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 91.4/100, a mean average of 90.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.6/100. The standard deviation for this track is 10.5.

Although not exactly psychedelic to go with much of the album - this is a truly wonderful tune

The trumpet solo in the middle is the best. Also the horn arrangement. Also the vocal, and the lyrics and...

The best song on this album. Great melody and even some harmonies for a change. No need for drugs to enjoy this one!

Paul McCartney's brilliant ying to the yang of John Lennon's Strawberry fields forever. McCartney's wide eyed optimism dominates this wonderful track and with his and Lennon's different personalities truly shining through at this point, Penny lane, with Lennon's darker Strawberry fields forever, on the flip side of a double-A sided single, is the most perfect example of this on all of the Beatles releases. Stunning melody, brilliantly surreal lyrics and a fantastic production help to make this one of Paul McCartney's greatest ever songs.
