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 82.5/100, a mean average of 81.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

One of defining moments in modern metal. Crack the Skye was my favourite for quite some time, but now I think Leviathan is just a tad better. Brutal and epic, fast, thrashing and complex, complete chaos and tender beauty all at once.

El segundo disco de Mastodon nos presenta en esta ocasión un álbum conceptual alrededor del elemento del agua y basado en la novela de Herman Melville, Moby Dick. 'Leviathan' nos presenta a una banda que ya sabe lo que hace tras un brutal 'Remission', quizás más medida en sus esfuerzos, añadiendo buenos momentos de melodía y siguiendo en su evolución hacia el Sludge Progresivo que tanto los caracterizaría en futuras ediciones; pero sin bajar el ritmo en ningún momento y manteniendo unas revoluciones frenéticas durante todo el disco, y lo hacen desde la inicial "Blood and Thunder", que sirve como una carta de presentación inmejorable para adivinar lo que vamos a encontrar en este plástico. Mastodon se ha convertido por méritos propios posiblemente en la banda más grande del siglo veintiuno, y trabajos como este han contribuido a crear el legado del grupo.

One of the best metal albums ever. Hearts Alive is amazing, but so are most of the other tracks. Lots of great riffs on this album, and the drumming is amazing.

I'm not a big fan, but this is very good, tough and with an awesome guitar sound. Blood and Thunder is a masterpiece.

The first Mastodon album I got into, and still by far my favourite. It's the heaviest album I've listened to that I still absolutely, wholeheartedly enjoy. It's like watching the movie 300. Somehow, despite all the blood and brutality, it still manages to keep a sense of majesty, and the dark, gritty story it tells is grossly engaging in its own colourful way. And that ending. Holy fuck, that ending. You can't get more perfect than finishing a 47 minute sludge metal album with an acoustic seafarer's lament. It's like the light at the end of a very long, very dark tunnel. And it's the only joy you've felt in 3 days. And you'll probably starve to death before you reach it.

I seriously cannot put this record down. My ears are bleeding. Please send help.

I don't think there has been a better metal album since this release. Blood & Thunder is the best here.

WHITE WHALE! HOLY GRAIL! I wish Mastodon would return to sludge and take a step away from progressive metal and stoner rock as they have been doing lately. This kicks major ass.
