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 86.2/100, a mean average of 85.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

It was undoubtedly a difficult period for the Stones, as they had just weathered the storm of Brian Jones' death and a search for his replacement. Nevertheless, it was perfect timing for the entrance of guitarist Mick Taylor into the band, being that the era's music was defined by strong musicianship and songs with extended time and eclectic guitar solos. Sticky Fingers wasn't the first Stones' album to feature Taylor, but it was the first studio album on which he played throughout. And a strong presence he was. His lead work alongside the signature riffs and rhythms of Keith Richards helped to make it one of the Stones' best albums.
Obra maestra. Simplemente sublime.
Rock'n roll puro. Divertido. Es solo rock'n roll pero me gusta.
Alguna de las mejores y más conocidas canciones de los Stones están aquí como Brown Sugar o la enorme Wild Horses (pelos de punta), pero el álbum no tiene ninguna canción mala. Roza la perfección.
seemless genre to genre transferring great everything
An excellent record, easily up there with the Stones’ best work. Brown Sugar was the big hit, Can’t You Hear Me Knocking is very highly rated, Wild Horses is just sublime, and I’m really loving Sway at the moment too. The last 3 tracks are also quite fascinating - Sister Morphine is wonderfully dark, Dead Flowers is a great country pastiche, and Moonlight Mile has to be the most underrated Stones’ track ever.
A good rock album. I enjoy dead flowers, sway, and sister morphine the most. Brown sugar has aged poorly
Peut être l'album le plus connu, ne serait ce que pour sa pochette, certainement un des albums les mieux notés des Stones. Personnellement j'apprécie cette album que je prends plaisir à écouter de temps en temps, mais je trouve qu'il y a beaucoup mieux chez eux.
A-side is incredible, maybe the best of any Stones album. B-side is pretty good too with Bitch, Moonlight Miles and Sister Morphine. This would be one of the first albums I would recommend to someone just getting into the Rolling Stones or classic rock just in general.
Best Song(s): Brown Sugar; Sway (My favorite Stones song ever); Wild Horses, Can't You Hear Me Knocking; Sister Morphine; Moonlight Mile
Complete with working zipper and cotton briefs, the original art for the vinyl album, conceived by Andy Warhol, is one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most famous and iconic. The songs themselves generally live up to the hype as well, although I have to say that the outright misogyny in some of the Stones' lyrics have not aged well for me. Nevertheless, there's no denying the greatness of some of these songs, and even though I don't love the message, I can't deny that I still love "Dead Flowers" and can't resist singing along to it whenever it comes on. Sometimes you just have to ignore the excesses of seventies rock and take a moment to appreciate what a fun period it was, and how attentive Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, and company have always been when it comes to hearing a terrific rock and roll hook.
The only album by Rolling Stones I can genuinely enjoy. A few tracks I don't care about, but most of the stuff is at least above average, if not more.
Best and by far most consistent album from The Rolling Stones, first four tracks are legendary, doesnt quite hit that mark after that, but still very good.
