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 80.8/100, a mean average of 79.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.0.

The opening of this album, namely the first two songs plus Tornado of Souls, is legendary, but I appreciated "Peace Sells" more due to its consistency.

Easily Megadeth's best album. Great from start to finish (maybe with the exception of 'Five Magics'). A solid staple in the classic trash metal cannon.

A prime example of thrash metal. The debut for the classic Megadeth lineup.

Well, this sort of metal is not my usual thing. I must say - I'm surprised that I really enjoyed this album. While Dawn Patrol is complete filler, and Poison Was the Cure is "meh", the rest makes for a nearly top notch album. The title track, Lucretia, and Hangar 18 are outstanding, and Holy Wars is better than outstanding. Here's the thing about this album - it's not just pointless thrashing, because it has great guitar riffs/melodies intertwined with fantastic rhythms (look at Hangar 18..). Yes, the vocals aren't amazing, but it's a lot better than that ridiculous Pantera crap.

Overall, you do have to be in the mood for the album to really get into it, because it very rarely lets up, but, if you're going in expecting a good time, it promptly delivers.

Best track - Holy Wars... The Punishment Due
