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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 77.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.8.

The best live album I've ever heard. Just 50+ minutes of relentless punk capturing the Ramones at their best.

If you're a Ramones fan or a fan of 70's punk this is a no brainer. Great 1977 New Years Eve show at the height of the Ramones power. Original 4 Johnny Joey Tommy and Dee Dee. This is well recorded, sonically great and so so satisfying. One of the greatest live albums EVER and my personal favorite Ramones album. An absolute must for any rocker.

The only Ramones album you need - period. Fast, edgy, catchy, mucho energy and fun. This album is a house wrecker - every time it came on at a party something was broken

Their first live album, this captures the Ramones before they got all speed and thrash towards the end of their career. This album makes you feel as if you were there and it's an amazing chronicle of the band from beginning to end.
