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 6% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.1/100, a mean average of 75.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

Solid debut album form Nirvana, they had never been that heavy and raw after it. I love the section About The Girl, School, Love Buzz any of these could be my favorite song. I aslo find Paper Cuts and Negative Creep very interesting. The album drags for me a bit and I don't like Mr Moustache, but it's overall very good.
Bleach may not be Nirvana's most meticulously crafted album, but it will always be my favorite. The raw, buzzy brutality achieved on this record by just three musicians is as baffling as it is exhilarating. Kurt Cobain was a rare creative force, and I believe Bleach captures his genius in spades. The sheer variety displayed on this project is admirable--from the lurching stoner sludge of "Paper Cuts" and "Floyd the Barber," to the furious thrash of "Mr. Mustache" and "Negative Creep," to the sparkling Beatles-esque beauty of "About a Girl," and everything in between. Underneath all the howling and shredding, there is a tangible lyrical wit and countercultural intelligence. Potent, snarky, catchy, memorable hooks are all over this record. Incredible, and too-often overlooked.
Peso, distorção, agressividade escondendo poesia.
Features my favourite Nirvana track Negative Creep and for raw energy beats Nevermind
Alright debut but nothing too special
My favorite Nirvana album. I’m not saying it to be different or anything, I feel like this album has an authentic quality about it that the later 2 lack, and I don’t get the feeling from Kurt that he is a miserable twat. I give it a 90/100, it’s a great casual listen
Really poor album overall. About A Girl is an incredible song, and drags the rating of this album up considerably - a glimpse of the greatness to come. Love Buzz is okay, but the rest is just incoherent noise.
‘Bleach’ is one of those albums that is historically important without actually being particularly good and clearly suffers from personnel issues (Dave Grohl wouldn’t join Nirvana for another year and Jason Evermore, Soundgarden, wouldn’t play a note despite being credited on the sleeve)
There’s four really solid tracks here in “Blew” / “About a Girl” / the Shocking Blue cover “Love Buzz” and of course “Negative Creep”, the remaining 9 tracks, with the exceptions “Floyd the Barber” & “School” are largely forgettable. Cobain famously declared he was still writing lyrics for ‘Bleach’ on his way to the studio and it kinda shows
I could understand someone saying they prefer this album to Nirvana’s next release, but to say its better is simply wrong
Nirvana’s opening effort shows their embryonic brilliance in punk form. The songs are – for the most part – short and punchy, delivering their message with energy and abandon and then closing abruptly. The songwriting may not quite be up to their future standards but there’s no denying the impact of this album.
Best Track: About A Girl
