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 91.2/100, a mean average of 90.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

Almost better than Abbey Road. Certainly different.

This album represents everything The Beatles stood for, thanks to the intellectually stimulating songwriting and The Beatles' brilliant vision, brought to life by the incredible late Geoff Emerick.
The passion on this album gives me shivers.

First listened to this in my Dads attic. An old battered Mono Copy just playable but loved it from that day to this.
Great album. Years later bought the Beatles U.S. Albums. WOW what a difference. Both stereo and Mono mixes so much better .

Cuando se habla de la evolución de la música de los Beatles, uno se debate entre Rubber Soul, Revolver y Sgt. Pepper's como el ápice de su cambio de estilo. Pues para mí el giro radical de su discografía podrá haber comenzado con Rubber Soul, pero se cimienta con Revolver. Un disco inspirado en gran parte por el LSD que nos hizo desaprender todo lo que los Beatles nos habían ofrecido antes, y preguntarnos ¿cuál es el verdadero género que tocan estos chicos? Respuesta que más adelante confirmaríamos que no se puede encasillar en solo dos o tres géneros, al menos para cubrir todo su estilo.

Me regalaron el disco en mi cumpleaños #15 si bien recuerdo, y para esto ya había empezado mi colección de discos de The Beatles. Lo había escuchado en youtube antes que desaparezcan por completo su música y antes que aparezca en Spotify. Mis tres favoritas han variado mucho con el tiempo, recuerdo que en primaria era Taxman, luego fue I'm Only Sleeping, Got to Get you into my life, entre otras. Creo que a todos nos ha pasado. Hoy, analizando mejor la calidad musical, los temas de sus letras y la influencia de cada uno de los temas, podría decir que mi top 3 se compone de Eleanor Rigby, Here, There and Everywhere y For No One, en ningún orden en particular. Recuerdo que escuchaba todo el album y al final solía saltar Tomorrow Never Knows. Grave error. Ahora que me educado un poco escuchando una gran cantidad de artistas, comprendo que lo que hicieron los Beatles en el 66 con ese tema no tiene precedentes. Así de simple. Es un album que en un tiempo pasado lo escuché tantas veces tantos días seguidos que hubo un tiempo en el que lo dejé de disfrutar por el exceso de reproducciones. Sin embargo, hace tiempo que ya le recuperé el gusto y espero que no se vuelva a ir. Es uno de mis albums favoritos y bien podría decir que es mi favorito de los Beatles. Esto no es una queja, pero Paul y John le podrían haber dado más espacio a los temas de George, me parece que pudo haber explotado aún más su potencial como compositor. Para finalizar, Paperback Writer y Rain TUVIERON que estar aquí.

Altho certain songs are less strong than I remember, especially on side B, this was the strongest album at the time of it's release. The entire album is way ahead of it's time, sadly it doesn't get enough credit (historically) due to Abbey Road and Sgt Pepper being more iconic.

Out of their "big" albums, this has been the one I haven't managed to connect with, but Eleanor Rigby has to be a top 5 Beatles song.

J'aime beaucoup cette album pour son côté expérimental et c'est certainement celui que j'aime le moins pour ce même côté expérimental. Je trouve qu'ils sont allés trop loin au détriment de la musicalité. Le dernier titre de cet album est, pour moi, une cacophonie.

I have heard a lot of albums in my lifetime but this is the greatest album I've ever heard front to back. Experimental, psychedelic, rocking, emotional, playful, fun and extremely consistent. 35 minutes of absolute music perfection. Anyone who says this album sucks is just ignorant.


Rating - 10/10.
