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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

Para ser un album doble creo que es bastante consistente y variado, una grata experiencia. Veo que Sara y Tusk son los temas mejor calificados, pero para mi Storm y Sisters Of The Moon son lo mejor del album.

I never loved Rumors, then I heard this. Tusk is weird at first but has so much going on in it. One of my most favorite albums. Give it a couple of listens.

Acoustic orgasm all over. The details to this album are astounding: First of all, the percussion is just perfect, it keeps you perfectly in the flow; and then the way all the guitars, background vocals, organs, everything perfectly fade in and out. Perfect perfect PERFECT. And that combined with the perfect songwriting and vocals of Christine McVie (née Christine Perfect) and Stevie Nicks just creates the most dangerous cocktail of mellow emotions. I still think some songs of Fleetwood Mac should come with a disclaimer reading "you will cry".

They named this album after Mick Fleetwood's work tool apparently. The music is better than this title suggests.

What would seem like an album of opinion. The most interesting albums, I believe, are albums that can be seen differently by multiple amounts of people. Not just amazing, not just great, not just average, not just horrible, not just trash, but all of these things (to some/to many): which is exactly my point. Albums are an expression, a music artist's piece of art, and art can be seen differently by so many people.

An underrated record. Tusk, doesn't quite have the great songs of, rumours, but at least it sees Fleetwood Mac taking a few chances, especially on the Lyndsey Buckingham tracks. There's even a new wave feel to some of the tracks. Stevie Nicks is on form again, contributing, Sarah, and, storms, both excellent. The most famous cut is probably the odd title track, a strange little number. Tusk, is an ambitious album that sometimes fails to reach the heights that it aims for but at least it sees a band not afraid to branch out after the mega success of their last LP. Good album.
