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 81.2/100, a mean average of 80.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

Very good grunge album, but its length holds it back from being one of my personal favorites, there is a lot of great stuff here, but also a fair amount of filler and tracks longer than they need to be.
Their most quality and consistent album. Nothing before or after was quite as tight as they had it here. One of the quintessential grunge albums of the 1990s.
This is a very similar record to Badmotorfinger in relation to layout, style and quality. The layout is similar with most of the elite songs coming near the start or on the first half of the album. The quality then slowly drifts off the closer you get to the end. They seem to be full of experimentation and ideas at the start and by the end it becomes repetitive and a bit dull. The quality is still present on this release with some outstanding songs such as Black Hole Sun and Spoonman but they just don't maintain this. Cornell's voice, just like on most of their releases, is excellent and he makes even the more dull sounding songs have character and gives them some much needed life. Overall, I absolutely love Soundgarden's style of music but they can't remain consistent with their quality on their records which holds them back in my opinion especially on this release.
Obra-prima de sue período! Sempre impactante!
Second favourite Soundgarden album after Badmotorfinger. Agree with other comments that a little over long but still an album with great moments. worth owning and playing on a regular basis although I tend to play the first 50% more than the second.
a tad bloated - maybe losearound 20 mins /4 or so tracks and it would be an absolute stellar album
Definitely, a frontloaded album, which is also quite long and scratching some songs could have made a better entity.
IMHO the ideal album length is about 52 minutes and all albums longer than that become numbing and the amount of needed filler songs increases with each minute. The ideal length of a rock song is around 4-5.30 minutes. If longer then the composition should have something to say beyond that 5-minute mark. Progressive rock songs could be longer but that is a different issue, i have never had problems with those as the best compositions keep the listener's attention in other ways.
Rough, hard-rocking and quite accessible.
Couldn't really get in to this album, found it a bit underwhelming despite its critical acclaim. But no one can deny Cornell's amazing voice and Black Hole Sun's greatness. I like Fresh Tendrils and Fell On Black Days too.
Very good, but overrated, just a couple of songs are memorable.
Overall it's not my stuff, but I found the stretch beginning with track 3 and ending with track 7 surprisingly enjoyable.
