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 78.4/100, a mean average of 77.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.8.

I mean, it's just typical straight-ahead rock - it had been done to death by this point, and I doint have an issue with that, but like...this band should be in the 130-160 range, not top 100. and this album s hould barely crack the top thousand....

Energetic, fast, loud, simple and catchy rock. If you are a fan of hard rock, this is an essential album. If not, it gets boring extremely fast (I struggled to make it through). Overall, 50/100.

The equal best of all AC/DC along with 'Powerage'. A fantastic no nonsense rock and roll album that never ages. Last two songs stop it from getting the perfect score but even then, there not bad at all. Very sad that it was Bon's last.

My favorite AC/DC album. Great from start to finish. The highlights (title track, If You Want Blood, Girls Got Rhythm, Touch Too Much) are some of the best songs of the hard rock genre.

These guys have the best songs for your party.

Highlights: Love Hungry Man (I believe iam one of the few who really enjoy this track), Touch Too Much, Highway To Hell, If You Wanna Blood and Girls Got Rythm.

The weak one: Get It Hot.

Great music from one of the greatest rock singers Bon Scott. I like the way he is singing and the guitar form Angus Young. Top album of 79. Great songs: Highway to Hell, Touch To Much, Walk All Over You.

For me this is AC/DC's third best album, great tracks let down by the production, almost 'disco rock'. 'Powerage' and 'Let There Be Rock' are AC/DC's best albums, by a considerable margin. 'Rock and Roll Damnation' should be on this album, not on 'Powerage' where it replaced 'Cold Hearted Man'.
