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 mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

A lot of rock artists tried their hand at capitalizing on the disco craze and it didn’t go so well. It seems just like what the doctor order for The Stones, though. Some Girls is so much fun and original. It proved they could evolve and still be the baddest rock band on the planet.

Not quite as great as Sticky Fingers, Exile on the main st., or let it bleed but still a solid album. Before they make me run is the best song sung by Keith

Prior to this album being released The Stones were seemingly washed up , considered dinosaurs from a bygone rock era not having produced a hit album since 1972's Exile On Main St some 6 years prior

But boy did they rocket back into mainstream consciousness with the wonderful 'Some Girls' album and largely on the back of its 4 smash hit singles: "Miss You" , "Beast of Burden" , "Respectable" and of course "Shattered"

But lets be honest the whole album could have been singles and in particular "When the Whip Comes Down" , "Lies" and the Neil Young inspired "Far Away Eyes"

From here the band never looked back

One of rocks greatest and best come back albums

This is an excellent album with a real funky feel to it, particularly 'Miss You'. I love the simplicity of the title track which is a personal favourite.
