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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.7/100, a mean average of 79.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

This is not a perfect album but it is close enough that I have no issues saying it has to be one of the greatest of all time.
Magnificent singing, the best Elton album and his top songs are on here as well: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Candle In The Wind that are ones of thebest ever made, but 90% of the album is great. I can only complain about Jamaica Jerk-Off and Social Disease, they're not good.
Extraordinaria colección de canciones, comparable en calidad con cualquier recopilación.
Some nitpickers may say the as a single album this could have been even more cohesive and even better as a whole.
Unnecessary afterthoughts, basically most of us are very glad that this was made like this.
The overall production values are top-notch, this album sounds great and the musicians are top class.,
rambling genre-crossing the odd classic mixed in quite a few. double album pop
I know taste is subjective and all but, this album being below 7 Radiohead albums just shows how absurd this website is lol
Basically Elton's greatest hits album with what is probably one of the best openers of all time. Candle of the Wind, Bennie and the title track are also amazing tunes. Overall one of the best 50/100 albums of all time easily
I listened to a lot of Elton John as a kid, as we had one Elton John LP (not this one) that I listened to on my record player over and over again. Then, for a while, I sort of forgot about Elton John, maybe because he wasn't quite cool enough or edgy enough for my late adolescent tastes. As I go back through his catalog, however, I am struck by how much more Elton John's sound is "rock" as opposed to "pop." Sure, he spends a lot of his time sitting at the piano, but it's much more in the vain of Little Richard than, say, Michael Bolton. There are a number of Elton John's hits here, out of which my favorite is "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting," one of the great throwback rock and roll songs of the early seventies.
A masterpiece of pop. A megastar at his peak. I read once that during the period between 71-75, Elton could have written an epic pop songs using the words from the back of a cereal box. Possibly true, but he had the hall of fame lyricist Bernie Taupin...so, you get this...
Not a massive fan of Elton John but I do love this album from start to finish. Nice variety right through.
One of the greatest albums of all time. I'm not sure many will agree, but I don't think there's a single song of filler here. Yes, I even like Jamaica Jerk-Off. The fact that Elton was able to fill two records full of music with his best work is an accomplishment that shouldn't be ignored. Having it ranked as the 234th-best album of all-time is about 200 spots too low.
