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 87.3/100, a mean average of 86.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.0.

this album has some classic songs on it, the second installment in a winning streak for the band that lasted until 1975

LZ are way too heavy for my taste. I did like 2 of the songs:
whole lotta love, and heartbreaker. But I consider the rest
of the album to be filler.

"Toc, Toc: Permiso, somos Led Zeppelin".
Esta historia se resume así: 1963- hasta Septiembre 1969 (The beatles) Octubre 1969 (Led Zeppelin)!!!

Este es mi tercer disco favorito en la historia del rock, a veces el primero, a veces el segundo (los otros dos son Dark side y Ruber soul...) pero qué discazo se manda Zeppelin. Una potencia y fuerza, que abbey road queda como bebé de pecho (en el sentido heavy del disco) un mes después de los beatles habernos regalado esa joya maestra.
Zeppelin 2: Bombazos de rock acompañados de bajos y baterias progresivas, qué mezcla. La gracia de éste disco es que para mi acá led zeppelin muestra su carta de presentación. The lemon song con el solo de John Paul Jones, Moby Dick con el solo de John Bonham, y obviamente Page en cada punteo de cada tema y Plant en cada frase de toda canción. Heartbreaker y Whole Lotta Love son dos bombazos para la época, Thank you la pausa necesaria y realmente conmovedora, Living Loving Maid y Ramble On dos obras maetsras bellas en composición. Para el final, el blues de Bring it on home, en donde uno piensa: qué gran final de disco con un tema mas parejo y con menos pirotecnia, pero casi a los dos minutos: perdón pero somos led zeppelin no Willie Dixon!!! Gran final de disco, para dejarnos una de las piezas claves en la hiostoria del rock. Gracias al rock!!! Gracias a Zeppelin!!!

83/100.

Best songs: Whole Lotta Love, Heartbreaker, Ramble On
Worst song: Bring It On Home

Not quite as good as their debut in my opinion, but still some of their best classics on here!

With Led Zep, it's hard to pick a favorite album. Seems to go in cycles. This was once my fave due to the overall rock nature of it. Now I prefer others but that doesn't lessen how great this album is
