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 12% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.9/100, a mean average of 74.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

The first album by The Beatles that is not great but is merely very good. Like with many (maybe most?) Beatles albums, it can't quite surpass the heights of its first song--although, "Eight Days a Week" is its equal. It's still got lots to like, though.
At the end of a long US tour the Beatles went straight into the studio to record this their 4th album. With insufficient material of their own they relied heavily on doing quite a few covers and some not very well. The album is therefore a bit hit and miss. It starts strongly but apart from the first four tracks and Eight Days a Week the rest of the album is fairly average - Honey Don't is poor by Beatles standards. Probably my least favourite Beatles album.
This album grew on me quite a lot from my first review, it is still not great and definitely their weakest, but there are more good songs here than only Eight Days A Week
Best Songs: Eight Days A Week, No Reply, I'll Follow The Sun.
The worst. Eight days a week is great, No Reply and I'm a Loser are decent, otherwise it's just bad. A big step back from A hard days night, and it contains the worst "normal" Beatles track in "Mr. Moonlight" (Not considering Rev9 and WHP)
I love The Beatles, but I hate this album, the only one good song here is Eight Days A Week, apart from this one this is soulless pop that is not entertaining for me at all.
Too Many covers, and frontloaded
I only got this album in the last couple of years although I have known all the main Beatle singles and songs for decades. It is a good album but not yet at the standard of the timeless quality of album that they will deliver in the next few years
Tras una obra maestra como A Hard Day's Night, este disco representa un paso atrás, quizás el único, en la trayectoria de los Beatles (así lo reconoció el propio George Martin). Y, sin embargo, es un álbum extraordinario.
This is not the best beatles album but it is one of my favorites. Close your eyes and pretend you are hearing a demo by an alt-country band playing songs you've never heard. You'll love it.
