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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 82.7/100, a mean average of 80.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.4.

Not a big Queen fan so I'm never going to tempted to get any more of there studio albums. (I do have 2 studio albums and neither impress me at all) Hence this does me well. I like most of the songs on it.

It is just a pleasure listening to one of the greatest divas of all time. Mercury could take a decent song and push it to the next level, or two or three. A good collection of their better known songs.

I love Queen, and have heard all of their records, but let's face it, they are better with songs, not albums.

Without a doubt the best compilation ever in a single CD along with Legend of Bob Marley. Every song is important and the flow is flawless, it almost fells like an actual album.
