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 85.5/100, a mean average of 84.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

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.

El mejor disco de los Rolling Stones en mi opinión. Hermoso en todo sentido. Gimme Shelter siempre me parecerá la mejor de los Stones. Love in Vain es una que no tiene tanto reconocimiento en mi opinión, es un cover, pero qué linda canción, con un tono country. El último lyric "The blue light was my baby, and the red light was my mind" siempre me toca fuerte. Qué pedazo de canción. Ahora, hay mucho hate en Country Honk pero esta versión en realidad me gusta, y fue la primera con la que conecté del album la primera vez que lo escuché allá por octubre de 2019. Por supuesto que prefiero Honky Tonk Women, pero Country Honk no se queda tan tan atrás. Live with Me es rock puro, no tengo nada que reprocharle. Let It Bleed, la que le da el título a la canción, me encanta porque en los lyrics tiene el estilo más Beggars Banquet del album. "We all need someone we can CREAM on". Midnight Rambler es una maravilla con todas sus letras. En mi top 3 del album sin dudas. Ahora, si tuviera que elegir la más "floja" del album, esa sería You got the Silver, que igual me gusta mucho, solo que en comparación al resto no sé, no me pega tanto, pero sí la disfruto al escucharla, le doy 80. Monkey Man es otra que me gusta pero no tanto como tipo el top 5 del album. En fin, igual se pasa bien al escucharla. Y You Can't Always Get What You Want, uf, es hermosa, sobre todo la versión en la que Mick canta con The Dirty Mac, y al final sale John aplaudiendo. Es tan satisfactorio ver a tantas leyendas de la música en ese video.

Uf, me inspiré un poco para esta reseña, pero sí, sin dudas, sin un pelo en la lengua, lo reitero: Es mi album favorito de los Stones, y quizás tenga ese apego especial porque fue el primero que escuché completo, y desde entonces no he dejado de rockear cada vez que lo escucho. Masterpiece.
