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 91.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

Perhaps the most definitive Beatles album, alongside Revolver. It's the most bittersweet and tender farewell you will ever hear in music.

First heard this at my Grandma's house in about '75. It was my Auntie's copy. She was 19. I was 12. Had no idea who the bearded lot were on the front cover. I thought The Beatles were mop tops still playing She Loves You etc. What made me play it were the funny titles. 'Bathroom Window', 'Polythene Pam' etc. The love affair with this album started there. Hunched over the record player, trying not to wake my Grandad up who was in bed asleep. He worked nights at the Pit. That's my story

Songs make albums, GREAT songs make great albums. This is a flawless record, perfect from the opening track all the way to "Her Majesty"

Albums like these stand above the rest. They have it all. Classic songs that have been covered thousand of times, great singing, production and playing, sold millions of copies.

Top that with what it is, arguably, the most iconic album cover of all time and you cant go wrong with Abbey Road.

And this is just a taste of the genius of this band, too big to touch or to categorize.

My Favourite Beatles record, the first side is packed with gems, while de second is a unique meddley. Paul is truly incredible, while George is at its peak and John is as good as always.

Amazing album, great songs carry side A, and a unique and fun medley run on side B. Altho not all songs on the album are amazing (MSH, MMM) they are not bad enough to ruin the greatness, and are still quite enjoyable
