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 has a Bayesian average rating of 74.1/100, a mean average of 72.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.0.

Definitely has grown off me, I always go with Dookie, but still some solid tracks on here like "Jesus Of Suburbia," and"St. Jimmy."

Uno de mis discos favoritos de mi temprana pubertad. Lo compré con mi propio dinero a los 11 ó 12 años. Ahora que lo vuelvo a escuchar me trae muchos recuerdas y puedo apreciar la música con más detenimientos, y reconocer ciertos aciertos y ciertos errores. Mis tres canciones favoritas son Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Jesus of Suburbia y Wake Me Up When September Ends, con menciones honoríficas a Letterbomb y Holiday. Siempre me ha parecido que hay canciones poco reconocidas como Letterbomb o Whatsername, incluso She's A Rebel, esta última que lejos de estar ante una gran calidad de letras, logra cautivarme con su punk acelerado. Sin embargo, hacer canciones de este tipo es una gran apuesta para una de las bandas og del punk. Siento que es uno de sus mejores discos y contiene temas más memorables, no como el 21st Century Breakdown, que tiene varias olvidables. Sin embargo, hay algunas de este disco que también me parece que desentonan, algunos fan favorites como Give Me Novacaine o St. Jimmy, que en los live son muy bien recibidas, pero ni así logran convencerme. En fin, este es un album que siempre recordaré con mucho cariño por todos los recuerdos de la adolescencia que me trae, y siempre rockearé con los mejores temas del mismo.

Absolute the Green Day masterpiece. The album is better than the average rating of all the songs.

The first album that I listened to front to back as a kid. While I don't love it as much as I did back in '04, it will always hold a special place in my heart.

Their most ambitious album ( there is also "21st Century Breakdown" but by that time they had already tried it once, while here it was uncharted territory), as all the songs of the album are part of one story. The songwriting is on point and quite consistent, one struggles to find the weak links. Overall, 90/100.
