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 81.4/100, a mean average of 80.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

Most consistant of the ones before Help. Title track, should've known Better, Can't buy me love, And i love her. The latter half sinks a bit in consistancy, but still a safe top 10 Beatles album. 10/13 Beatles

This is probably the most consistent early Beatles album and although my favorite tracks from that period land on Help! I enjoy a lot of material here too.
Best tracks: A Hard Day's Night, Things We Said Today, If I Fell, Any Time At All

Primera obra maestra de los Beatles, especialmente de John Lennon, que es el compositor principal de 10 de las 13 canciones del disco.

This is the beginning of that transition between the purely pop Beatles and what they would eventually become.

Early 60's pop rocknroll masterpiece. All songs written by Lennon McCartney, novelty at a time. Great vocals, each song is catchy, some are exceptionally great. Underrated on this site, how can it be below help (great album too tho), let it be or magical mystery tour and have rating of less than 90

So many pop/rock gems it feels unfair for everyone else trying to compete with that.
