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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.6/100, a mean average of 78.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

This album is awesome in every aspect.
The musicianship is far better and inventive than almost pretty much other punk bands ever. The bass-drum section drives the band like a locomotive while East Bay Ray surf style twang really stands out with a lot of resources. It never gets boring nor just some play to fill the sound up. And of course Jello is a charismatic frontman that really takes his intelligent lyrics through the band and directly to you.
Every song deals with some decadent aspect of our materialistic and egocentric culture. It was released in 82 and more than 30 years later it's still valid and fresh as morning news.

I know a lot of people wouldn't like this raw and primal style record but IMHO everyone should give this an unprejudiced listening with the lyrics at sight at least once.

A brilliant record.A rare case of full throttle, hardcore punk displaying phenomenal musicianship. And the songwriting does a brilliant job of giving the whole record the theme of a scathing attack on middle class yuppy existence. Great stuff!

brilliant from start to end ! very different from Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, but at least as good. This must be higher in the overall chart !

I like how all the songs seem to be mini storys/points of view. It's really tongue in cheek too which makes it fun! Brilliant guitars too!
