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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.9/100, a mean average of 80.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

Overall it's not my stuff, but I found the stretch beginning with track 3 and ending with track 7 surprisingly enjoyable.

One of the defining albums of the 90s. The band had a heavy but zen like quality throughout. Fav tracks are My Wave, Fell On Black Days, Black Hole Sun, Spoonman, The Day I Tried To Live & 4th of July.

The closest thing that commercial Hard Rock was into jazz and psychedelic heavy stuff. Not only one of the best grunge albums of all time, Is one of the best rock albums of all time.

It's a little shame that is so underrated above the other Grunge bands... The phenomenal different and weird tunings used here, and tracks like "Limo Wreck" in a 12/8 time signature would stomp the feet on all faces of that bands.

I like this album more than Badmotorfinger, and I loved that album. Excellent record. One of my all-time favourites.

Sure the hits are fantastic, but Just Like Suicide, Head Down and 4th of July are my favourite songs here and that’s the quality of a great album. Both brilliant singles and album cuts. Love this record!
