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 85.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

This record is packed full of potential but I don't think it is realised on this release. You can clearly see the talent of each member and I would have loved to be able to experience this record when it first came out to be able to see them grow from this album onwards. The obvious signs they are going to do great things arrive in the first 4 tracks in the form of Good Times Bad Times, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You and Dazed And Confused. All three songs are absolute classics and deserve all the praise they receive. The rest of the release I find to be decent but nothing that would bring me back to experience it again. A few of the songs I would even argue are skippable and feel insignificant to the music on here. Overall, this is the starting point for one of the greatest bands of all time and so is a must listen even though I do think it gets slightly over rated.

An awesome, massive sounding rock and roll record with serious punch with band members that are clearly unbelievably skilled.

This is great start of the great band. Dazed and Confused is incredibly influential for heavy metal.

For some reason I never got in to this album as much as all of their albums from Led Zep II to Physical Graffiti. For me the best was still to come. But no one can deny there's some incredible guitar riffs. My highlights are Good Times Bad Times and How Many More Times.

One of the best debut albums in rock history, that would help fuel a kickstart to heavy metal and psychedelic rock. Truly a sound no one could replicate that would translate into to early 70s. Screw you Rolling Stones for all the hate you put on this album!

For me, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You is such a tease for LZ II, and one of the band's best tracks in their discography.
