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 84.4/100, a mean average of 83.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

I don't know. I've tried to listen to this album many times and it just doesn't work for me. There are some good songs, but it just isn't my style of music

A contradict record to Nevermind result in a more raw and punky successor. Like a snake shred its skin and reveals its insides.

The same issue I have with their other albums: some excellent tracks (Heart Shaped Box, Pennyroyal Tea, Rape me) and some I simply don't get (Very ape, Tourette's, Radio Friendly Unit Shifter).

My favorite Nirvana album. Best music, best lyrics, best artwork. A bold move after the slick production of Nevermind. Favorite track: Milk it

Good follow up to 'Nevermind'. A lot more raw noise. Less commercial feel about it. Overall a better album

My personal favorite album of all time.

The raw angst on this album is unlike any other. It is a look inside Kurt’s mind through 12 songs and 41 minutes of pure back-and-forth loud guitar, disturbing images and lyrics, and utter trouble. This was his suicide letter and his final goodbye.

Scentless apprentice features more emotion than nearly anything I have ever heard. Milk It and Radio Friendly Unit Shifter continue the same tense feeling, with Tourette’s ultimately ending it before All Apologies comes to restore a depressing, beautiful acoustic with lyrics that make you sit somberly.

RIP to the greatest to ever do it. Not many individuals can live to make such an impact on the world in such a small amount of time, and I think that is what people overlook with Kurt and Nirvana. It is not a statement, it is a 100% true fact.

On another note, and almost off-topic, our world has not seen that since then, and this album, in my opinion, is the last great grunge rock album. That opinion will never change. Although there are many great musicians out there, we will never see another Nirvana, nor an In Utero. This album truly was one of a kind.

10/10
