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 88.5/100, a mean average of 87.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

Forgot the first statement of my last comment, I love this album. Not as much as WL/WH though...

Esas últimas dos canciones hasta ahora no me llegan a gustar lo suficiente para considerarlas a la altura de las demás. Para el estándar del album sí califican, porque en efecto es quizá lo más experimental que se pone el album. Solo que estéticamente no me satisfacen mucho. Es una pena, porque le bajan el promedio a las demás canciones del album. No puedo escoger solo 3 canciones como favoritas, porque todas son muy buenas. Entre mis favoritas están Heroin, Venus in Furs, I'm Waiting for the man, All Tomorrow's Parties y Sunday Morning. Es inexplicable lo que te hace sentir Heroin, es ya la perfección de todo. I'm Waiting for the Man creo que es la segunda que me choca más, me parece que junto a Heroin son mis lyrics favoritos de este grandioso album. En fin, The Beatles es mi banda favorita, pero hablando de 1967, elegiría The Velvet Underground and Nico sobre Sgt. Pepper's sin dudarlo.

One of the most influential albums ever. I think nico is a welcome presence on this record, even if she wasn't necessary at all. Nico contrasts lou reed well and brings a feeling to the songs she appears on that lou could never replicate himself. This lp deserves all of the accolades it receives.

One of those critics albums. This is a record that people need to explain why is so "great". Cause obviously the music is not enough to justify the ranking.

Like one comment said here, is an insult that us as human beings with ears and a brain are supposed to believe this album is actually one of the greatest of all time.

Really neither the band or the album belong in such categorie. Who can put them there without having to add the critics reviews to back up their claims?

And I like some songs, but really, not even close to something like Help by The Beatles.

Unbelievable that they made this record in the sixties. I am not always in the mood listening to it, but I give it 85/100. The voice of Lou Reed is great on this album.

A mon sens l'album le plus sur évalué qu'il existe. Sympa a écouter, mais je n'adhère pas à tout.

Hated it on the first listens, how could anyone like this unpolished mess, with mundane delivery by both Reed and Nico?
But then it suddenly clicked, the raw barrage of sounds immerses you in VU's world, the underbelly of 60's NY, filled with drugs and hookers, and it's absolutely great.
