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 24% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.3/100, a mean average of 73.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

Big step up from their debut, just the quality of songs are better imo and Keith's guitar is icy. Best Stones album 'till "Out of Our Heads."

Best Song(s): Empty Heart; Time is on My Side; Good Time, Bad Time; Congratulations

Much like the debut--little original material mixed in with a bunch of covers, some of which are not well suited to the stones. Worth having mostly for completist purposes only.

First of all boys, nothing like this LP was ever released by Decca in the UK. It is a mish-mash of an EP, Singles, a UK B-side, and random album tracks put together this way only because of the greed of London Records. An album was supposed to be released that contained only tracks recorded at the infamous Chess Studios but it never came to be. Every comment on this site completely misses the boat on this album except for one. The treasures are the Chess songs recorded in true stereo. The real Stones, with Brian Jones, only recorded at Olympic Studios, London, RCA Studios, Hollywood, and Chess Studios, Chicago. Only the studio and engineers at Chess were able to capture the Stones at their best. This LP contains 6 tracks from I believe two Chess sessions. These are the true gems. These tracks were not "rushed", since many of the musicians they idolized, Howlin' Wolf, Chuck Berry, Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, etc recorded primarily at Chess. They were challenged to play Chicago Blues as competently as they could. "Congradulations" is an enjoyable cut but is a pedestrian effort from the Glimmer Twins along with "Grown Up Wrong". The Stones cover of Bobby Womack's "It's All Over Now" hit #1 in the UK. This album contains the version of "Time Is On My Side" that was recorded at Olympic, not the superior version laid down at Chess but it still hit #1 in the UK. The other track of note is the cover of The Drifters "Under the Boardwalk" which actually hit #1 in Australia. As one can see from reading the aforementioned remarks, this LP is ranked abysmally low on this site.

This album feels a bit rushed, "Okay boys let's get another record out there". Not as good as their debut but it's still pretty good.

A little dip from the debut as they stick to a formula.
