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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.9/100, a mean average of 79.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

One of my favorite punk albums ever. It's an album that pretty much embodies punk as a genre. It's fast, wild, rebellious, anti-establishment, and everything else thats great about punk. Holiday In Cambodia is an absolute classic punk track

Debut from the greatest ever punk band. Not there best but better than almost anything put out from all other bands of this genre. Fast, furious, brilliant.

This is what the Pistols could have been. Loud, political, but fun, this is a great listen from beginning to end. The lead Kill the Poor hardly holds back, but Drug Me and Holiday in Cambodia are just genius. The comical cover of Viva Las Vegas is the icing.

This is likely, from an objective standpoint, the finest punk rock album of all time.

The strongest album by the most consequential American punk band, excluding the Ramones.

not sure whether to call this the first hardcore punk album, or just slightly faster punk. Anyway, I think it deserves a mention.

Wacky record by these wacky punks.
But don't get fooled, they have some crazy solutions to turn a song around and make it interesting. It's not just conventional punk rock.

A rapid fire political album that extends into the singer going rabid, maybe not for the good of it.
