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 13% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 75.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.3.

I never understood why this album is rated so low when it has the highest average track rating of all the JP records.

From alvinrowab 03/12/2018 09:26
El Heavy Metal estaría cojo sin la aportación de Judas Priest, de eso no cabe duda. Pioneros en los 70, supieron extremar su propuesta y adaptarse a la nueva tendencia de la NWOBHM, acertada decisión. 'Defenders of the faith' es una perfecta continuación de 'Screaming for vengeance', con esas construcciones guitarreras cargadas de músculo y pasión. Encontramos a un Rob Halford en estado de gracia, y a la pareja formada por Glenn Tipton y KK Downing haciendo lo que mejor sabían hacer por la época, repartiendo riffs cargados de emoción y con un sentimiento desgarrador. De The Hellion pasamos a The Metallian, y la guerra estaba asegurado, con unos agudos que ponen la piel de gallina como la explosión final de "Jawbreaker" o la caña descontrolada de la inicial "Freewheel burning". Un clásico del Heavy clásico en toda regla.

I feel like this album is kind of overlooked. It's not one of their best albums but it's still a good album. Deserves more credit than it gets.

An amazing collection of some of the best metal songs of the 80s. How can you even compare to the screamo crap that is considered metal today?
