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 4% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 81.7/100, a mean average of 81.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.8/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.3.

Apart from in the bridge, Ive always thought that the music does not work with the lyrics. Tonally the two are completely contrasting.

The chorus actually sounds a bit annoying to my ears, but apart from that this track is ok.

The Beatles first venture into peace and love territory. The word, is really a precursor to their own summer of love anthem, all you need is love, and though the lyrics maybe slightly naive, it's still an excellent track, brilliantly delivered, with the whole band on top form. One of the best of Rubber soul's many superb tracks.
