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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.5/100, a mean average of 76.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.1.

This album, with aggressive guitar riffs and powerful vocals by Axl Rose, exemplifies rock's rebellious spirit -- as well as the misogyny that came with it.

The huge songs on this album are amongst some of the greatest of all time but most of the other songs on here are pretty skippable. They aren't one of the best bands technically so they really rely on those hooks and choruses sucking in the listeners and for the most part this isn't extremely effective. This causes the record to feel extremely repetitive with pretty much all of the weaker tracks sounding the same and feeling insignificant. Despite this, when they get the formula right they create some of the greatest rock songs of all time. When the infectiousness is there it completely hooks you in and the songs get stuck in your head for weeks after listening to them. Overall, when listening to this release I find myself just waiting for the next big song with hardly any of the filler tracks feeling like they have any substance which makes for an inconsistent record.

Very solid and heavy hard rock album with glam aesthetics. It doesn't have thought-provoking lyrics or super complicated structure, but it consists of pure bangers with not a single bad one. Guitar solos are amazing and choruses are really anthemic. Two biggest highlights are opening Welcome To The Jungle - for me their best track, and Sweet Child O Mine - iconic track deserving its status. It may be a little overrated, but it still rules.

Maybe it’s overfamiliarity with the tracks but this hasn’t aged as well as some other late 80’s albums. Still some great tracks but the overall quality doesn’t feel the same as when I first heard this 35 years ago (my god, was it that long ago!). Still a great album but not a top 100 for me anymore

Good Album, some filler but the 3 singles are 10/10, overrated though

The three singles (Sweet Child, Paradise City and Welcome To The Jungle) are seminal hard rock tracks and will be remembered for centuries to come. Mr Brownstone and Nightrain are okay, but the rest is mostly filler.
