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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.8/100, a mean average of 80.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

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.

Landmark and Essential doesn't begin to describe the significance of this album , first there was nothing then there was this album then Heavy Rock existed - it's as simple as that

Jon Lord is absolutely shredding his Hammond B-3 and pushing his Marshall & Leslie cabinets to their limits with the volume dialled to 11 on every track. And think about this for a moment , the seminal track "Black Night" didn't even make this album later released as a single only. Ridiculous

If you haven't heard 'In Rock' your not a rock fan

A true masterpiece of raw , dirty and loud modern hard rock

A very easy rating of 100/100

Deep Purple in Rock is a seminal moment for rockers. I cant understand why all the lists are so picky about this superb, driving band. Two Weezer albums and Green Day way up the numbers above Deep Purple in Rock - What?

One of the heaviest albums of the 70s. Huge inspiration for heavy metal! Child in Time is a damn masterpiece.

One of my favorite all time albums! Recorded in a matter of days, it's raw like this record should be. A complete re-invention of the Purple sound that set the tone for legendary status.

There's immense talent on display here, and much of it is fun, but I can't help feeling like I'm listening to a good Zeppelin album with extra cheese.
