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 83.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

Kurt hated just how commercially successful Nevermind was and tried to deter the new fans that were making them so adored by releasing In Utero. They failed, this album went harder than before but cemented their place amongst the rock greats with a record that stands as one of the defining parts of what makes Kurt so brilliant.

Shows Nirvana genuinly evolving away from the confiness of Nevermind. If Nirvana had a masterpiece this is it.

Depressive "music" devoid of any soul. The only good song is a rip-off from Melvins.

The first time I listened to this record, I was disappointed because it wasn’t as polished and poppy as Nevermind. Years after radio overexposure ruined Nevermind, I see this record as the more authentic Nirvana album. Milk It is among the band’s top two or three songs, in my opinion. Raw, brooding, full of ennui.

Two more notes. Thinking back to how Cobain was referenced as the voice of a generation, and given that Cobain’s lyrical style was choppy and stilted wordplay, what does that say about our generation?

Also, when Kurt says “self appointed judges judge more than they have sold” in Serve The Servants, is it possible that he was foreshadowing the Internet, specifically social media? No wonder he checked out.

It's not up to Nevermind's standard but it's still great. All Apologies is probably my favourite Nirvana song. Pennyroyal Tea, Heart Shaped Box and Rape Me are also great. Some tracks don't really connect with me, like Radio Friendly Unit Shifter and Frances Farmer. It's such a shame this was their last album, there was still so much to come from them.

It isn't Nevermind in popularity, but you could make the case that this is the more complete Nirvana album.

A ver, no me malinterpreten. Es un 80 al fin y al cabo. No es para nada un mal album. De hecho, puedo incluso comprender a quienes señalan que es mejor que Nevermind. Es un album un pelo más experimental que Nevermind, y solo lo he escuchado completo una vez, así que mi opinión tal vez mejore con el tiempo. Hay canciones muy disfrutables, como mi favorita que es Serve the Servants, y también hay otras muy buenas como Heart-Shaped Box, All Apologies, Dumb y Rape Me, hasta Pennyroyal Tea me agradó. La cosa es que hay otras que considero que las disfruté poco, y no son para mi gusto, como Tourette's o Radio Friendly Unit Shifter, qué sé yo, el Kurt loco no es para todos supongo. En fin, es un album que recordaré mucho, y volveré a escuchar.

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
