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 86.7/100, a mean average of 85.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

This is very solid grunge album, probably the best in the genre - it has well-written hits packed with anger and punk energy and also intimate acoustic ballads about dark subjects. However it is not as good as it is important, it brought alternative music to the mainstream and ultimately ended the 80s era of synths and glam metal.
Yes, this is one of those albums that really is as good as everyone says it is.
Starts off extremely strong but it slowly tails off the further into the release you go. We open on what is one of the best 6 track runs of all time. It starts with the colossal Smells Like Teen Spirit which is still just as breath taking as it was when it first released. We then get In Bloom, Come As You Are, Breed, Lithium and then Polly with all of them being absolute classics for Nirvana. The energy is infectious right at the start and the listener becomes immediately captivated by the group as they explode onto the scene. Their personality and charisma shines through making it so easy to relate to the group and fall in love with the music. This outstanding quality doesn't show up again till right near the end where we get my favourite, as well as one of the greatest, Nirvana songs of all time Something In The Way. In between these two points is filler which could be removed as it drags the record down. None of these songs have the personality or infectiousness of the starting songs which makes me become disengaged with the music as I just wait for the conclusion. Overall, a hugely important album in the history of music which completely changed the direction of the 90's and is also a very fun record to listen to.
Really influential album. Crown jewel of the Grunge genre. That said, the song quality does dip quite often here.
STP, Soundgarden and Alice In Chains are WAY BETTER………..
The cover art symbolises greed. Even a baby is chasing the almighty dollar. Great, thought provoking cover.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Strong rock album with conceptually nuanced lyrics and great production. Solid band and well-composed tracklist.
