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 80.6/100, a mean average of 78.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.7.

Metal gold. A staple in any hard rock/metal collection. Title track & 'Hallowed be Thy Name' being two of the all time best ever metal tracks. A major step forward enlisting Bruce on vocals. The first of the golden Maiden era.

A controversial album with the title track. It is such a phenomenal song , actually a song about a scary dream and not Satan worship. This is the peak of 80’s metal. A great album

Bruce Dickinson was a perfect fit for Maiden in his debut. He along w/ Rob Halford are 2 of the greatest metal singers.

Really good metal, but to be honest, not as good as Powerslave.

There's a reason this album is considered a landmark and a standard in heavy metal music. I dunno if it's Maiden's best, but goddamn is it one of their most memorable offerings.
