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 has a Bayesian average rating of 73.5/100, a mean average of 72.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.4/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.6.

'This is the weak track, let's give it to Ringo to sing'. A precedent is set to be repeated time and again.

This one was written for the US girl group The Shirelles, but the Beatles apparently didn’t consider the song’s lyrical connotations when they decided to cover it. I like how confidently Ringo sings these goofy lyrics, and I like the energy George provides throughout the track with his guitar, but there is no denying that this one is tied with ‘Chains’ as the worst track on the album.

The campest song the Beatles ever recorded. Originally a hit for girl group The Shirelles, the fab four decided to record it for their debut album, please, please me. Usually when bands covered songs that dealt with a certain gender, they tended to change the lyrics to accommodate the sex of the vocalist, as the Beach boys did when they covered, then I kissed him(changing it to, then I kissed her). The Beatles do no such thing, and Ringo quite happily sings about boys being such, 'a bundle of joy'. Enjoyable track all the same.
