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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.8/100, a mean average of 78.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.7.

Well, man I've been too hard on this album. Me and the bairn have it on blasting and it sounds great. He's learned back in black on the guitar, the wine tastes great and Brian is from down the road... lovely.

La cellule se pose sur le vinyle, des sons de cloches sortent des enceintes, la guitare de Angus Young et là… 42 minutes de pur ACDC, un vrai bonheur.

Despite the change that they had to go through due to the tragedy that hit them, their comeback follows their tested and successful formula, no surprises there, you know what to expect. It is like "Highway to Hell", but even bigger, more anthemic(not sure if that's a word). Overall, 60/100.

A classic... that I don't enjoy anymore. Over-played, over-hyped, over-everything... This is my youth on road trips with my dad lol. People in Quebec especially love this... it's annoying.

Great album and the start of a completely different sound for AC/DC. Brian's best album with them. Everything after this was a slow decline. Good listen from start to finish with fantastic production. A must in any hard rock/metal collection. I'd still rate any Bon Scott album above this though.

Good album i like Highway To Hell more but this is the greatest comeback in Rock History. A new singer and a new formed band. Nevertheless great work.

Favorite Songs: Back in Black, Hells Bells, Let Me Put My Love Into You.
