, 70/100.
Fantastic album from Queen Nevermore is incredible!!
I never liked this record. It sounds like scraps from the first record and there's nothing interesting going on with any aspect of this record. I think the band were all comatose for the majority of the recording process of this record. The new rendition of Seven Seas of Rhye is the only thing Queen II has going for it, but the original is better anyway, so I have no reason to even listen to this. The cover is cool. I can't think of anything else nice to say about this album.
