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 2% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 84.9/100, a mean average of 84.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.2.

Not the strongest in terms of songwriting/melody, but it is a good bit of fun with some odd sounds like the kazoos and the piano solo in the middle. The vocal harmonies are impeccable as always though.

Might be one of the weaker tracks on the album, but a very nice song when viewed on its own :)

Like, She's leaving home, Lovely Rita, is another one of Paul McCartney's 'kitchen sink' numbers from the Sgt. Pepper LP. Unlike, Leaving home, though, Rita, is a much more humorous affair, especially the moment when the narrator is awkwardly sat in between his meter maid date and her over protecting sister. Again, the lyrics are fantastic, and McCartney brilliantly captures the time and place, as he does on the rest of the album. Lovely Rita, is a great track, a musical picture postcard of the sixties.

Probably the weakest track, although it's decent. I can certainly admit it's fun lyrically, but the musicianship didn't quite come together.
