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)

Best songs: I Saw Her Standing There, Please Please Me, Love Me Do, and Twist and Shout!
One of the best debut-albums ever. The opener is simply lovely, Misery is underrated, Love me Do, Do u want to know a secret, and ending on a high with Twist and Shout. Unfortunately to much filler to compete with later records, but the highs prove what we know today, big potential.
I love highlights of this album (I Saw Her Standing There, Please Please Me, Love Me Do), but there is also a lot of awful stuff on here like Chains, Boys, Anna Go To Him, A Taste Of Honey and they are all irritating and horrible.
The time was '63 and there wasn't much else happening musically apart from the Freewheelin Bob Dylan. The Beatles sound was new, it was fresh and it was taken up by the post war generation with great gusto. But to listen to some of this music now you maybe have to wonder why. Does the passing of time present a fair context within which to judge the past. Speaking now I would say that some of the tracks remain enjoyable but some are just so dated by today's standards. However, my younger self reminds me when I first heard this oh so many years ago, I thought the musical world had just been turned upside down.
Uno de los mejores álbumes de debut de la historia del rock.
Horrible, childish, tinker toy tunes.
Fortunately their songwriting
improved greatly as time went on.
Obviously only the beginning, but it's fun to imagine what this would have been like to hear in 63 considering what we know now about what the Beatles would give us.
Anna. OMG do I love that song.
