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 artists can have several thousand ratings)

This artist is rated in the top 1% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 87.0/100, a mean average of 86.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.2/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 14.0.

They ain't called the world's greatest rock and roll band ever for no reason. Between Mick Jaggers unique emotionally charged vocals and those incredibly distinctive guitar riffs, you've got one hell of a band.

One of the greats, but their good work is watered down by pretty much everything they've done after 1972. Very scattershot. I'm also not very impressed by the musicianship in this band, with exceptions made for charlie, brian jones, and mick taylor.

Yes one of my favourites bands. Their best period for me is from 1968 -1976.

For what they do best (raunchy, sexy rock'n'roll), noboby can touch them. And they're great at other genres too (pop ballads, rootsy Americana, exotic psychedelia, etc...). The second greatest band in the world, if I'm asked.

I used to love them as a teen and young adult, but the Stones went down a few notches in my estimate recently. Jagger spends way too much time putting down women on his records, and doesn't seem mature (unlike say, Lennon). Even the bluesmen whom he tried to emulate were not quite so cynical.

Factoring quality, quantity and longevity, the Stones are arguably the best ever pure rock 'n' roll band. Any list of legendary albums would have several of the Stones' best on it. They had a few misses, but two few to mention. They will be remembered long after this writer is gone.
