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)

Good metal debut album, but not as good as Metallica would become.
Raw as all hell 🤘
This album is incredibly strong for a debut. Lyrics aren't as great as on later records, but it is compensated with raw, almost punk attitude of this album. On songs like The Four Horsemen, Jump In The Fire, Seek & Destroy you can easily see their potential.
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.
Greatest debut thrash metal album. My favorite Metallica release.
A timeless album
Solid debut for Metallica. They would do much better in the next 8 years, however.
IMO, the greatest debut album ever made.
