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 90.5/100, a mean average of 89.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

The most cohesive, imaginative album I've ever heard. A concept album that is so visceral that it feels like it's ingrained into the English culture. I feel like I'm walking through the streets of London in the '60s when listening to it or like I'm watching a Wallace and Gromit film.

When any work of art gets to the point of adulation, that this album has gotten, inevitably there will be contrarians and often a nagging feeling that loving this album is “just not cool anymore man”.
let’s not let naysayers cloud our judgement: this album is not only important but also awesome. It works perfectly as a body of work on its own, the kind of album that cannot be analyzed by just looking at songs individually. Revisionism be dammed

An album that brings a smile to my face every time I listen to it. Great songs right through with some of the less commercial ones being the better for me personally. (Getting Better, Fixing a Hole, She's Leaving Home, Benefit of Mr Kite) An album of near perfection.

The overrated album. This album is undeniably a very strong entry in the Beatles catalogue, extremely influential and pretty fun. It has however been hailed too much in my opinion, with quite a lot of weaker songs on it. It is great enough that it should be in any top 100 list, but why it topped many over the decades confuses me.

So many heavy hitters, but for me it's Within You Without You the one that seals the deal.

This might be the most important album personally that i've ever listened to. It made me a fan of the Beatles for life at age 14 and never looked back.
Best song(s): All of them
