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 88.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

This is their most expansive and experimental album The Beatles have ever created. This is primarily due to the sheer number of genres they go into on this record and it is almost like they are trying to cover the whole of music history in a 90 minute run time. As a result of this, we get a rollercoaster ride of an album that is one of the most interesting and engaging releases of all time. I remember my first time listening to this record and being in complete shock every time I went onto a new song as you really can't predict what you are going to get next. One of the best surprises I got on my first listen was Helter Skelter which is an absolute classic Beatles track with its heavy guitar work and frantic drumming never failing to fill me with energy. There are so many more moments like this that I have with this record but with just how diverse it is going through them all might take all day. Not only is their genres and styles diverse on here but so is the instrumentation with there being so much to explore and analyse. Pretty much all of the instrumentation feels significant as well with all of it serving a purpose and it always suits the style of music they are going for on whatever song these unique instruments show up on. The song writing is also fantastic on here with the range of themes and ideas they go into depth about being seriously impressive. Overall, for a 90 minute record this is extremely consistent in terms of its quality and this is probably the most enjoyable album of theirs to listen to even if it isn't their strongest.
Poster example of the whole being bigger than the sum of its parts.
A monument of ragged, strange, often masturbatory opulence. It's as adventurous as rock music gets, and even for a 90-minute behemoth, it moves at a breakneck pace. For every idea that may not land or inspire, there are a handful more to do the job.
My favorite Beatles album
Fab four album
So incredibly inconsistent, it's hard to listen to. some good tracks, like while my guitar, Helter Skelter, happiness is a warm gun and some more. But for its length, it really sucks
Has a few of their best songs, but I fail to see why its so highly regarded when you have 60s records like Electric Ladyland or Blonde on Blonde that show what a double album is supposed to be. So much of here is filler or mediocre, which I can not say of those Dylan and Hendrix records.
Tons of hits with just a few misses
Best Songs: Back in the USSR, Dear Prudence, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Happiness Is A Warm Gun, Blackbird.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Album of the year. 1968
