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 77.9/100, a mean average of 76.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

Amazing for a debut, but Metallica would go on to produce much better material.

An essential album, this is where it all started, both for Metallica and for thrash metal. Their next albums showed that there was room for improvement, especially when it comes to lyrics, the vocals are also questionable. On the other hand, the speed, power, energy and aggression here are second to none(Ride the Lightning comes close though). Overall, 70/100.

One of the best debuts ever. 'Four Horsemen' being great trash prog. 'Jump in the Fire' a brilliant basic metal riff that you can't help but not play air guitar to. Newcomers who overtook all others in the shortest ever period and completely left them in there wake.

Solid debut for Metallica. They would do much better in the next 8 years, however.

The prototypical album of the genre. It's still shocking this came out in 1983 in the midst of the cheezy hair metal era. This album may not be Metallica's best, or a genuinely musical accomplishment in and of itself, but it certainly was a breath of fresh, harsh air when it came out.
