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)

There is some truly top tier Rolling Stone's songs on here but they are held back by the filler that drags this record down. These weaker tracks, while they still are instrumentally exciting, aren't as captivating or engaging as the elite level songs. The two strongest examples of this are Live With Me and Country Honk as neither demand your attention and just float past you which means by the end of the record you can barely remember how they even go. On the other hand, you do have arguably two of the Stone's greatest ever songs which bookend the record. Both Gimme Shelter and You Can't Always Get What You Want are personal favourites of mine and they open and close the release brilliantly. They are full of depth and experimentation making them instantly grab your attention as they showcase the fantastic talents the group has to offer. If only the rest of the songs on here could live up to the quality on these tracks then we would probably have the best record ever made. Overall, this release is inconsistent and so in my opinion can't be amongst the greatest but it still is very solid and is thoroughly enjoyable to experience.
Gimme Shelter is a great opener, but then the album drags a little with the next three songs after. But then the whole second half makes up for it.
Although I listened to this album 4 times, I still don't know how I feel about it. I love Gimme Shelter which is in my top 10 songs of all time and there are other solid tracks here Let It Bleed, Monkey Man, You Can't Always Get What You Want, but on the other
there are tracks that I don't like at all Love In Vain Country Honk.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Album of the year. 1969. Top tier Stones, would be in my top 3 along with Sticky Fingers and Exile... The hardest part is to decide in which order!!
The best album by the Stones, and most consistant imo. Gimmie Shelter is amazing, Midnight Rambler, Monkey Man and You cant always get what you Want are great, and the rest are good filler as well. 9/10
Opening track (Gimme Shelter) is 100/100 and one of the best songs ever written. Closing track (You Can't Always Get What You Want) is 95/100 and maybe my favourite closer of any album ever. Monkey Man is great too. But the rest is pretty much filler. Really hard to rate this album, as the opener-closer combo is right up there with the best ever (the only one I can think of that comes close is Who's Next with Baba O Riley and Won't Get Fooled Again).
Rock, blues y algo de country (con la ayuda en los arreglos de Gram Parsons) para un clásico de los Stones.
This is my personal favorite era of the Stones. Gimme Shelter might be their best (if not biggest) song.
