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 81.9/100, a mean average of 80.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

This was a big step forward for the band, but definitely not the best place to start for new listeners. Their next three albums were on a major label and they are far stronger than Let It Be. I would recommend those LPs or the Don't You know compilation to see how much they changed over a short period of time.

Solid tracks here are I Will Dare, Androgynous, Unsatisfied and Sixteen Blue. The rest is either OK, incomplete sketches or throwaway songs.

Recommended.

Condensed to a 7" Single:
A-Side: I Will Dare
B-Side: Unsatisfied

"I Will Dare" and "Favorite Thing" is a great opening 1-2 punch. I feel like its a bit inconsistent after that. It is more inconsistent than Tim and Pleased to Meet Me, so I am surprised that it is higher ranked than those records.

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.

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.
