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 3% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 82.9/100, a mean average of 82.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 14.1.

I love the bells in this song. More amazing instrumentation on this album.
When I was junger I really loved this song. But now the magic kind of faded away. You have to be in the mood for this one.
Yet more evidence of McCartney's compositional genius. A bit twee but so ideal for Pepper.
Sweet little McCartney number as one would expect on a Beatles album. I bet Lennon hated this, but the album would be incomplete without it :)
When I'm sixty-four, had been written(or at least the bare bones of it) before the Beatles had even recorded their first album. It's really the first of Paul McCartney's old time numbers that would also bring us, your mother should know, and, honey pie. The difference between when I'm sixty-four, and those other two songs, is that sixty-four sounds authentic, it sounds sincere, there's no camping it up like there is on the other two tracks, no, when I'm sixty-four is perfect. McCartney's voice is also absolutely perfect, as it is on the whole of the Sgt. Pepper album, and is yet another example of how the Beatles seem to be able to effortlessly crossover genres and styles that seem to be able to cater for all ages, from children to grandparents. When I'm sixty-four, is a superb example of this.
This song has alarming simplicity. I overlooked it at first, but having gone back and listened to it, it's such a great song.
My daughter's favorite song...when she was...4! :)
One of my favorites from The Beatles
It's such an enjoyable song. Not much more to say.
This one is definitely catchy, and it has that malt shop style to it that I'm a fan of.
