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 7% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.3/100, a mean average of 75.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

Early AIC, full of classics. Doesn’t get enough love, at least here.

Some may not agree but this is the best Alice in chains album. While a couple songs arn't great, the other songs more than make up for it. This is a solid album and captures more of what the band really is to me in a time before they were just a little too polished

Not closely as good as Dirt, but carries a lot of the same qualities, that make this band so extremly special.

Great start, it loses quality after the first songs. It's a shame because there are three great songs at the beginning.

I personally prefer this to Dirt. It may not be too consistent, but it has some great grunge songs.
Best tracks: Man in the Box, It Ain't Like That, Bleed the Freak
Worst tracks: Sunshine, Real Thing

What Bork said. Inconsistent, but shows plenty of promise. I prefer Dirt and their s/t release.

Decent early AIC but it's not essential, fewer good songs than bad.

Maybe not a "great" album, but still a very good one. Sunshine is an awesome song.
