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 7% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 76.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

Classic UK Punk album - after Brian James left people thought the Damned were finished but this album proved them wrong - nearly every track is great

How is this not rated higher on BEA!? This band has a very unique brand of melodic, almost psychedelic sounding punk and I love it! Definitely more mature than their debut, which was a little more generic in terms of style for the time (although I like that one as well). This album hits hard too. Never a dull moment. Gotta love Smash It Up too.

Can't believe I had to search for this one as I thought it would easily be top 20 of 1979. 45.....forty*******five!!!, i know 79 was a good year but come on. Great, great album with so many stellar tracks. Anti-pope with it's Magic Bus soundlike instrumental break is outstanding as is Plan 9 Channel 7.

My favourite punk album by my favourite punk band (is it really punk?) Every song a winner (unless you have the stupid extended version - don't you hate that). You just can't beat Smash It Up.

What! The circus clown is the best track!! Not really, but I can't skip any of them, that's just not proper machine gun etiquette. (Plus the forward button on my i-pod is broken, so that's the real reason)
