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 tracks can have several thousand ratings)

they were millionaires for a long time but they did not want to share their wealth
Inspired Paul Weller to write a number one.
The lead guitar was absolutely amazing here!

Horrible Mixing on the remastered version
Groovy as hell, awesome riffs and sharp lyrics! The perfect kick-off to a brilliant album :)
For the first(and last time), a George Harrison song kicks off a Beatles album. And what a song it is. It's angry and vitriolic and Harrison is simply scathing about the amount of tax he has to pay in every English pound. It's an extremely powerful start to a stunning album with great lyrics, great vocals from George, and an absolutely blistering guitar solo from Paul McCartney, which all add up to make this a fantastic opener and one of George Harrison's best ever compositions. I wonder if The Jam ever listened to it?
Pure acid rock
A very energetic start to the album!
Direct and strong
