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 5% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 76.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

Arguably their best album and one of the greatest albums of all time. True fans will tell you this is their best album. The band was in top form on this album and the raw production can’t be topped. It almost feels like a live album you feel like your in the studio with the band. The title track and Whole Lotta Rosie are 2 of the greatest songs of all time but every single song is fantastic. Every single song has a kick ass riff and solo. The only problem is that the song problem child isn’t really on this album originally on the original Australian version of the album there was a song called crabsody in blue that was removed and replaced with problem child when the album was released internationally. I highly recommend listening to the original Australian version as that’s the true version that the band intended to be released. I don’t understand why the original Australian cover is listed but Crabsody In Blue isn’t. Once again this is one of the greatest albums ever with no bad songs every song is fantastic

Makes Back in Black seem irrelevant. Every track is 80+.

Perhaps AC/DC's greatest album. This version includes Problem Child (which I will claim until the day I die fits much better on Dirty Deeds), but what the hell it's still a great track.

AC/DC at the peak of their game. Angus' Solos and riffs are just incredible, and Bon Scott proves himself as one of the greatest vocalists of all time.

One of the greatest albums of all time. This album changed the way music would be made forever. This is also their best album and everybody is playing top notch. The only thing miss is the song crabsody in blue which was only on the original Australian version of the album. It was replaced with problem child from dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.

A much repeated and at this point annoying remark AC/DC often get is their lack of innovation. This is absolutely ridiculous. As if innovation is the only way to make good music. No, it's mostly being fucking awesome when making the music you mostly make and that's basically AC/DC and this album in a nutshell. No, this album or this band hasn't broken any new ground in the music world, but why would you want to if you're already the baddest boys in town?

Bon Scott and crew have found the perfect way to blow our ears off with amazing headbanging songs, and they will keep reminding you for about 40 minutes.

Favorite: Problem Child, Whole Lotta Rosie, Go Down, Let There Be Rock, Overdose

Least Favorite: /

The first great AC/DC album. Go down, whole lotta Rosie, hell ain't a bad place to be, and the title track. Great rock'n'roll music, disposable but emmense fun.
