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 has a Bayesian average rating of 66.6/100, a mean average of 65.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 66.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.9.

This was the album that bought AC/DC back into the spotlight with claims of renewed glory prevalent to days of old. It bought huge disappointment for me. 'Rock & Roll Train' is alright, nothing spectacular, but the rest is mundane, repetitive, and has absolutely nothing new to offer.

Quite a solid offering this late in the game. If only it was 9-10 tracks instead of 15, you'd have an incredibly solid album. Seriously, there are enough good/great songs on here for a 10 track album, but they had to make it nearly an hour long for almost no reason. Those extra 4 or 5 tracks (which ones they are depends entirely on the listener) are kinda... well.. filler. Not terrible, but nothing very special or worth listening to more than twice. "She Likes Rock and Roll"? Come on. I'm probably giving this too much shit, though, because there are about 9 or 10 solid tracks that make this album worth listening to a lot, you just have to chose which tracks to skip and which to not skip. The good tracks all have a great groove and are, surprisingly, melodic in comparison to the gut wrenching hard rock of let's say Flick of the Switch.

This album was a really big deal for me when it came out. I probably listen to it a bit with nostalgia ears, but I think it AC/DC's best release in a while at the time. There some are some classic sounding tracks, but I also thought they deviated a bit from their sound with a few tracks. It probably would be a better album at 12 tracks instead of 15, but after an eight year wait I was glad they didn't hold back.

Key Tracks: Rock N' Roll Train, War Machine, Decibel, Stormy May Day, Anything Goes, Rock N' Roll Dream and Black Ice

When this came out, it had been 8 years since the last AC/DC album. As soon as you hear those opening chords....you KNOW it's AC/DC....and it's like seeing an old friend after a long time apart. AC/DC's style may be simple and basic...but nobody sounds quite like them.

It may not be the most memorable AC/DC album, buy the end has some great tracks like Stormy May Day, She Likes Rock 'n' Roll, and especially Rock 'n' Roll Dream.

When a seminal bands grows old, looks for one more fat paycheque and sells out to Walmart, it sounds like this.
