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 artists can have several thousand ratings)

This artist is rated in the top 1% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.6/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 18.3.

I'm going to be exactly the guy the former comment is talking about and say that Queen is more a singles/live performances band than an album band. Great stuff, just never cohesive enough for my tastes to sit and enjoy a whole LP.

Ah, Queen. What a group. What a bunch of talent. Totally unique.
Some here have said they're a singles group, but I disagree. Sure, they had excellent singles (Queen's Greatest Hits has to be thee best greatest hits album ever), but to say they were a singles group is a serious oversight. Their 70s albums (in particular their initial run of albums), many artists would've given their right arm to have come up with albums that great - from the debut through to A Day At The Races, all of which were consistently brilliant (Especially Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack and A Night At The Opera). And after the initial run, there's some fine (and fun) albums, News Of The World, Jazz, The Game, The Works, and Innuendo spring to mind.
In north America, their popularity dipped off in the early to mid 80s due to the luke-warm reception to Hot Space, Freddie not wanting to tour there, and the payola issues which meant their new material wasn't getting airplay (radio airplay was vital if you wanted to sell a single in the 80s). Globally (outside North America) Queen remained huge and went from strength to strength - something which a lot of the major 70s acts didn't manage to do.
Now what you personally prefer is subjective. However, some - mostly those in the U.S - claim that the group are so successful because of the movie, but if you stop and think about that, it's a ridiculous claim. The evidence of their success was there long before the movie. Worldwide they'd outsold Zeppelin, Floyd, and The Stones - and were about to overtake Madonna in sales back in 2017. And again, before the movie, they were the most streamed legacy act along with The Beatles and Jackson. See the Chartmasters analysis link regarding any of this info: https://chartmasters.org/2017/10/best-selling-artists-albums-and-singles-of-all-time/18/
Did the Elton John movie have the same success? No. As much as I love them, I don't think a Zeppelin or The Rolling Stones or even Beatles movie would have the same level of success these days either. Queen's music is timeless and Freddie Mercury remains a fascinating character with outstanding talent.
All in all, Queen were a superb group, deserving of their place in music history as one of the all time greats.

Queen is great, but would not be in my top 10 favorites. Since the Bohemian Rhapsody movie came out, people are ranking them up there with the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and even the Beatles. What great album does Queen have, other than "A Night at the Opera"?I remember playing Queen in the 80s, and being ridiculed. Now the're the greatest band of all time.

Queen deep cuts are underrated and ran the gambit from folksy/novelty to melodramatic to calypso to heavy, even thrash, metal and much in between.

Songs worth your ear:
Who Needs You (calypso/island music)
Bring Back (that Leroy Brown), Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon, Seaside Rendezvous, Good Company, Dreamer’s Ball (ragtime/novelty)
‘39 (folk)
Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy, The Millionaire Waltz, Misfire (novelty/multi-genre/gender-bending)
Dead on Time, Flick of the Wrist, Ogre Battle (heavy metal)
Stone Cold Crazy (thrash metal)
Sleeping on the Sidewalk (blues)
Sheer Heart Attack (punk)
In the Lap of the gods (operatic)

Plus many many others

They're albums can be spotty from time to time but Queen at their peak is truly a all time great band and having Freddy Mercury in your band doesn't hurt either.

In my top 10 artists, there's nothing quite like them, up there with the Beatles, (well nearly). The later albums went off the boil a bit but the earlier albums are classics. Freddie probably the best front-man of any band, Brian one of the best guitarists ever. If you don't like Queen, you don't like music.

Criminally, almost laughably underrated on this site (probably because they are perceived as more of a singles band). Perhaps the best singer in all of rock mixed with four of the greatest songwriters. An eclectic, chameleonic juggernaut second only to The Beatles (and maybe Michael Jackson) in terms of pop sensibility - with each member having written a number one single - yet their first two albums were so heavy, progressive, and influential. Brian May's guitar is one of the most distinct in all of music. Freddie's career was bookended by some truly creative albums.
