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 78.0/100, a mean average of 77.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

IMHO one of those albums that defines a whole genre, in this case punk blues. Clearly owing a lot to the Cramps but taking a high velocity brand of blues and punk to add to the mix, add great vocals from Jeffrey Lee Pierce and an excellent choice of songs - especially old blues numbers and you have a classic album.

Good idea, but I found the mixing a bit thin. Maybe the CD version I've listened to needs to be remastered.

This album was my introduction to The Gun Club and remains my favourite GC album ahead of Miami . Dripping with classic track after classic track the real hero here are Jeffery Lee Pierces vocals . This album sits completely safe within my all time list

This is a band and album I really would love to love, but it just isn't happening. Can't put my finger on the why.

I can see the influence this had on The White Stripes for sure, but this is better by so many leagues.

I discovered this album much later that I should have. This is the greatest rock album of the 80s and does not get nearly enough recognition.

what a great record ! It sounds like a 2000's post punk revival album, I think this is what king of leons are trying to sound like.
