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 has a mean average rating of 73.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 73.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.7.

Probably didn't help the album that Axl did a lot of talking in "Get in the Ring" and then allegedly couldn't/wouldn't back it up when Bob Guccione Jr. accepted the challenge. I mean if you're going to talk like that, even in song.....

out of the two use your illusions this one is my favorite, right off the bat Civil War is a killer track a modern day storytelling prog hard rock song, yesterdays is a great mid tempo ballad on and on this album is solid beginning to end

I don't see much filler here. 'You could be mine' and 'Estranged' are two of the best rock anthems of all time.

The issue that I have with the "Illusion" albums is the same problem I have with GNR albums in general: too much filler. There is no question they made some of the most memorable songs in history. But you oftentimes have to wade through a lot of marginal ones to find them.

Really what were thinking when they released two albums which are both double albums by vinyl standards? The result is extremely uneven albums with some of their best songs but some awful stuff too.

Enjoyed this album a bit more than the first UYI but this also suffered the same problems I had with that one. I wonder what would be the best tracklisting to combine the best of both Illusions...

The second of the two, use your illusion, albums, is at least a bit better than the first one, but still contains some of the worst songs G'N'R have ever done. Shotgun blues, and especially, get in the ring, are awful, unacceptable whinging and moaning from a spoilt brat of a singer. Knockin' on heaven's door, is just terrible, it takes an intimate death anthem, and turns it into, we are the champions, it's horrendous. There's a second completely pointless version of, don't cry, and something called, my world, or whatever the hell it is? . That's the really bad stuff out of the way, so what else is there? Estranged, is brilliant, one of the band's best, you could be mine, is excellent, as is Izzy's, 14 years, yesterdays, breakdown, and, civil war. Locomotive, is okay, as is Duff's, so fine, and, pretty tied up. Much better than the first one, but still nothing great, one single album would have been the best option, but hey, it's Guns'n'Roses, what do you expect? At least it's better than, Chinese democracy.
