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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.1/100, a mean average of 76.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.7.

There's an obviously cobbled together feel about this album, but when so much of Jello Biafra's wit and social commentary couldn't find a place on their regular releases, it easily justifies itself as an even wilder and more eclectic ride for a band who were never too fond of convention.

Highlights include Night of the Living Rednecks and Saturday Night Holocaust, of which the names along ought to give you a rough idea of the collision of pop culture and political satire that you're in for.

Even though it's a compilation only 'Uber Alles' & 'Holiday in Cambodia' were on other studio albums, so unless you were a great fan who had all the singles, you wouldn't have had what's on offer here. I've never got sick of this and still enjoy it every time I hear it. High energy, intellectually thought provoking & brilliantly piss taking. Well worthy to have in any collection

'Pull My Strings' makes the whole thing worth while.
