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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.9/100, a mean average of 78.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.6.

En mi opinión, este es el recopilatorio más completo de Queen en un solo CD, superior al famosísimo Greatest Hits.

De las numerosas compilaciones de Queen que han sido publicadas, Absolute Greatest condensa mejor la historia de la banda, ya que cubre todos sus discos de forma equilibrada, incluso el álbum póstumo Made In Heaven, haciendo hincapié en sus éxitos más conocidos y clásicos, sin necesidad de abrumar al oyente con un gran número de tracks. Si aún no conoces a la banda, este álbum es una buena opción para descubrir su música.

You can't really replace classic greatest hits albums like Queen's first two, but this has done a decent job of fitting as many of their best singles onto a one disc release. Enjoyable enough, but as I said, those first two greatest hits albums will always be the ultimate Queen compilations.
