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 Bayesian average rating of 77.5/100, a mean average of 76.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.0.

Very good debut! I don't understand why Steve didn't care for it; perhaps production quality.

Love the more aggressive sound they had with Di'anno, and wish they did a few more albums with him. However, I could hardly imagine him singing Powerslave. In the end, though, this punk-y sounding record is a blast.

I wonder if the album would be so primitive and raw, if Bruce was on vocals? The album that made me love heavy metal.

Ainda "sujo" com o punk o Iron Maiden mostra o peso de estreia de uma das maiores bandas de rock da Inglaterra/Mundo! Coletânea de hinos do metal!

Really good debut! Sounds like punkish metal, still not the famous Maiden sound
Top track: Prowler
High: Phantom of the Opera, Remember Tomorrow
Mid: Iron Maiden, Transylvania, Charlotte the Harlot, Sanctuary, Running Free

This album is awesome. Although I like the music they put out with Bruce more, Paul is probably the better singer of the two. There's a bit more of a classic rock feel on this album than on their other albums (Sanctuary, Running Free). The best song on this album is hands down Phantom of the Opera, which is up there with Hallowed be thy Name as the best Iron Maiden song.
