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 88.8/100, a mean average of 87.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

This Beatles-album took me the longest time to really appreciate. But it really keeps on giving!

After years of being a Beatles fan I think this is my favorite album. This album is full of so many different ideas and influenced so much in the future. It seems like every time I revisit this, I end up in love with a different song each time. It is in now way as cohesive as their other works, but the collage of ideas makes it wonderful from track to track.

Promediar este album fue uno de los procedimientos más tediosos que he realizado para publicar un comentario en BestEverAlbums. Este album es una joya. Es el mayor placer para los fans de The Beatles, pues es su album oficial con más canciones. Tiene canciones gigantescas como While My Guitar Gently Weeps, y otras espantosas como Wild Honey Pie, que fueron experimentos de los Beatles. No se puede negar la calidad del album por unos pocos temas que no son muy agradables.

Si me preguntarían, creo que este album resume muy bien el estilo de los Beatles. Claro, le faltan canciones que representen sus inicios, desde Please Please Me hasta Beatles for Sale para ser precisos, pero el resto de su discografía está bien representada por este album. Temas que oscilan desde el rock pop hasta el hard rock, desde géneros "soft" como la balada y el country, hasta géneros experimentales como el avant-garde e incluso el genial blues de Yer Blues, género que tampoco desarrollaron tanto a lo largo de su carrera. Podría seguir, desde el music hall de mi placer poco reconocido como lo es Honey Pie hasta lo más hard de lo hard del proto-metal de la grandiosa Helter Skelter.

Como siempre respeto el promedio de las canciones, este album se queda en un 85/100 por algunos temas que he calificado muy bajo para mi gusto personal como Wild Honey Pie o Revolution 9. Sin embargo, estoy seguro que cada uno de los artistas de rock que vinieron después de 1968 le tienen un enorme respeto a el White Album y a su inmenso legado a la historia de la música. Simplemente los Beatles.

Not a perfect album, but certainly unique. The core of the album is not in its singles, but with the hidden jems that are Happiness, Martha, Tired, Guitar, Monkey, etc.

Great album, has the best and worst Beatle songs on it. Revolution 9 is hated too much, it's okay for what it's trying to be. Very enjoyable album.

Just like The Wall, it's a flawed masterpiece, it wouldn't be the same if any of the so called "filler" was missing.
