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 1% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 94.3/100, a mean average of 92.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 94.5/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 15.3.

When I was a teenager, I used to think the Beatles were overrated and lame. But when I graduated high-school and delved into their catalogue, I realised what an idiot I was. When it hit me, it hit me hard. An incredible band. Three of the greatest songwriters - John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison - in one band. While Ringo Starr is nowhere near the songwriter, he is a sensational drummer. I can't imagine any other drummer besides him in the Beatles.

People laud and deify the post-Help! albums from Rubber Soul to Abbey Road - and rightfully so - but the albums prior to Rubber Soul such as A Hard Day's Night, Please Please Me, Beatles for Sale, With the Beatles and Help! are fantastic as well and are outstanding examples of pop rock. Their musical progression is simply extraordinary, from 60s pop rockers to psychedelic pop masterminds to fully-fledged rock aficionados. To me, The Beatles more than anything represent the 60s.

Not many artists are as critically acclaimed AND commercially successful as the Beatles, especially on the scale they were. And I doubt any artist whether it be in rock, hip hop, pop, country, R&B, etc will ever reach that juncture.

The way The Beatles matured between Help! and Rubber Soul is amazing. They went from 60s pop to some of the greatest love ballads and psychedelic rock songs of all time. BEST ARTIST EVER.

Nothing new can be said about the Beatles anymore. If you go by popular opinion they will always be the one group regarded as the greatest of all time. They are about as close to an objective answer as one can get in response to the question "who/what is the greatest artist of all time" aside from a small number of classical composers. There will most likely never be another band as popular and critically acclaimed.

I've gone through phases of liking others more, but only Dylan has had equal resonance down the decades.

Not really needing too much explanation, The Beatles are likely the greatest band of all time. Their top 5 records are 5 of the greatest records of all time. Even the rest of their top 10 albums are stronger than what most band can put out. Post breakup, each member went on to make some fairly good solo work as well (obviously Lennon's being the best and Ringo's the worst). Even for people who don't like to listen to entire records, The Beatles have written DOZENS of the best songs EVER. nothing short of impressive.
