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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.0/100, a mean average of 77.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.9.

Tremendo registro en vivo de Nirvana!! A lo largo de los 77 minutos no podrás de dejar de mover los pies, incluso te contagiaran las ganas de saltar. Un track tras otro son un impulso de adrenalina y velocidad!! Existe una versión que trae el DVD y el CD, magnífico registro tanto visual como de manera auditiva !!

77 minutes of speaker-breaking pure adrenaline that makes you wonder why they even bothered with studio recordings in the first place.

Fantastic live album. I had this taped live off bbc radio 1 at the time that I used to play a bit. A must have for fans. BUT. Why put fake crowd noise on after each track? Why do people do this to live records? It adds no atmosphere. Is it to make sure we know there are lots there? It is just plain annoying. Also is it not a bit of an insult to old kurt? Can't imagine he would be impressed with a move like that. It kind of goes against everything he was about. Whoever is responsible, you are a wanker. I hope the band weren't involved.

Not a huge fan of live albums bet hey as I was there thought I'd better pick this one up. I guess this has gone down as one of those legendary performances which is nice. In reality I was wet through from our tent being flooded the night before, cold, hungry and ready to go home.

@ Magenta: That's Awesome!
@ an_outlaw: makes no sense... worst things ever to put on shuffle are live albums, imo.

I haven't heard this recording, but saw the dvd, and loved it.

As long as it says Nirvana on the cover, I'm sure I'll be satisfied with the contents.

I was there - and it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. This album is great and really does the vibe and atmosphere justice!
