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)

Very angry and frantic
This album is extremely rude on the ears. Black Flag sounds like they weigh about ten tons here, moving glacially from heavy riff to ham-handed drum pattern to drawn-out bass drones. Starts out pretty interesting but gets a little humdrum by the end.
The first side is brilliant but I'm not mad on the sludge metal on the second side. The second side should've been released an EP.
Favourite tracks: My War, Beat My Head Against The Wall
To me, My War is the story of side 2 of Damaged taken to its final bleak conclusion. Not a pretty picture I'm afraid. A lot harder to route for our protagonist at this point. From a completely musical point of view, Damaged is a far more varied and thus to me more interesting. Quite unique to see such breadth on a hardcore album. But I nitpick, I love My War too.

This is so sadly underrated....

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
