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 Bayesian average rating of 80.6/100, a mean average of 80.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

Child In Time is an absolute masterpiece with the guitar work on there being amongst some of the greatest ever. The solos we are treated to on that song are phenomenal and every time I hear them I sit back and just marvel at how stunning this track is. The rest of the album is pretty consistent with most of the other songs being pretty decent but I don't think they match up to Child In Time. This record is very important in the history of music as well and you can see how great the group would be but I do think they make better records in the future. Overall, a significant album that is consistently good the whole way through and is full of great instrumental performances.

Otra gran obra maestra de los purple. Un disco que todo amante del rock debería tener. Está a la altura de los grandes.
Child in time es impresionante.

Its influence and historical significance are enormous, but it isn't an album I find myself coming back to it.

Machine Head gets all the praise. This album has a classic sound and outstanding songwriting.

In Rock is every bit as important as the first two Zep albums or the first two Sabbath albums; the two bands they get compared to. It does things that those albums just don’t, mostly because they don’t have a Jon Lord playing keys.

If you pick up this album, the 25th anniversary edition is the only way to go. It includes the restored intro to Speed King, Black Night, and Cry Free. Cry Free might be the earliest example of speed or thrash metal I’ve heard outside of Communication Breakdown.
