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 85.8/100, a mean average of 84.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

A timeless classic with an abundance of fantastic hits. Hugely influential and set up 1990s brit-pop perfectly.

What a great album this is, belongs to the canon of British Rock. so very Brit stuff. It has its antecedents in Kinks, Beatles, Yardbirds, and Clash but it does not fail to be original in compositions and tones. Don't stop owes very much to #Tomorrow Never Knows". It is amazing how advanced that song was in 1966! This is an essential album.

First time listening to this album. Very enjoyable. The songs have a bouncy quality that lend themselves to either a deep intentional listen or a fun background presence.

The band makes extremely good use of musical dynamics…for a band that knows how to rip, they show admirable restraint when a quieter sound will benefit the song.

While there aren’t any real duds on the album, the final three songs are a force. Great ending to a really strong debut record.

One of the finest debut albums of all time. The roses could and should have been huge but this really was a one hit wonder. Such a waste. Having said that, what a glorious one hit wonder it was

An incredible debut album. Fools Gold and Elephant Stone aren't listed on this version of the album (must have been on the re-release), but they add to an already very strong tracklist. On this tracklist, my highlights are Waterfall, This Is The One and She Bangs The Drums. Just a shame that in my opinion this album was a bit of a one-hit wonder, as Second Coming was a disappointment.

This is a rare case where the second half of an album outshines the first half.

Plano. No me aporta gran cosa. Nada que resaltar.
La última parte mejora un poco con I Am the resurrection
