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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.4/100, a mean average of 76.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

There are very few bands I'd recommend to start with a best of of (maybe the Cure and the Chemical Brothers, though their albums are great by themselves) so it should be unlikely that I recommend a best of my favorite band, especially one whose sound is so broad and different from one album to the rest. That's how great a compilation is, The Sounds of Science manages to capture the manic energy, the crazy scope and the humor of the band through a double CD. I never listen to it, I love their albums far too much, but I still think it is, unlike their further best-of, a very commandable gateway to those fantastic Hall of Famers.

Sure, it's got all the hits, but it's also got loads of rare songs on it that you probably haven't heard unless you're a hardcore collector. Worth owning just for that, even though most of them aren't great.
