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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.5/100, a mean average of 76.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

This isn't the original album cover, not sure why it was changed. I'm sure the original album cover was on BEA previously. This album holds a special place in my heart. I see like yesterday, a School mate lowering the needle onto the vinyl, grabbing a cricket bat and throwing himself around his parents front room, strumming cords on that bat in exact time. I had at that time, no idea why he put his School tie around his forehead or why he played most of the cords on his knees! It was only when I bought the album myself, several years later, that things clicked. An excellent rock album which I put among their top three.

Very strong release with the title track, Overdose, Hell Ain’t a Bad Place To Be and A Whole Lotta Rosie I prefer Dirty Deeds but still vintage AC/DC.

I see the track listing has been corrected to reflect the original vinyl album, Problem Child removed and Crapsody in Blue added. I have the original vinyl LP, the cover is different.

I clicked b/c I didn't recognize the album cover. I swear the real album cover was used on here b4 and probably the real track listing too. Go to discogs and look at the track listing. The first vinyl version I looked at was the one I know and the one I think most ppl know. I never heard of any different international version before today and I had these songs so long that I don't even know when I first got them any more. I think someone edited this album just to be a troll. Whoever is more familiar with this version, say something.

EDIT: oh and also I'm not Australian so I should have known any international version instead of the real one.

This is a fantastic rock and roll album and it really stunned me with the quality on first listen. The guitar work is incredible and the riffs along with the solos are genius and stunning. The drumming is relentless and makes the music overflow with energy when paired with the guitar. Then there is the choruses which get stuck in your brain and are so enjoyable to just nod your head along to them. This is aided by what I think makes this album such a joy to experience which is the vocal. Its shrill and piercing nature completely dominates the album and is one of my favourite vocals of all time. The performances on the whole on this album are brilliant and really shocked me. However, I do think Overdose is a bit weaker than the rest of the tracks and that does take up quite a bit of time in the record. Overall, an energetic riot of an album that is pure rock and roll and deserves to be enjoyed and be given a lot more credit than it currently gets.

Bon Scott era AC/DC in my opinion epitomizes the ultimate rock and roll band. Title track being one of the greatest ever rock songs. Fine mix of rock, blues and boogie and brilliant from start to finish. Interesting that the repressing of this album took 'Crabsody in Blue' out and replaced it with 'Problem Child', which was originally on 'Dirty Deeds'.

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.
