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 has a Bayesian average rating of 70.1/100, a mean average of 69.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 70.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

The album as a whole doesn't really hit the mark for me, I have this as their weakest album of 1975 - 1987 but there are still some nice highlights - Gypsy is great, and I like Book Of Love too.

Only 2 good songs: Gypsy, Hold me

Better than Tango but not as good as the Buckingham / Nicks albums that proceeded it. The production is very much in the solo Lindsey style which in a sense weakens it. Some great songs nevertheless by each writer: Hold Me, Only over You, That's Alright, and Book of Love.

Underrated. It's slick, pop-orientated and a great set of songs. A step towards the delicate soundscapes of Tango but retaining some of the raw emotion of Rumours. It has arguably the best harmonies and vocal interplay on any Fleetwood Mac album, which is saying something! I love it. My favourite album of theirs, for now at least.

I love this album I think it is where Christine McVie took over and Stevie & Lindsay added their contributions. Christine's songs (Gypsy being the exception) are so much stronger than the rest. It is so refreshing to hear her at the forefront.

Still quality, but starting sound a little washed-out.

absolutely adequate, well-crafted, catchy folk-pop songs. of course all this doesn't have the intellectual depth of an "birthday party"-record - but FM doesn't even try and therefore it's good customer-orientated quality music with 2-3 weaker songs.
