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 26% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.4/100, a mean average of 72.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.1.

Safe and boring in a time when music was exciting. Get in the bin.

A powerful album with great epic songs like the into of The Dam At Otter Creek to my fav track White, Discussion, along with all the hits. A brilliant piece of work.

Classic 90s album. One of those albums that everyone seemed to own back in the day. Ed Kowalczyk has one of the best vocals of alternative rock.

One of the most Meh albums of all time. As middle of the road as it comes. Over sentimental tripe played well enough. Sounds like a made for tv movie version of an edgy rock band. talented enough but just so damn plain.

I love albums beginning with a string of excellent tracks & 'Throwing Copper' may well have the greatest opening streak in the history of rock. Consider these if you will:

Track 1:"The Dam At Otter Creek" is incredible
Track 2: "Selling The Drama" is really good
Track 3: "I Alone" is great
Track 4: "Iris" is incredible
Track 5: "Lightning Crashes" is so powerful
Track 6: "Top" is solid
Track 7: "All Over You" is down right sublime
Track 8: "Shit Town" is just about my favourite song on the whole album

The streak is broken with track 9 "T.B.D" which quite frankly isn't very good

Tracks 1 - 8 = Greatest start in rock history

P.S does anyone know what Throwing Copper actually means ? I've searched on line to no avail
