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 91.7/100, a mean average of 90.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

One word... medley. In my mind what is achieved in McCartney's sprawling Abbey Road medley is the finest moment of his career and one of the greatest moments in musical history.

With songs like Come Together, Something, Octopus's Garden, Here comes the Sun and the Abbey Road medley this could be a greatest hits album. But it isnt! Its a masterpiece all the way from start to finish. The coverart is one of the best coverarts ever made, and its a struggle to find something to compare. Almost perfection, but Oh Darling, she's so heavy and Because makes it only the second best album by the Beatles IMO

Perfect album front to back. Here Comes The Sun, Come Together, Something and She's So Heavy are ones of the greatest tracks ever made. Octopus's Garden and Maxwell's Silver Hammer are fun in my opinion. And the medley at the end is gorgeous.

I don't understand why this one comes out as the best Beatles album on this site, a couple of great tracks but much of it is uninspiring. Maybe it's the cover art.....

A great album. Something may be the standout track for me. I just wish the second side medley were all full individual songs in their own right

Not a huge Beatles fan, but can't deny the greatness of this album - it's my favourite of theirs by some margin. Here Comes The Sun, Come Together, Something, Because and Golden Slumbers are sublime. I'm not into the small 1 minute filler songs like Polythene Pam and Mean Mr Mustard which I don't really think offer much, which is my general gripe with most of their albums.

No soy capaz de valorar objetivamente las canciones de este álbum (para mí, el mejor de la historia del rock) de forma individual. Todas me parecen magníficas. Pero es el conjunto (especialmente en la monumental suite final) lo que le da el valor de algo irrepetible.

I'm not AS high on this album as everyone else seems to be, but I totally understand the draw. I think the Beatles were just so incredible in their use of sonic creativity and lyricism that it's easy to debate where their records lie in regards to the all-time greatest music ever made.
