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 81.3/100, a mean average of 80.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

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

Arguably, the greatest of the Beatles' first five records, prior to their groundbreaking shift on Rubber Soul. Classics here include 'A Hard Day's Night', 'Can't Buy Me Love', and my personal favorite, 'And I Love Her'. However, there are so many more great tracks here such as 'If I Fell', 'Anytime At All', and 'You Can't Do That' to name a few. Hardly a sour note on this iconic album.

Not the best Beatles album, but I think it might just be my favorite. This album changed music forever. The height of Beatlemania. The movie. The innocence of the era and songs. The smooth consistency that takes you through the album without a dull moment. The rich blue cover with all of their little portraits. The mighty Lennon at his best. Genius. I recommend listening to the mono version.

Tons of energy.Up there with their very best and by that I mean White Album, Abbey Road etc. Of course it doesn't have the later period's sonic experimentation , lyrical maturity, and massive scope. Still there are very few weak songs and a lot of them are among their best. Lennon in particular was starting to peak as a songwriter.
