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 91.0/100, a mean average of 90.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.1/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.4.

Can never really pick which Lennon song written about sleep or the lack thereof I prefer between this and I’m So Tired from the White Album.

I’m Only Sleeping is where Revolver really starts dipping into the psych the eventually takes over the record. It’s got a great chord progression and some really great loose playing from the rhythm section.

Tied for my favorite Beatles song with I Want You (She's So Heavy).

I read somewhere that Lennon loved sleeping. I second that emotion.
Introducing the reversed guitar. Lovely!

As a kid I always cranked the stereo up for the trippy distorted guitar tones coming from the sides.

Lazy, trippy and groovy at the same time! Love the bassline and the reversed guitar :)

Alongside, and your bird can sing, and, tomorrow never knows, I'm only sleeping, is another of John Lennon's masterpieces on Revolver. The drony music and drowsy vocals are absolutely perfect for the lyrics and the song is brilliantly executed. The backwards guitars are the icing on the cake. One of the best songs on an album full of great ones.
