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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.7/100, a mean average of 77.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

What's there to say about this record - it's loose, it's loud, it's nasty, it's intense, and most of all - it's rock and roll. Only 2 or 3 tracks I wouldn't call Motorhead classics, and even then they're still pretty good.

The title track makes this album awesome! Everything else is rock-solid, not an inch of filler.

Classic album with some great songs especially the title track, We Are The Road Crew & The Chase Is Better Than The Catch. This album was a big influence on thrash and hardcore bands shortly after.

Most predictable guitar solos ever, but they sure can play fast - ‘cause music is a sport right?

El perfecto equilibrio entre el Heavy Metal más primitivo y crudo y la actitud punk que siempre caracterizó a Lemmy Kilmister. El año 1980 vio nacer una inmensa cantidad de obras maestras, y el carismático cantante y bajista no podía quedarse fuera de lo que se estaba cociendo en la Gran Bretaña de la época. Son Motörhead, por tanto, fundamentales para entender el desarrollo de la NWOBHM. Encontramos aquí un disco rápido y directo, que no se pierde entre florituras, puro estilo Motörhead, con una presencia enorme del bajo y unos solos de guitarra de la vieja escuela por parte de Eddie Clarke con más feeling que técnica, pero sorprendentes. Es de las pocas portadas que recuerdo donde salgan los miembros del grupo y sean realmente buenas, con esa pose chulesca que queda bien demostrada cuando el disco empieza a sonar y llega el primer disparo en forma de clásico.

I never listened to this album before. Partly because I was afraid it couldn't meet the level of awesomeness of its title track, but also because I expected that every song would sound alike. The latter might be partly true but this album really is a real solid piece of awesomeness.
