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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.5/100, a mean average of 77.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

Good grunge / alternative metal album, very hit or miss for me and a bit too long.

A consistent album with every song being of a good quality and a few going beyond that. The great songs on here are mainly at the beginning of the album where the ideas and energy seem to be flowing freely. The two songs that grabbed me were Rusty Cage and Outshined which I find myself revisiting the most out of all the songs. I do think the further into the record you go the group does lose a little bit of momentum and drive on the songs which leads to my attention being easily diverted away from the music. Despite this, there are some fantastic instrumental performances on here and I think Cornell's voice is brilliant the whole way through. Overall, a great album that has no truly weak songs and it is packed full of energy making it so easy to enjoy.

A phenomenal album. A masterclass from each band member - aging like a fine wine and has gradually overtaken Superunknown as my #1 Soundgarden LP.

I like this one, sometimes more tha Superunknown 'cause more nervous and harsh, like the voice of Cornell on this.Less "organic" than Superunknown but very good songs anyway, hypnotic and hard.

So great. This and Temple of the Dog are probably the best vocal performances on any albums ever. RIP

Soundgarden was a big part of the soundtrack to my high school years. Tracks 1-4 are the standout tracks, but there are other ones which are under appreciated like new damage and holy water. Slaves and Bulldozers may be the best vocal performance Chris ever gave. RIP Chris Cornell
