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 90.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

The ultimate Beatles concept album, despite them never intending for it to be a concept album.
This is probably the most influential and important album in the history of music and the quality on here solidifies it as one of the greatest ever made. The experimentation that is present on here is stunning. They seem free and able to do whatever they want which results in one exciting song leading into the next and a thoroughly enjoyable album no matter how many times you listen to it. Another major strength is the instrumental diversity which seems to be an endless list when you first look at it. The performances on these instruments are fantastic as well which results in a rich and detailed listen that is one of the most engaging you will come across. It also means we have loads to explore on here which is probably why it is still being dissected by new listeners to this very day. Then we have the songs themselves with the likes of With A Little Help From My Friends, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, She's Leaving Home and the title track being absolute classics. All of them are catchy and infectious whilst also being full of a lot of musical and instrumental quality. The true masterpiece on here for me however is A Day In The Life. This song has enraptured me ever since I first heard it and it still stuns me with how phenomenal it is to this day. Overall, the influence this record had is huge and it is easy to see why when you look at how amazing the music is making this a must listen record.
After writing off the Beatles as overrated, I recently revisited a lot of their work. I have immense new respect for something like Abbey Road. On the second half of that album I feel like they fleshed out ideas and sounds they started exploring here, although this record is definitely a lot more psychedelic. So whether you enjoy it or not sort of depends on that.
I personally don't, I find it kind of a headache for the most part with some good songs. That said, I respect this album for its contributions to psychedelic and progressive rock.
Haven't listened to this in about a decade. Was maybe my favorite of The Beatles' albums when I was a kid, and yeah. This thing just holds up. Even the fat on this thing is too compelling not to admire.
Nothing to add
The greatest album of ALL TIME
The Beatles proved that they are
miles ahead of everyone else
Doesnt get much better
Another classic by The Beatles! My three favorites are A Day In The Life, She's Leaving Home, and With A Little Help From My Friends.
The 50 year mix really is a joy and makes you see the record in a different light. Ends with one of the greatest tracks in rock. However that George track isn't all that. Saying that seems a bit harsh in the grand scheme. A landmark in music and culture with the most iconic cover art ever and still not anywhere near their best.
