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.

Los Beatles volviendo a sus raíces en su album de despedida. No he definido si es mi menos favorito de The Beatles, pero es uno de mis menos favoritos. Eso sí. Los añadidos de Phil Spector seguramente influyeron a la baja calidad en comparación a lo que tenía planeado Paul. En fin, aún así tiene canciones espectaculares. Mis tres favoritas son Let It Be, I Me Mine y Two Of Us. Y las dos que se llevan el premio de la vergüenza son Dig It y Maggie Mae. No tengo mucho que decir, salvo que, pese a que no lo considere de sus mejores albums, es lindo que hayan dejado un album con rock clásico para el final.
I put the headphones on the other night and listened to this. I disagree that the production is bad. I have the original pressing and it sounded amazing. Very crisp instruments and vocals. (For instance, compare the production on this to the massively muddy sound of led Zeppelin's physical graffiti.)
The first three tracks on side one are epic! Side 2 is weaker but has the Long and Winding Road and Get Back which are worth the price of admission. I put this album among their top five or six. Just hearing them jam and stick together bits and pieces (a la side 2 of Abbey Road) is a treat anyone who appreciates the greatest band of all time should dig.
An adequate record, made worse by bad production and a lack of cohesiveness.
The Beatles' half-ass is better than most bands' try-hard.
Poor production (sorry Phil Spector), lack of cohesion and random filler tracks and sound bites hold this album back from being a standout conclusion to the Beatles studio catalogue. The presence of some incredibly poetic tracks, such as 'Across the Universe' and 'The Long and Winding Road', make this LP all the more bittersweet.
Pickier Beatles fans could be forgiven for passing on this one.
This album is notable because it contains one very
beautiful song - The long and winding road. There
are 2 other very good songs - Let it Be and Get Back.
the rest is filler - but most albums have filler.
This album is worth buying for the 3 good songs
I only got round to actually listening to this album (2020) - having known many of the tracks and loved them for years. The rest of the album did not disappoint with Two Of Us; I Me Mine and I've Got Feeling new listens and superb. I even like Maggie Mae for it's full 41 seconds. The album has moments of sounding a bit like a jam with the off mic discussion and inclusion of Maggie Mae. It is now my favourite Beatles album
This album's production is the epitome of "If we play loud people might think we're good."
Average Track Rating = 85.83
A much looser sounding Beatles album, more than anything else they recorded this sounds like 3 distinct songwriters writing & performing their own songs and then releasing the finished product as a Beatles album ...... but it works the results are some of their best work Let It Be, Across The Universe, I've Got A Feeling & The Long & Winding Road stand out for me overall the album sounds fresh despite the fact that most of it was recorded at least a year previously.
