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 mean average rating of 84.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 85.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

Really nice sounding record with some cool music but way too dedicated to standard rock'n'roll which makes it boring especially on the second half of it.
sprawling blues rock masterpiece. The best stones album for sure.
The best rock album ever ?
Let It Bleed and Beggars Banquet are way better.
Great album, understand why it's on the list. Still don't understand the hype behind the Stones, would have put this far lower on the overall chart
It's a slog to get through.
Shine A Light makes this album more than worth listening to.
It is a good collection of basic solid rock songs but lacks any magic or journey that I look for in an album. Tumbling Dice and Shine A Light are great along with many others.
I have liked the Stones without ever getting into them - I lived off their 40 Licks for years before finally getting hold of some of their albums in the last few years. I don't love everything on this album - I Just Want To See Her Face and Loving Cup as two examples; but when a single album has Sweet Virginia, Stop Breaking Down and Shine A Light, then you need to give it the appropriate nod. And the album has even more with Tumbling Dice and Happy amongst others as also great tracks.
