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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.1.

Such a good album, melancholic songs, good vocal perfomnaces
Their best album, followed by "tusk". It is an example of the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. they have got 3 good lead vocalists. 3 good songwriters..Lindsay Graham really added another dimension to the sound of the group. It slowly became a huge hit, selling over 5 million copies by 1977. My fav song is "crystal" ...."Rumours" was a disappointment.
The epic shift to the Buckunham/Nick's version of the group that would be so successful blending catchy pop hooks into the rock, but somehow maintaining some depth and grit in the process. So different from the original Mac, it really is like it's own seismic debut album. As great and well received as it was though, it was something of a prelude to the even bigger Rumours.
Though it might not be quite as consistent as Rumours, this is a great album! Rhiannon, Landslide, Say That You Love Me, are my top three but there's really not a bad song on here. It's strange the think that this was the first album with Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham, can't imagine the lineup without those two.
I don't think this album gets all the love it deserves. Yeah, it's no Rumours, but it's still a very remarkable work.
Fleetwood Mac is one of my favorite set of artists that I have saved on my iHeartRadio station for young punks that don't understand music :P. Back when I bought albums I didn't like them all that much (I only have their Greatest Hits, but have many Pink Floyd, Prince, and Classical albums), but their music grew on me. I also stream a few of their albums (all that I am allowed) off of amazon prime. (Wow streaming sure has opened a lot of doors for me. I can now discover and listen to oldies I wasn't around for). I think I didn't like them at first because they are not "rocking", or even particularly progressive, and if Fleetwood Mac was released today, I think it would be described as country pop, which I am currently discovering as well. I find I really like Fleetwood Mac and also current country pop (although the current ones will have to be rated once time passes and we can evaluate more objectively), because they know what the best sounds are and they play them. They also have great voice leading practice unlike many blatant offenders I will not name. Above all, their music is creative and fun. I docked five points because they don't seem to use too many chords, so it is not very progressive.
Not as consistently top-shelf as Rumours, but with some arguably higher peaks.
Pretty good , a real precursor to what was soon to follow
Not as strong as Rumours
But very beautiful, and a close second best for the mighty mac
The guitar in "I'm So Afraid" is awesome.
Favorite tracks: Monday Morning, Blue Letter, Rhiannon, Crystal, Landslide, I'm So Afraid
