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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 75.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

Extremely consistent, wonderfully raw and unpolished. A huge presentation for a sole artist to make such an album all by himself.

Solid debut for the Foos, more of a solo album since Dave Grohl plays everything. There would be better Foo Fighters albums after this.

This Is a Call kicks the album off well enough but it's all downhill from there. The other issued track, Big Me, gained popularity due to having "funny" music video, not because it's a great or even good song. Very reminiscent of how Blink 182 were able to peddle their awful music while MTV was still relevant. The silver lining here is that, unlike Blink, Foo Fighters went on to make some very worthwhile tracks like Evermore and One by One.

This album was one of the rare cases when on first listen i liked almost every if not every song on there! It's super fun and Dave Grohl sings and plays everything by himself i mean come on isn't that something !? 9.5/10

Not the best Foo album, the first 5 tracks are good but it tails off after that, there's enough here for an occasional relisten.

Dave Grohl flexes his musical muscles on this album by playing literally everything. He is a great musician and his songwriting skills are already adept on his solo debut. This album is hard, but not what you'd expect from the former drummer of Nirvana. It is a pleasant surprise as Grohl develops his unique musical identity. The first half of the album is very good, especially the first 3 tracks still holding up as some of the best Grohl has ever written. The last half becomes a bit boring but still with worthwhile songs.

of course it's not the best album of the Foo Fighters
Only the first few songs are memorable.

But the sheer talent of the man, doing it all on his own for the first time is astonishing.

I like the melodies and riffs in these songs, but the songs themselves are very repetitive. Sometimes it feels like I'm hearing the same thing for five minutes.
