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 7% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.4/100, a mean average of 78.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.9.

Este disco es curioso, se trata de la única grabación de Freddie Mercury en solitario (sin contar el Barcelona con Monserrat Caballé), y uno esperaría algo más rock, sin embargo encontramos un disco lleno de sintetizadores y pocas guitarras. Si bien podría considerarse malo, la verdad es que es un disco muy accesible. Lejos de las pretenciones es un disco muy lógico de lo que haría Freddie como solista, un año antes había grabado Love Kills junto a Giorgio Moroder, una canción Hi-NRG (high energy) que se incluyo en el soundtrack de la nueva versión de la película Metropolis, una canción que personalmente me gusta mucho, y Freddie hace un disco relajado y sencillo pero con algunas buenas canciones como My Love Is Dangerous con un sonido al estilo de Reggae, Mr. Bad Guy que es una canción más sinfónica, Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow una balada apasionante y dramática o Living On My Own que suena muy new wave. Algunas de estas canciones fueron regrabadas años después de la muerte de Freddie, como Made In Heaven y I Was Born To Love You que reinventaron los miembros sobrevivientes de Queen en canciones de rock más poderosas o Living On My Own que fue remezclada en una canción electrónica mucho más pegajosa e interesante. En fin, Mr. Bad Guy es un disco quizás irregular, pero si uno lo escucha sin prejuicios puede descubrir su encanto, lo recomiendo ampliamente.

Freddie's only solo pop LP. It's an enjoyable album, as you would expect from Freddie Mercury, but even though the songs are good, it certainly is a product of it's time, in terms of delivery. There's hardly any guitar here, it's basically a poppy synthesizer record. Living on my own, is the most well known track, a posthumous No:1 for Freddie in 1994, albeit in re-mixed form. I was born to love you, was a No:11 hit, which preceded the release of this album, and is again extremely poppy, Queen re-made the song for their, made in heaven, record, both are enjoyable. The song, made in heaven, itself, was another song Queen re-recorded for the album of the same name, the Queen version wins hands down. There must be more to live than this, was originally a duet sung with Michael Jackson, eventually released on Queen's, forever, compilation, the version here is far superior. Other standouts are, let's turn it on, foolin'around, and the beautiful closing track, love me like there's no tomorrow. All in all, a fun record, but hampered by that eighties sound.
