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 82.5/100, a mean average of 81.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.3.

I think this album is overrated on this sight, but it doesn't change the fact that this is the best debut album among grunge's big four. A lot of amazingly written tracks (Jeremy, Black) and also high-energy grunge anthems (Once, Even Flow).

I was never that into grunge but when I first heard this album I was blown away by the sound and songwriting.

An energetic album that is an essential part of the history of the 90's. The impact it had is mainly due to the initial 6 track run that opens this release. There isn't a single weak link in this run with it just going from banger to banger. The instrumentation is also very infectious with Even Flow and Jeremy captivating me right from the first listen. Furthermore, while his vocal seems to be a little divisive, I absolutely love Eddie Vedder's style of singing and it suits the crashing guitars and drums perfectly. It also does a great job of filling the listener with energy as the passion and spirit of the group is poured into the music on here making for a thrilling experience. Overall, this is the groups strongest record as it has their best songs and is a must listen for anyone who is into this genre of music.

30 years later....and I still enjoy revisiting this album. I was considering dropping it from my top 100, but after another listen I realise what a poor decision that would be. In fact I will lift it up a few more places. Like fine wine, it seems to get better with age.

A really cool album that was part of an alternative rock scene that defined the 1990s with this near the very top of that.

I don’t think I know how to objectively rate this album. It played an oversized role in my high school years, but I probably haven’t listened to it for 25 years until today.

What I believe is that Pearl Jam is well constructed as a band. They do really well blending two separate guitars to make a fantastically complex sound. I also believe that Pearl Jam excels at two different song styles: the slow, brooding build like “Release” and the faster, almost-out-of-control pace like in “Alive”.

Songs in the middle like Even Flow or Jeremy get lost in the shuffle for me.
