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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.9/100, a mean average of 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.1.

Reverb-y thrash that dabbles in the blues. I'm split on this album; I enjoy the chunky, sludgier side of Megadeth's sound ("Wake Up Dead," "Peace Sells") but I don't like the cheap-sounding lead guitar tones or bluesy experiments ("I Ain't Superstitious"). For pure unbridled thrash, I definitely prefer Slayer and Metallica, but I do appreciate the well-rounded approach that this album attempts. I just wish the production were more focused.
This album is an enjoyable thrash metal record, but not on par with what Metallica was doing at this time and even earlier. I like the overall sound of this album and its dark themes, my favorite songs here are Peace Sells, Devil's Island, Good Mourning and My Last Words.
Thrash-metal you can dance to: the album. Its interesting comparing this album with Master of Puppets, the musiancianship here seems much more fluid while Master of Puppets sounds rigid but it also lacks the epic feel of Metallica or Sepultura.
My favourite album fo this genre, very good instrumental and vocals.
Pq demorei tanto pra ouvir esse delícia!
Far from my tastes, but it is a genre defining album and my favorite by them. Overall, 80/100.
It was purely original metal music when it first came out (still is). It took many listens back in the fall of '86. to fully accept it for what it was. Intrigueing metal style and superior songcraft. Mustaine's vision could only be realized with his own band. Glad he wasn't given a warning or 2nd chance by hetfield and lars.
Great album with some of the best tracks Megadeth produced. Few which are on the also ran category though being less memorable. Overall finding momentum which led to the next album (Rust in Peace') being a trash classic
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.
