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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 85.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 86.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

It’s absolutely great, don’t get me wrong. But does it really count as an album, with no original tracks ? And should it be rated that high ?

Nirvana is an excellent band from the 90s. This electro rage has made them famous all over the world. They are a pillar of grunge and alternative rock. Their song is energetic and fantastic. But their first 2 albums are a little in the process of becoming obsolete, indeed some of their music ages pretty badly with time. "MTV Unplugged In New York" is their album that has aged the least. This is a live album where Kurt Cobain and his two acolytes do covers of songs ("The Man Who Sold the World") and play their best songs. This live-album is recorded with acoustic instruments at the MTV in New York. It shows a certain maturity of the band.

9/10

Bittersweet listen, no doubt about it. But it's a great performance by a great band.

This is one of the most well regarded live albums for a reason. Nirvana not only managed to make some of the best albums in the 90's, but arguably, one of the best live albums of all time. The whole thing feels laid back, yet right at home with what Nirvana usually sounds like. I get chills from this album, being so passionate and emotional, with great production and overall fantastic atmosphere. The cover's are among the best songs on this album, and the renditions of all their original's are pretty much on par with the studio versions. I would say by quite a bit the best version of "About a Girl" is on this album. Not to bash the original, but I feel like this one sounds less forced and awkward, and really natural. To this day, this album and Nirvana as a whole is among the most important bands of the 90's, and even of all time, and for good reasons.
