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 85.5/100, a mean average of 84.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

After revisiting I like this album even more, trippy and psychedelic as hell.

What a fantastic release from the Beatles who can't be stopped from releasing amazing music when they were at their peak. The album starts a little slow with the couple of weaker tracks coming right at the start except for the title track and the fool on the hill. Once you reach I Am The Walrus however, it is flat out mesmerising. Every song is full of colour and life. They have lush arrangements scattered amongst all of them with some incredible lyrics and catchy choruses to hook you. They are simply genius with Penny Lane being the peak for me with it overpowering me with nostalgia. The close of the record is just so much fun that it elevates the whole record up massively even though without this the musical quality is still extremely high. Overall, without the slow start there is an argument for this being the best ever Beatles album but with it the record is still amazing and deserves a lot of praise.

How this album was released in the same year as Sgt Peppers is incredible and shows the brilliance of The Beatles at this particular time. This is an incredible collection of songs.

Why not considerated so highly? Mah... anyway, is mandatory to specify that USA version gets many more points.

There are some of the greatest Beatles' tracks on this one but it isn't very consistent. Strawberry Fields Forever is one of their best songs if not the best.

Este álbum, en pricipio, solo se editó como tal en América. Unía las canciones del EP Magical Mystery Tour con singles más o menos cercanos. De las primeras destacan Fool On The Hill, I Am The Walrus y la que daba título al disco. De los singles, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields Forever y All You Need Is Love.

Quizá sea su álbum más infravalorado. Y yo no sé por qué, pero es quizás el que menos he escuchado de ellos. Pero son los Beatles, sigue siendo un discazo, como todos.
