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 artists can have several thousand ratings)

This artist is rated in the top 2% of artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.1/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 16.1.

As Beatle he is a 100/100 but as solo artist for me a 90/100

Decades of making music, some of the best songs of all time, influenced thousands of musicians, never stops making good music , LEGEND

Like all the Beatles with no exception, amazingly strong as a solo artist/ band leader. But even more so than the other three given the circumstances: John dead at 40, George pursuing other interests beside music (and now deceased too) and Ringo being more of a musician per se than a creator/ songwriter(good records too though).

A huge talent. His contribution to The Beatles has sealed his place in history. His solo output is variable, but there are some fantastic songs that don't quite get the attention they deserve. A British icon.

I think I kind of said it well before, like 90% agree with what I said before, but will say as a solo artist (which this page technically is of), I wouldn't put him in my top 10 solo artists.

Having said that, as a bassist and a musician, and singer (dude has one of the best voices in rock, imo... he does that early rock n' roll howl so well, but then has this very british chillness to him as well), he is pretty fantastic. Solo work is good, but not as good as Beatles, and not as good as my favorite solo artists. I think that synergy he had in the Beatles did him well, even if at the end it was a negative one.

while most artists his age have long become stale (what was the last decent album made by the stones?), McCartney still makes great, relevant music.
I agree, along with the late great Bowie and Zappa, a league of his own.

Paul McCartney is amzing!
I love all his solo albums (and of course Beatles-albums)
I saw him live in June, wich was a great performance, even though he is already 73 years old.
My favourite albums are Flaming Pie, Tug Of War and Ram.

A genius with the Beatles, inconsistent as a solo artist. Disappointing.
