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 83.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

Perhaps one of the greatest albums of the 1960s featuring two of the all-time greatest singles ever issued on a single album - "Sympathy For The Devil" and "Street Fighting Man". Those two tracks pack so much emotion that the other eight songs really don't matter at all! (Of course, I jest) Each of the eight have characteristics which redeem them.

Really good sympathy for the devil and street fighting man are really the standouts for this album overall 90 points for the toilet album. Very meaningful.

Beggars Banquet represents the Stones' fulfillment of the promise shown on Aftermath, which they would promptly eclipse with their next three albums.

Los Stones por fin encuentran su sonido, logrando volar para empezar a recorrer el camino que los llevaría a la cima de su estilo.

Después de incursionar por la psicodelia (con resultados neutros), se inclinaron al R&B y Country, creando el album que los haría sobresalir.

El último disco en el cual colaboraron con Brian Jones, pero el cual tambien ya se encontraba un poco desapegado a la banda.

Sympathy for the Devil es la joya de este album, donde el mismo Lucifer nos narra como ha estado presente en cada suceso importante del mundo.

Street Fighting Man inspirada por el mayo frances y la Guerra de Vietnam, fue boicoteada por las estaciones de radio, ya que era considerada desestabilizadora.

Podemos recorrer influencias desde James Brown, Bob Dylan y Velvet Underground.

No es su mejor album pero sin duda es un clásico por el contexto cultural que abarca y que más que ser el album que haría despegar a los Stones.

The first truly great album by the Stones. Sympathy for the Devil is the big gem, the rest are solid.

It seems they've escaped from the Beatles with this album, yet it's not a perfect album by any means. Despite that, it's THEIR sound and no one else's. The opener is a classic, and the rest of the album is fun yet not-so-special rock and roll.

Pure excellence from the Stones! Every song is great in it's own way. Late 60s were the best era of the Stones.
