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 78.3/100, a mean average of 76.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.7.

This has always been and always be Metallica’s Magnum Opus and the gold standard in which Metallica albums will always be compared to.

Yes, it is very polished sounding, yes it was all over radio and MTV, yes it sold millions of copies and yes the album made Metallica into a massive mainstream juggernaut…but that doesn’t make the album any less amazing than it already is.

This was Metallica at the peak of their powers and this album should at least be ranked #1 in their overall discography and in the Top 100 Albums Of All Time on this site.

Not a bad album, but there are couple of filler tracks and it lacks the lyricism and energy from their previous records.

There are some real highlights on this album (Enter Sandman, Sad But True, Nothing Else Matters), but as an album I didn't like it. Too long and too many similar tracks. I actually found it quite boring to listen to.

a perfect radio-metal album. It does have a host of flaws though

I was never sure if I liked Metallica but I like Diamond Head so thought I would give this, their most accessible offering a go. I like it, great riffery and guitar soloing in parts. 'Wherever I Roam' is a personal favourite with its Eastern influenced opening, heavy riff and blistering guitar soloing. I don't think I will head further into the Metallica catalogue as I am not a lover of all out thrash metal which I understand is what their core output has been. Good on Bill Bailey getting Enter Sandman an airing on Strictly!
