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 79.2/100, a mean average of 78.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

Excellent live album. Better than any compilation as the tracks on here are all classic AC/DC. Don't like the cover image but the message is clear, 'if you want blood, you've got it'.

Very rare for a live album to be anywhere near as good as a studio album, but here it is. Not better, far superior! The greatest live album in history!

It's alright but not dynamic for a live album. Prefer the studio albums myself

This album is part of my personal album top 100 which you can check out with also additional comments.
I discovered "Whole Lotta Rosie" by AC/DC which entered the Belgian and Dutch hitparades in June 1978 and it really blew my mind. In fact it was a pity that I listened to the radio version because the guitar solo on the album version (Let There Be Rock) was much better (and longer) but I didn't know that at that time.
Anyhow I prefer their fantastic live album "If You Want Blood You've Got It" on which this song also appears. Of course like all real AC/DC lovers I prefer the Bon Scott period ;)
Other real standouts on this album are "Let There Be Rock" and "The Jack". AC/DC is still one of the bands I would have like to see live and I suppose it's too late now.

this album is part of my personal top 100: check it out!
Still mainly focused on listening to the radio instead of buying albums, I discovered "Whole Lotta Rosie" by AC/DC which entered the Belgian and Dutch hitparades in June 1978 and really blew my mind.
