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 83.7/100, a mean average of 82.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

Better than the debut, more consistent, but less standout tracks (my favorite is probably 1970). The last track is a waste of time but overall good record.

Hard and raw. Blueprint of what was to become punk rock. Iggy really is a legend. The last track is what stops me rating this higher. I didn't see the point. Tarnishes what is otherwise a true classic

It is definitely and influential album, but to me its more rocky and less punky than their debut

Never noticed but this time it became clear: James Brown is an obvious influence on the Stooges.
The energy you hear (and feel) is just there. There's no production that can get you this. The fire and craziness was recorded.
Iggy Pop acts like a shaman leading the band to and higher state through rage :D
Andy Mackay's sax just fits in. Like an extra bit of LSD.
Great record!

The chaos which this album descends into is the point of it. Forget about influential, this album is perfect in form and musicianship. And Iggy tops it with his performing. It is one of the best rock albums ever and it is criminally underrated in this site.
