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 mean average rating of 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

As someone who tends not to like indie rock bands with weak singers and disturbed lyrics, you might expect me not to like this album. However, I can unreservedly say that the first 7 tracks here are simply incredible.
First: the songwriting is excellent. The poppy moments in 'in a jar' (after 'just can't stop') and 'the lung' are euphoric because they are just parts of a larger song that is decidedly not a 'pop' song. 'In a Jar' especially is beautifully written (great bass too).
Second: lyrics. While I tend not to be a big fan of Cobain-style grotesque lyrical imagery, for some reason it just works on this album. I think this connects with J Mascis' voice, which, while certainly not putting him on any 'best singers' lists, fits perfectly with the lyrics (he sounds exactly like the person who would write the lyrics, giving them authenticity where I often feel lyrics are made weird for the sake of them). Also, the couple snippets of voices from a mental hospital work excellently.
Third (and most important for me): that fucking guitar man. I remember reading something that really summed up what makes this album (and Dino Jr. generally) so unique: they're a lo-fi indie/alternative band with a certified guitar god playing for them. In perfect contrast to his restrained, low-key vocal delivery, Mascis' guitar roars with a fury like few before or since. Not only is his playing aggressive, it is very technically proficient as well. Every single solo on this album is worth hearing, with special kudos to the solo in Raisans, which will never cease to shred my mind with its opening notes.
Final conclusions: 'Lose' and 'Poledo' prevent this album from being a perfect 100, but coming as the last two songs, they don't take anything away from the flow if you end with 'In a Jar' (I also like the 'Show Me the Way' and especially the 'Just Like Heaven' covers on some releases). Everything before that is exquisite; and 'Sludgefeast' will forever be the best Black Sabbath song not by Black Sabbath. I recommend this album wholeheartedly to anyone with an even passing interest in alt/indie rock, as I love this album despite not liking much of the music it spawned.

Completely in love with their 93' and 94' albums when I found them. They are both on my top-50. Though I'm still the same person now as 93 I don't feel exactly the same year 2019. And now its memories of kids, great job and so on, instead of loneliness, desperation and lost love guiding my listening. Therefore I can't feel what I felt and perceive this album in the comparative way. It's impossible!

Now, this album gives me, almost nothing, when "Where you been" was so much "me", and still feels like that.

Great album by an influential band. I prefer the version with the "Just Like Heaven" cover at the end to bring me out of the "Poledo" lull.

One of the greatest guitar albums of all time. All the riffs and solos are timeless, and the drumming and basslines are on point too. They nailed everything on this album, and they were ahead of their time.
