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)

What an opening song, completely blows me away every time I hear it and kicks the album off perfectly. The songs are a bit inconsistent after this though. The highlight of the record for me is the diverse vocal range which is very well explored and is a joy to listen too. The screams and howls really suit the style perfectly and makes every track have something to enjoy. This is closely followed by the guitar as my second favourite part of the album as some of the solos are just incredible. The energy as well is brilliant and is maintained so well for the full duration. However, I do find the album feels a little jumbled in relation to what song goes where in the track listing as some songs lead terribly into the next. I think they could have been arranged a bit better to create a more effective and cohesive listen. Furthermore, a few songs are a little weak such as The Ripper amongst a few more near the closing of the album. Overall, these few weaker tracks really hold the record back but there is still enough enjoyable and quality content here to keep the music at a reasonably high standard.
My favourite from JP; excellent choice for hard rock but even progressive fans; that's their highest point concerning to elegance. Great work.
One of the best covers ever.
I got this after I'd bought 'British Steel' & 'Screaming for Vengence'. Very different to both of those. Bit more proggy with some slower songs included. Took a bit to get used to but quickly grew on me to become one of my favorite Priest albums. Halford's vocals on this are sublime, showcasing how incredible his range was.
One of my favourite Judas Priest album
Sad Wings of Destiny is where Judas Priest found their path. Rob Halford really experiments with his voice on this album. The album also has a surprising amount of variety. Victim of Changes is the album's best song, but the live performances of the song blow the studio version out of the water.
The most awesome mix of 70s hard rock, prog rock and proto metal. Influential and cool beyond words.
Fav tracks: Dreamer Deceiver/Deceiver, Tyrant, Victim Of Changes, Ripper... all really, every single song is great
The music of Hell! Weird and awesome!
