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 16% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 74.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

There are some great songs, but they are watered down by filler and cover songs. A step down from A Hard Day's Night
Another great early Beatles record, my only issue is the covers on this are weaker than previous Beatles albums.
Best song(s): No Reply; I'll Follow the Sun; Eight Days a Week; What You're Doing
Best tracks: Rock N Roll Music, Eight Days a Week, What You're Doing
Worst tracks: Honey Don't, I Don't Want to Spoil the Party, Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby
Good album i like What are you doing, eight Days a week an im a loser. For me one of their best work.
Fantastic album. Have always enjoyed it more than A Hard Day's Night and Help!, despite most people saying this is the red-headed step-child of the early albums.
I Don't Want To Spoil the Party is the hidden gem of the album and my favourite.
I have mixed feelings on this one. On the one hand, there are some truly great tracks here like No Reply and Eight Days A Week. On the other hand, there's a whole lot of filler and bland covers. It's probably the worst of the early Beatles albums and it feels like a big step back from A Hard Day's Night. I still think it's an important chapter in the history of the Beatles but I definitely don't come back to this one very often.

It's the Beatles so it's at least a good album. Least of the Beatles albums so far, however.
Often a lower ranked album on Beatles lists, but mostly for the lackluster covers on the album like "Words of Love". At least to Beatles standards, a slight disappointment, but a decent Beatles album is often a masterpiece compared to other works of the time.
