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 mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.9.

Been a metalhead for a couple years now and this is consistently the most overrated album in the entire metal community. Couple standout tracks (Welcome Home (Sanitarium), Orion), but there are some major low points. Leper Messiah is very dull and there's no reason to not stop the record before Damage Inc. Master of Puppets is easily the most mixed bag in Metallica's discography. I can almost justify giving it 80. Definitely listen to Orion though.

Great record one of the best metal operas. Favorite tracks Battery, Sanitarium, and the relaxing Orion.

Because of the first minute of the album. Because of that Cliff section of Orion.
Because DJ Shadow sampled Orion.
Because...

Arguably the greatest metal album ever, Master of Puppets might be less aggressive than Ride the Lightning, but the songwriting ability of the band reached incredible heights and the lyrics are very poetic.

Poderoso no sólo por sonido, sino también por la potencia de sus emociones. Un trabajo visceral pero sensible.
Quizá la canción homónima no es mi favorita, y también encuentro que el bajo debería tener una mezcla más merecida (que se escuche más fuerte porque es fantástico) pero en un todo es increíble.

The biggest metal band ever at their creative peak. They aren’t trying to out heavy anyone here, they aren’t trying to make something more commercial. They just set out to make the best album they could make at the time and they hit the bullseye.
