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 83.6/100, a mean average of 82.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

The influence of the record is apparent every time you listen to this release with their style of music being very ahead of its time. This makes it an extremely significant album in the history of music and makes it a must listen for any fan of music. The highlight is the instrumental work, which peaks on Dirt in my opinion, and Iggy Pop's vocal whose more rough approach makes for a unique experience. The album does sound raw and has flaws in it but I think for some fans that only adds to the appeal of the music. Overall, this is a disjointed album at times but it is also very unique and is packed full of character and power.
Apart from L.A. Blues this is a classic. I find it hard to see this as an influence on punk apart from attitude. It is however, a fabulous rock album and would rank as good as the debut if not for the last track. Essential listening
Simply great !!
Pedrada do caralho!! Mto foda!
Not a huge fan
While no album is perfect, this is as close as it gets.
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
3 Girls, 1 Whip
It is definitely and influential album, but to me its more rocky and less punky than their debut
