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 78.5/100, a mean average of 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.2.

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.

The album is uneven (the gap between Welcome to the Jungle and Anything Goes needs to be measured in light years) and there’s some lyrics that are a bit cringe inducing, but three points in this album’s favor:

1) the opening riff of the record is among the best starts to any album, ever. Slash might not be the the most technical guitarist of all time, but he wrote some all-timer licks here.

2) the songs move at breakneck speed, with a lot going on throughout. That’s a legitimate skill and points to a strong songwriting talent.

3) I wasn’t part of the LA rock scene in the 80s, but from what I can tell, this record reflects it well. Fitting that the band succumbed to the trappings of success and excess.

I remember this album when released and enjoyed the singles and videos without it really being my scene. It still isn't but it's a fun album that I can appreciate.

Quizá pueda ser el mejor debut de la historia.
Obra maestra llena de grandes temas como Welcome to the jungle, Nightrain, Mr. Browstone, Sweet Child o'mine, Paradise City, Rocket Queen,...
Grandísimos tanto Axl como Slash con sus solos tarareables, volviendo a los clásicos con un sonido nuevo.
Y sin ninguna duda, el mejor disco de la banda.

Enjoyable album, with obvious hits, but also some misses. Evidently a classic nevertheless.

The previous "outdone by dream theater" commenter. In what way exactly? In sales? No, nowhere near. Critical acclaim? Again, nowhere near. So... in what way were they "outdone by dream theater"? That's right, they weren't. What a ridiculous and out of touch comment.

bands like guns n roses were outdone by dream theater (as much as I don't really care for htem) - so why should I rate these guys high out of respect?

A lot of filler, but definitely has some masterpieces.
