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 13.6.

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

Yeah, this is still one of the best Rolling Stones album, easily. Great production and a solid mix of acoustic and electric throughout.

Best song(s): Sympathy for the Devil; No Expectations (favorite song off this record); Jig-Saw Puzzle; Street Fighting Man; Stray Cat Blues; Salt of the Earth

This album is the start of the Stones golden period, not weak track on it. I would have it in my top six Stones albums.

Not their best, but the opening track makes it a must listen.

I love the Stones, but I don't find this to be a particularly memorable group of songs.

One of the best openers of all time, and Street Fighting Man is great too, everything else ranges from decent to good

Dear Doctor was really good until the weird singing at the end, and the last 2 tracks, though still decent, kind of bring down the quality when you compare to the rest of the record. 10 songs, short and sweet.

Absolutely LOVE the piano on this record!!
