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 77.8/100, a mean average of 77.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

Very visceral garage rock with some definite punk influence. One of my favourite records of the decade, as every song seems to be better than the last. The repetitive and aggressive guitar riffs and low-budget feel makes it seem like it was actually recorded in his garage. The cover itself is just incredibly disturbed, which matches his overly-maniacal and ironic tone as he shouts almost monosyllabically. A great record and recommended to me by a friend who I should talk to more.

I fail to see why exactly this album has not reached a high position on the chart for its year of release. It's easily one of the best things to happen during a relative monotonous year in music (or just in general). The sheer punk-rock and violently lyrical forces guiding this thing are bewildering. Plus, who does not love a self-ascribed "concept album about killing a girl"?

One of the best, if not THE best, rock 'n' roll records of the last 20 years. Yes - it's THAT good.

Great slashing album reminiscent of great early 80's punk acts like Rik L Rik and Jeff Dahl.

Not particularly fond of his vocal style on this album. I prefer his music with the Reatards on Teenage Hate. This album is still good though,
