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 81.1/100, a mean average of 80.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

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.

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.
