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 Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 76.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

This would have been Aerosmith at their peak–just good, bluesy hard rock 'n roll. Starts off with a bang with two of their very best tracks, Back in the Saddle and Last Child, and features other underrated career highlights like Rats in the Cellar, Nobody's Fault, and Home Tonight. Really solid all the way through, would recommend this one as the starting point for getting into Aerosmith.

A storm of pure energy right from the start which completely engulfs you in the passion of the artist which floods out from the music. Joe Perry and Brad Whitford give absolutely phenomenal performances on guitar and make even the weaker songs sound pretty good. Their solos are top quality and their playing is just so infectious and enjoyable. Add on top of this some solid drum work and bass playing and you get a fantastic blend which invigorates the listener and gives us so much to enjoy. To make it even better you then get Steven Tyler's classic wail which gives the music additional punch and makes the choruses so fun to sing along to. He has one of the most distinctive voices in music and he makes this album really stand out. Despite this, a few songs do not hit as well as the better songs and it does take a while for us to be able to properly get into them. The lyrics are quite simplistic as well and feel unnecessarily crude in places making the lyrics a bit of a write off. Overall, an action packed 35 minutes that never fails at filling me with energy and showing me a good time.

Hard to pick between Get Your Wings, Toys in the Attic and this as Aerosmith’s best 70’s album they were on a heck of a run. A lot of classic tracks like Back in the Saddle and Last Child and deep cuts here like Sick as a Dog and Lick and a Promise.

Very good guitar work, more experimental one at best moments sounds like metal or punk, but overall it's instrumentally great hard rock. Not so great lyrically and there are some duds, so I can't give it better score.

Opening tracks bring the heat, but they get progressively less compelling from there.
