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 16% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.3/100, a mean average of 73.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.9.

Typical Queen album containing a couple of amazing tracks (Fat Bottomed Girls and Don't Stop Me Now) and amongst mostly forgettable tracks (all the rest of them). But it's not a terrible album.
This album definitely lacks consistency, but when there is a high point it's really high.
Pontos altos incríveis!
Not as consistent as say "The Game" but good enough with some strong tracks. Rating (83.31)
Truly one of the most inconsistent albums of all time, in both regards to quality and style. Don't Stop Me Now and Bicycle Race are two of Queen's finest, and I find Mustapha and More Of That Jazz to be highly underrated. And then there's In Only Seven Days, which is quite honestly awful, plus other forced filler tracks like Let Me Entertain You, Dreamers Ball, and Leaving Home Ain't Easy. Should it be in 1978's top 20 though? Yes.
I was holding out high hopes for this album, given that its infamous double A-side of ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ and ‘Bicycle Race’ consists of two of my favourite Queen singles, but the remainder of the album is disappointing in comparison.
The obvious highlight is Don't stop me now -wich IMO is one of their best songs ever-. Fat bottomed, Bicycle, Jealousy and Dead are fine too.
2 tracks are lousy IMHO: Fun it and Mustapha wich I think is one of the worst album openers I can think of.
Ups and downs as usual.
This is my favorite Queen album. From start to finish, I like every song, particularly Dead On Time, Jealousy, and Don't Stop Me Now.
Queen's party album. It really is a hoot. As usual with queen album's the strongest songs are the singles. Fat bottomed girls, bicycle race, and the wonderful don't stop me now, are all grade A queen tracks. Other standouts are Freddie's bizarre Mustapha, his beautiful ballad, jealousy, and Brian's overlooked gem, leaving home ain't easy. There's plenty of rocking going on here with, let me entertain you, and John's if you can't beat them. Not all the tracks are great, but there's nothing bad here. It's just good fun.
Best Track: Fat Bottom Girls
