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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.4/100, a mean average of 79.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

A very inconsistent record by the Beatles with some of the songs being absolutely incredible and others just being pretty weak or boring. The songs that are on the better end of the spectrum are Across The Universe, Let It Be, The Long And Winding Road and Get Back. Pretty much every other track is filler and is nowhere near the standards of their previous releases. Songs like Dig It and Maggie Mae are completely useless in my opinion and I know they are short but they serve no real purpose on here. You can see the cracks starting to form in the music as well and this record, unlike some of their others, isn't better for it. Overall, an up and down release from a group whose cohesiveness was really fading by this point and so a pretty weak album by their standards was created.

Title track is one the best songs ever written, and my favourite Beatles track. Long and Winding Road and Across the Universe are also brilliant. The rest of the album is nothing special, although I've Got A Feeling and Get Back are nice.

Not the greatest Beatles album but there are a lot of highlights and only a few duds in the tracklist

if the beatles didnt broke up after abbey road and came back to check this album, we can replace songs here with tunes like,
my sweet lord,
wah-wah,
isnt it a pity,
maybe im amazed,
god,
mother,
working class hero,
isolation,
love,
what is life,
all things must pass
art of dying

I've reevaluated this album thanks to the Get Back Documentary. I like the return to basics approach for this record. Although some of Phil Spector's productions take away from that feel. I do like his addition to The Long and Winding Road. There's still some incredible Beatles songs here. The opportunely special edition release was surprisingly fun to explore as well since Glyn Johns' original mixes are completely different than the eventual replacement by Spector.

It is not their best album. They missed George Martin and they probably needed a vacation. But it's still great.

Honestly, I love Phil Spector's production here. I think that it is far better than the Get Back cut and far better than Let It Be Naked. Just a great album and a wonderful end to the Beatles' main stint together. I think that this album is among their best (I'd put it at #5).
