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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.3/100, a mean average of 79.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

1969, I Wanna Be Your Dog, and No Fun are all good songs. The rest of this album...can't say much good about the rest of it. We Will Fall is 10 minutes you'll regret. There's nothing memorable in the other 4 songs. Really like Raw Power and Funhouse a lot more.

For this album the Stooges planned to record five songs which were for all intents and purposes were their live set of the day , these tracks were:
(1)"I Wanna Be Your Dog"
(2)"No Fun"
(3)"1969"
(4)"Ann" and
(5)"We Will Fall"
However Electra told the band they needed more songs and so 3 more tracks were hastily composed

The 10 minute slow dirge was a massive surprise fore me , most un-Iggy like

"I Wanna Be Your Dog" still sounds amazing today and carries this album

Just wanted to say that "I Wanna Be Your Dog" might be the best punk track ever recorded. Listening to this thing drives me insane.

L'urlo primitivo ma non scomposto di chi non si identifica nel peace & love, animalesco quanto la presenza scenica del cantante. "1969" traccia il solco, "No fun" e "I wanna be your dog" diventano classici, "We will fall" inventa il dark, l'intero disco sparge semi importanti che germoglieranno a partire dalla seconda metà degli anni settanta col punk. BESTIE FEROCI.

Thought of as a seminal punk album, but surprisingly unpunk in parts.

Although most people seem to rate Raw Power and Fun House higher this is my favourite of the first three albums. Both as a whole album vibe and on an individual songs level (most of my favourite The Stooges songs are from this album).

Along with, fun house, one of the greatest rock'n'roll records ever made. Full of grit, energy and balls, just what classic rock should be all about.
