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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.9/100, a mean average of 78.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

Love the production here. Fits these songs so well. Very heavy, very tight.

At this point, my favorite from Anthrax. Currently not even in the top 40 of 1987, what a travesty.

A classic thrash album. Joey has got an immense vocal range. Anthrax are a little more punky than the other bands in the big 4. I am the Law is an awesome song.

One of the classic albums of the thrash era. Among the living, is Anthrax's crowning moment. The best of the band's line up's deliver a rollicking record full of great metal anthems such as, I am the law, Indians, and, caught in a mosh. Good fun.

Best Anthrax album. A thrash metal masterpiece. That's right. I said it. Anthrax made a masterpiece. Joey is probably the best vocalist in all of thrash metal. I don't say that lightly either. Some of the best metal riffs I've ever heard. Indians is probably in my top 5 thrash songs ever.
