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 3% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 83.5/100, a mean average of 82.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.6/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.2.

A banger, and very underrated. Those harmonies in the chorus are mind-blowing.

Wait seems to be the forgotten song on Rubber soul. There are plenty of critics of, what goes on, and, run for your life, and the rest are of course classic songs, but, wait, is the one track that seems to get lost in all that other stuff. Originally intended for the Help! album, wait, but left off(for some reason, it's better than a lot of stuff on there), it was resurrected when the band were short of material for, rubber soul. As a song, it's okay, but you can see why it always gets overlooked. Decent filler, nothing less, nothing more.
