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 mean average rating of 76.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.6.

Even if he doesn't seem to realize it to this day, being thrown out of Metallica was undoubtedly the best thing that could have happened to Mustaine, not least because, well, it eventually paved the way for this - a distinctive, punkish, scorching and urgent beast of an album further elevated by prog-minded sequencing, an awesome crank-it-up-right-through-your-eardrums mixing and mastering job (which is also remarkably "wet" for a quality 80's thrash metal record) and some really memorable visual art direction. The A side is particularly impressive and shouldn't be missed by anyone remotely interested in the (sub)genre.

A fun album to listen to, but it doesn't really stick with you and can be a bit too thrash-y at times. The title track and Wake up Dead at least have some good melodies with a great beat to them, but most of the other songs, while fun for the moment, just don't offer much in terms of melody. I Ain't Superstitious and the Conjuring are two other tracks worth mentioning, as they are pretty good, but the rest is just early thrash (meaning that it's relatively tolerable).

Title track is best.

A more consistent album than Rust in Piece, but lacking the huge mountain peaks that that album has, though this album has some fantastic songs. A very important album for thrash metal and heavy metal music in general

Hands down my favorite Megadeth album. I love Dave's vocals on the record, and so many classic riffs. The Conjuring is my favorite.

More consistent than Rust in Peace, but Rust has more giant mega thrash monster songs

A great thrash album. Dave Mustaine can really write good riffs, and Chris Poland is a phenomenal guitar player. Just his tone is amazing. Though I prefer Rust in Peace, this one is essential too. Bad Omen is an underrated track.

A definitive classic in the realm of metal. I completely understand people not liking or getting the hype of this album. Maybe there isn't even a hype for it. But after enough research and obsession over this album for years, I'm thoroughly convinced that this is where thrash had it's first zenith. Dave Mustane is considered the father of trash, and essentially among the most important metal artists by many people in the business; even if they won't admit it, or subdue their enthusiasm. I personally think this blows away anything any of the other big four bands have done. That's because of the awesome jazz influence from the guitarist Chris Poland and drummer Gar Samuelson. If you're even a casual metal listener, this is a must listen just to say you've experienced it!
