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 90.9/100, a mean average of 90.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.1/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.6.

Just a great love song. A prime example of Dylan’s voice being able to convey emotion as well as much more accomplished singers.

I couldn't disagree more with the first comment. The song is so much more complex than its seemingly cheesy chorus. Each verse describes a kind of love which isn't meant to be due to various reasons (death, war, etc) but in spite of this the reason to be together is simple "I Want You". So while on first listen this song might come across as either sweet or corny, its very bittersweet throughout.

After years of not quite getting Dylan, his genius suddenly becomes all too clear!

I wonder if this is his catchiest song ever. Unlike the previous two commenters, I love it!
