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 77.8/100, a mean average of 76.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

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.

I don't get it, why is ridiculously fast a good thing? Exhausting.

I guess this is the beginning of a subgenre that I don’t really care for: thrash metal. Deserves some recognition, but the two albums that came after this one are clearly of more importance.

Metallica 1983’s 'Kill ‘Em All' is as remarkable debut album there has ever been and is essential listening for any music fan

It takes as few listens to fully embrace the simplicity of the speed, sheer malice, and seemingly effortless technical prowess each member of the band displays throughout each of the ten tracks here. The rawness of the music and lyrics combined with the musical deftness of its members make this one hell of an album

Despite this record’s age and its supposed flaws, it is still brimming with vitality and hasn’t lost a fraction of it’s thumping, eardrum-lacerating edge

Visceral
