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 85.7/100, a mean average of 84.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

One of those albums where the filler is enjoyable

Un album que j'aime beaucoup mais qui tire un peu plus sur le blues qu'à leur habitude.

As good as it gets, one of the greatest classic rock records ever recorded. 18 songs at 67 minutes and the time flies by every time I listen to it. And yes, it's the best album Mick, Keith and crew ever made.

Best song(s): Rocks Off; Tumbling Dice; Sweet Virginia; Torn and Frayed; Ventilator Blues; Let It Loose; Shine a Light; Sweet Black Angel; Happy; Soul Survivor

A good rock album, nothing more for me. A fair number of standout tracks amongst an assortment of stripped down rock'n'roll songs.

Getting into Rolling Stones has been mission impossible for me so far and that is the case here too.
Anyway, if you are looking for some fine rock/blues music, this is it. Also, I have to say that for its length, it is incredibly consistent, no track stands out as a weak link.

It was okay. I only listened to it once, but to me it was just average blues-rock

Some amazing tracks on here, but a lot of it just feels like filler to me, can't get into the "vibe" and much of it feels poorly mixed.
Still a good album though.

Took me too long to get to this, there's not really a bad song on here. Just one of those albums that's totally worth the hype.
