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 78.6/100, a mean average of 77.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.7.

This album keeps Powerage's energy, but is better produced, one of the AC/DC best.

Pivotal AC/DC album. Rocks hard from start to finish. If You Want Blood... , the title track and Girl's Got Rhythm are personal favourites.

Great album and sadly last with Bon Scott. The title track is a song that everyone knows but there’s so many other great songs. Walk All Over You, Touch Too Much, Shot Down In Flames, If You Want Blood, and Night Prowler are all worth checking out and are just as if not better than the title track

Su mejor disco. Una obra maestra y uno de los mejores discos hard rock de la historia.
Toda la banda en un momento increíble. La voz de Bon increíble, Angus en su línea, Phil no falla y lo de Malcolm... No hay palabras para describirlo.

Todas, TODAS las canciones son buenísimas.

With the exception of Back in Black, Bon Scott-era AC/DC in contrast to Brian Johnson-era AC/DC has several worthwhile albums to listen to such as Dirty Deeds Done Dirty Cheap, High Voltage, Let There Be Rock, and of course Highway to Hell. If you aren't interested in AC/DC's brand of raunchy, sex-obsessed blues-driven hard rock, then you probably won't like this album. However, if you do, then this is one of the ultimate party-rock albums.
