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 24% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.0/100, a mean average of 72.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.4.

"Thin Lizzy's last great record is Black Rose" is one of the most incorrect statements ever spoken. This album is top to bottom brilliant, and nearly perfect. Is it as good as Black Rose, Jailbreak, and Bad Reputation? I would put it as a near equal, and I guarantee that, over time, I will put it as equal. There isn't a bad track to be found on here, and every song has something that I absolutely love about it (even if the song, itself, isn't perfect).

This record has a phenomenal atmosphere that is particularly present on tracks like "The Sun Goes Down" and the title track, which are two EXTREMELY different songs. This album does have a bit of a noticeable metal influence, but it doesn't prevent it from having a classic Lizzy sound with some classic Lizzy riffs.

Best tracks: "Thunder and Lightning", "This is the One", "Someday She is Going to Hit Back", and "Heart Attack".
