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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.9/100, a mean average of 74.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.8.

Tras su primera etapa, más cercana al country rock, los Eagles se inclinan por una música decididamente rockera (sin despreciar la melodía). No todas las canciones son espléndidas, pero la que da título al álbum vale por todo el disco.

I bought this album exactly 45 years ago, and my first impression, not impressed, because there were so many ballads, and the second side was left almost unplayed.
Hence I can easily say that this is one of the most overrated albums of all time. It has 2 good songs and 2 mediocre. The rest are just throwaways.
GOOD:
- Hotel California
- New Kid in Town
Moderate
- Life in the fast lane
- Wasted time (barely)

The title track is amazing, the guitar work is stunning. The rest doesn't hit the same high, but it's still got a handful of great songs.

Title track is a classic no doubt about that, New Kid is good too, Victim of love and Fast Lane are ok.

A huge album with a handful of excellent songs. A fair chunk of this album is the Eagles at their best. I do which that Joe Walsh had a better introduction to the band than Pretty Maids All in a Row, and I don't know that Wasted Time needed a reprisal, but everything else is great. Hotel California is almost mirrored on the back half by The Last Resort. The band rock hard on Life in the Fast Lane and Victim of Love.

They only had 3 top 20 hits in the UK and this album features 2 of them, "Hotel California"(No.8) & "New kid in town"(No.20), but the best songs on this album are "Life in the fast lane" and "Try and love again". Unfortunately the rest is filler.

Try as it might, there is no way for side B to keep up with side A.
