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 mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

There was always a certain radio-friendliness to Nirvana's sound that Kurt could handle well enough not to make them look like wannabe punks, it actually defined their style in a way... Dave can't.

Dave has found himself a band and emerges better as a front man and that benefits the quality of the music. You can hear more experience on this album than on the raw debut. Some of the bands best songs come from this album.

Really good album, with consistently really good songs start to finish. Can't list favorites because it's well more than half the album.

Great album, if a little inconsistent in terms of songwriting. Easily their best album and a standout late-90s hard rock/post-grunge album

Wellll, at least this has the great song Everlong on it, which is perhaps the best Foo Fighters song ever. That automatically ranks this above their previous self-titled album, which has NO great singles on it.

The best Foo Fighters album will always be the first one but this one is second. Now that they were a full band instead just Dave playing all by himself the sound and the production is so much better and it has more energy.. ohh and it has Everlong nuff said.

Fantastic album, but the problem I have with all of their albums is consistency. Still love them

A very good album from the Foo Fighters. My favorite album of theirs is probably There is Nothing Left to Lose, but this is a close second.
