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 79.4/100, a mean average of 78.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.6.

This album makes me wanna play guitar.. Hard-hitting with great melodies and riffs. Quite classic
Heavy as lead metal album, full on from start to finish. Love the sleeve art more than the music but I do enjoy it if I’m the right mood. Feels like it’s trying too hard at times.
How possible so low ranked? i believe is one of the top 2 or 3 heavy metal albums ever; most of all, possibly the most "pure" heavy metal album ever.
Yes, it is pure camp.
Yes, it is over the top and silly.
Yes, it is non stop action man music.
Yes, the drums are pure pumping adrenaline.
Yes, guitar duo and their sollos are face melting.
Yes, Rob Hallford is most entertaining singer ever.
Yes, Painkiller cannot be stoped,
I might choose this number one for 1990 Halford is back at full form and song writing and guitar riffs and solos are the best since Screaming for vengeance this is in my top 5 for Judas Priest albums
What it lacks in variety, Painkiller just makes up for in solidity. All of the tracks thrash even if they are similar.
El disco. Podríamos terminar aquí el comentario sobre 'Painkiller', pues cuando la perfección derriba la puerta de tal manera el silencio es suficiente para mostrar admiración y respeto. Judas Priest conquistaron de nuevo al mundo metálico después de un par de discos por debajo del nivel habitual de los británicos. Por suerte, para dar la bienvenida a la nueva década, Judas Priest parían un clásico inmortal, de esos que siguen vigentes a día de hoy y que seguirán perdurando dentro de cincuenta años como joyas perennes del Metal. Musicalmente, nos encontramos con un disco de puro Heavy Metal pero de un espíritu cargado del Thrash Metal que se estilaba por la época. Judas Priest se metieron en el barro para acallar todas las bocas que criticaban al grupo por su giro comercial a mediados de los 80. 'Painkiller' es un puñetazo a las costillas que te deja sin aire.
Produced by Chris Tsangarides.
Very good and compact and nice sounding heavy metal album.
Heavy metal wasn't strong in the 90's.
But then comes this
What a comeback this is after two mediocre releases. One of their best albums.
