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 tracks can have several thousand ratings)

This track is rated in the top 1% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 88.6/100, a mean average of 88.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.7/100. The standard deviation for this track is 10.5.

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?
