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 86.4/100, a mean average of 85.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.0.

While most of the songs here have been lifted from other musicians, Led Zep truly makes them their own. Iconic and stunning record.

None of my all-time favorite Zeppelin tracks, but amazingly high level for a debut.

Gran carta de presentación de Led Zeppelin. Queda claro inmediatamente el virtuosismo de los 4 músicos con “good times bad times”. “Baby, in goma llave you” es una de las baladas más desgarradoras en la historia del rock, y también está la psicodelia de “Dazed & Confused”, el country folk de “Your time is fin a come” y el Hard rock de “comunicación break down”. Cierra un jazz rock que se convierte en Hard rock. Discazo de Zeppelin, en uno de los mejores debuts de una banda de rock

88/100.

Best songs: Good Times Bad Times, Dazed and Confused, Your Time Is Gonna Come, Communication Breakdown
Worst songs: You Shook Me, I Can't Quit You Baby, How Many More Times

One of the greatest debuts ever released! This was the first of a streak of groundbreaking albums Zeppelin would release throughout the first half of the seventies. Hard to believe that it got better than this, but it did!

Outstanding album. Took a bit to warm up to at first as I had 3 other Zep albums before getting this so some of the slower tracks didn't gel well with me. Now I love it. Up there with the best of there other albums
