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 78.6/100, a mean average of 76.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.7.

Slayer are unique. They have a sound unlike that of any other band. They are the definitive kings of thrash metal. 'Angel of Death' being in the top ten greatest metal songs of all time. This is the album which defined them. Very good but personally I prefer 'South of Heaven'.

This is an essential album for its genre (by the way, this, Peace Sells and Master of Puppets all came out in 1986, what a year that was!). My complaint would be that it is way too fast and most of the tracks don't stick with you.

Bought Reign the day it came out after class in 10th grade. There was lots of talk about this one amongst us metal kids. The thing is though now, Hell Awaits seems to have aged better and it has to do with old style production Metoyer and Slagel did with the album. Reign In Blood kind of has a nostalgia value to it, but we really played the shit out of this one 34 yrs ago every single day and we had the cassettes of this one where the whole recording was on both sides of the tape. Good memories.

Here's the thing about this record - it's not about the songs, but the sound. Every single track sounds alike (and I don't mean just in general mood - I am an ACDC fan, after all - but the tracks are so goddamn fast that I can't distinguish any riffs/melodies from the craziness), but, as I said, it's not about the songs, but the sound.

This entire record sounds like nothing I've ever heard (and probably will ever hear). Almost every track is at breakneck speed, and sounds like it emerged straight from the pits of hell. This means that it works for very particular moods, but isn't something to really sit down and listen to.

For its sound, it enjoyable, but there are only two songs I really care for, and those are the two most obvious choices of Angel of Death and Raining Blood. They're characterized by being actual good songs over the good sound.

Now, look - I'm not saying the other songs are bad, but this is far from what I listen to everyday, so I'll stick with the highlights.

Overall, this record isn't for everyone, but if you want something loud, fast, and brutal, then this is for you.

Angel Of Death and Raining Blood make this album awesome. In between, the drums make things interesting enough that the songs are good.

A solid album to put on in the background if you have to work hard and kick ass but I don't find hell enjoyable

It's good but a bit short and repetitive. Not all the tracks are very interesting.

Slayers seminal 'Rein In Blood' is an album all music fan's need too hear before they die

Widely regarded as a before and after thrash metal album the speed and technical excellence of the musicianship is quite simply breathtaking . Take particular note of the ground breaking drum sections and consider this - some of those drum breaks we take for granted now were recorded for the very first time on this release

'Rein In Blood' is thrash metals equivalence of walking on the moon

Mighty
