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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.9/100, a mean average of 75.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

78.6

Definitivamente muchas de las canciones de este album merecen mayor puntaje. Me rompe el corazón ver a You Really Got a Hold On Me (en mi opinión mejor cover que Money), con el puntaje de 78. Personalmente le doy 95. Esa es mi favorita de este album, seguida por All I've Got to Do y All My Loving. Es continuamente citado como el peor album de los Beatles, y no podría precisar si comparto o no ese punto de vista, pero si es el peor de The Beatles, qué genial album sería tenerlo en su repertorio para cualquier otro grupo musical. Seguro que tiene varias fillers como uno de los early works de la banda, y aún así tiene mi cariño y respeto.

Underrated by Beatles fans imo, the production and songwriting is far better than their debut. The covers are pretty great too.
Best song(s): It Won't Be Long; All I've Got to Do; All My Loving; Don't Bother Me; Please Mister Postman; Not a Second Time

It Won't Be Long still gets stuck in my head... and I haven't heard the song in years.

Great for its time and still super enjoyable today (the exuberance of youth). There is magic in this music. And yes, I agree with one of the previous posts: "Not a second time" gets nowhere near the attention it deserves, maybe not even by the Beatles themselves who rush-recorded it and never revisited it (great use of it in Stephen King's book "Doctor Sleep" though, but totally absent from the movie adaptation).

Best tracks: It Won't Be Long, All My Loving, Please Mr. Postman
Worst tracks: Don't Bother Me, Little Child

When put up against other albums the group would release in the coming years, With the Beatles comes up short. However, when judging it based upon their contemporary's releases throughout the sixtees, it still stands as a great album! A few mundane tracks here and there, but the Lennon-McCartney songwriting prowess still shines here.

There is only one song on this album that I liked
And that is All My Lovin.
I did not like their cover songs.

This album is I think their weakest but I also give it 90 points. So it is not so bad but has a lot of cover songs but the Beatles can do cover songs also great.
