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)

Another sweet track on this great album!
Very sweet lyrics but this is probably the worst sounding song on here, which is to say that it still sounds great.
This song reached out and took a hold of me the first time I moved away from my home. 800 miles away and I would "...lay there alone and dream..." Like most of Pet Sounds, great lyrics that anyone can relate too even if you didn't "...pack up and split for the city..." Probably my favorite Mike Love vocals and is a very guitar oriented song which as a guitarist I really enjoy!
I love the instruments.
Simple rhymes. The lyrics are easy to relate to.
As great as this song is, it doesn't quite meet its full potential. I think it would work better if it were longer and had a more decisive ending.
