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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.1/100, a mean average of 74.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.5.

Another awesome SOAD work here. I didn't like it as well as Tox or Hypnotize, but still really enjoyed it. Such a unique, heavey, and all around awesome sound. Favorite track was probably Old School Hollywood. Just had some charm about it.

Very solid album top to bottom. Some lyrics are forgettable though.

Similarly to Hypnotize, I love how Tankien uses his voice. Combined with Malakian's great songwriting, this album is everything you want from System of a Down. B.Y.O.B. stands strong as one of their best, as does Violent Pornography. There are some filler tracks, but no tracks that I skip on every listen. As a whole it is a good listen.

This is my favourite System of a Down album. It is their most consistent. There's not a single song on this album that I would skip, I love all of them. Every song is fantastic. Malakian took on a more prominent writing role with Mezmerize, and personally I prefer his writing style. It's highly unique and creative. The music is powerful in many ways and executed fluidly and brilliantly.

Malakian and Tankien's vocals compliment each other perfectly to create a beautiful and mad noise. Screams and harmonies are the strengths here. System of a Down show their technical prowess and the result is awesome. I love listening to this album, and it's one of the few that I can listen to start to finish and enjoy every single song.

It might not be the best S.O.A.D album but it's still up there.

Very good album from SOAD. I like its variety, from hard pieces to ballads, passing through songs like Radio-Video. Nice work.

A much more conventional sounding album than SOAD's previous work, but it works well. Full of catchy, instantly memorable songs. My personal favourites are Radio/Video, Old School Hollywood and Violent Pornography. A high point in a largely dismal decade.

A decent album, but some of it doesn't work very well (Old School Hollywood, I'm looking at you). The good stuff is really good though.

I think this album is Soad's masterpiece. There's not one song I do not like.
