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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.0/100, a mean average of 76.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.7.

Gets points for not sounding like 1973 at all.

Totally infectious rock and roll despite it’s perverseness. This is a hugely influential album for NYC, Glam Rock, Punk Rock and Hair Metal but most people have never heard it.

I had to check this out understanding this group is a major influence on many groups including Morrissey who was once the president of the NYD's Fan Club

And it was everything I anticipated - wild , sleazy , androgynous and not PC

I couldn't help but be reminded of The Replacements track "Johnny's Gonna Die" which refers to Johnny Thunders & sadly Westerberg was right on the money

The New York Dolls' first LP is a confident sounding release chock full of good rockin' catchy tunes. The band plays with a sense of wild abandon that is infectious.

Raw, nasty and in-your-face....incredibly far ahead of it's time for 1973.

A perennial favourite for me, so much energy and power pulsing through every song.
