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 83.9/100, a mean average of 83.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

I find this one of the most consistent Stones albums - something they struggle with I feel. But this is a strong album - maybe doesn't hit the highs of Exile On Main Street, but that has a few weak tracks - whilst this album doesn't dip below a good rating throughout

This album is mixed bag for me, Sympathy For The Devil and Street Fighting Man are great but the rest is just nothing amazing.

Quizás este sea el álbum más acústico de los Stones y, en todo caso, mi favorito.

Definitely something a little bit different from the Stones, but not my favorite material.

The Stones getting acoustic and bluesy. This album displays the real Stones. The electric and rocked up tunes are great too.

El primero de los cuatro discos que conforman su época dorada. Quizá por eso sea el preludio de la grandeza de los tres siguientes.
Un inicio espectacular con Simpathy, el cual puede considerarse uno de los mejores arranques de un álbum.
Otras grandes canciones son: Street fighting man, Salt of the earth, No expectations,...
En general un disco buenisimo. Las acústicas suenan bestiales.

Possibly the most consistent Stones album in that there isn't a bad track here. The obvious tracks of note are Sympathy For The Devil and Street Fighting Man of course, both of which have made it onto many compilations over the years, but Factory Girl, Salt Of The Earth, No Expectations and Dear Doctor are all great tracks and well worth investigating.

good acoustic rock album. I find this more enjoyable than let it bleed and sticky fingers
