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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 74.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell is the worthy follow-up to Social Distortion's Epic debut. But while that album wore its influence on its sleeves, the band fully embraces classic rock'n'roll here, with some blues and folk, all delivered with punk speed and energy.

Once again, Mike Ness delivers Springsteen-inspired hard-times lyrics, with hybrid vocals split between a punk snarl and a nasal twang. It is remarkable how old school his songs sound. They blend so well that If one didn't check the liner notes, one surely couldn't pick out the originals from the two old-school country covers.

The hybrid sound is a wonderful execution of the sounds pioneered by 80s alternative bands like
X, The Blasters, Gun Club, Rank and File and early Meat Puppets. "Sometimes I Do" could have been a Neil Young song and "This Time Darlin'" could have been mistaken for Hank Williams, same for "Born to Lose" for Springsteen.

The roots sound may isolate listeners looking for another song like "Story of My Life," but this record is a real delight for anyone who enjoys classic rock'n'roll in the vein of Rolling Stones.

Essential.

Condensed to a 7" Single:
A-Side: Bad Luck
B-Side: Sometimes I Do

Really good album. Social D was a really good band through the 90's.

Favorites: Making Believe, Born To Lose, When She Begins.

Really great rock and roll record! Excellent songwriting and guitar playing from Mike Ness. This is Social D's masterpeice as far as I'm concerned. Great record for just the average dude.

I grew up in the Midwest. All I knew was heavy metal and head banging, or pop 40 Casey Kassim. When I got to college I burned through classic rock, found alternative, which really took off big in 1993, and somewhere along I found this album and punk rock. I had no idea what it was. It was heavier than anything I heard before but it wasn't heavy metal. It had some 50's rock sound, some country, some rockabilly, and topics that I found foreign to me but I liked. In the end it spawned my adventure into my favorite genre, punk, and spent so much playtime it earned a spot in my top 10 favorite on my eclectic list. By the way, one test of a great album is if you can play it real low and sleep to it. This one passes that test and believe it or not makes you wake up happier, more at peace with the world. One regret, missing them in concert for this album tour - though I caught them a few times after.
