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 Bayesian average rating of 82.3/100, a mean average of 81.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.7.

The bridge between hardcore punk and the melodic alternative rock. They completely dominated the 80's college rock radio, screw the SNL ban. Different from any other hardcore punk bands at that time, and the lead singer probably influenced Cobain's rough vocals as well.

It's done? It passed The Beatles' "Let It Be." "The Replacements" indeed. (I've had this on vinyl for years but still never even opened it, never heard this album yet. Only bought the album b/c I know it's highly rated on here and I never heard it. Only rated it 100/100 b/c I wanted to see it pass The Beatles "Let It Be")

EDIT: I think I'll listen tomorrow, seems past due.....

Nothing ever beat the first song off their first record for me. I heard I Will Dare somewhere when I was 19 and I had to check this album out. I enjoyed it but not as much as I enjoy it now. Their best effort in my opinion.

Here's my edgy comment of the day. The Replacements' Let it Be is the best album called Let it Be.

Really good! "I Will Dare" is one of my favorite songs of the '80s.

Replacement's Let It Be gives me more than the Beatles. But it is a great tip of the hat and both albums are amazing.

The Expanded Edition contains 6 additional tracks reviewed below

1. '20th Century Boy'[Outtake]: rocking cover of T-Rex's 1973 single only track TICK

2. 'Perfectly Lethal'[Outtake]: nice enough track but not difficult to understand why it was left off the album TICK

3. 'Temptation Eyes' [Outtake]: dreadful cover of a dreadful song originally done by The Grass Roots in 1970 CROSS

4. 'Answering Machine' [Solo Home Demo]: literally Paul with electric guitar recorded into a cassette player . Awful sound but historically important PASS

5. 'Heartbeat - It's A Lovebeat' [Outtake]: cover of obscure The DeFranco Family 1973 track , too clever for its own good CROSS

6. 'Sixteen Blue' [Outtake - Alternative Vocal ]: almost identical to original PASS

God bless The Replacements , the band that rang the the doorbell to the fame mansion then ran away giggling amongst themselves

"Let It Be" encapsulates everything why we love this band

Its has the sublime in 'I Will Dare' and 'Unsatisfied'

It has the great in 'Answering Machine' & 'Androgynous'

It has WFT moments in 'Gary's Got A Boner ' and ' Tommy(Stenson) Gets His Tonsils Out' which is literally about Tommy getting his tonsils out as Paul struggled to come up with lyrics to pad this album out in the studio

And like all Replacements albums the down right stinker in 'Black Diamond' which is an odd cover off Kiss' 1974 self titled album

God Bless The Replacements
