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 1% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

I like the U.S. release w/ Clash City Rockers. Fantastic rebellious punk album. Other notable tracks are Janie Jones, I'm so Bored with the U.S.A, London's Burning & Career Opportunities. A must for all punk fans.

My rating is for the US version. It has Clash City Rockers, and doesn't have the filler tracks that the UK version has.

Clash takes punk rock to another level, bringing It up to a listenable sound, meaningful political lyrics and actual capable musicians.

L'unico motivo per cui nessuno indica questo loro esordio come il proprio disco preferito dei Clash è che due anni dopo…

What can I say? First heard this when I was 17 and it blew me away. The sheer power and venomous energy unleashed was in evidence from the first bars of Janie Jones.
You can hear traces of how they would later diversify their style and their version of Junior Murvin’s police and thieves was incredibly influential in terms of the punk-reggae cross-over.
For me this is the quintessential punk album – Five stars all the way.

I actually prefer this album to 'London Calling'.. More energy, raw and 'angsty'..
Fave: 'White Riot'
