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)

Great vocal. Bet he had a sore throat the day after they recorded it.
Great vocals from Paul. Again, not one of the best tracks on the album however.
Completely and utterly average. This song never left much an impression on me.
Paul's vocals are fantastic on this one.
Great vocal performance. A bit repetitive but still great.
As I said previously I think, Oh darling, is a fantastic song but "one of the most original songs ever" as below? I don't think so.

Possibly the best vocal performance McCartney ever did! Love the doo-wop style, and the staccato guitar in the chorus :)
Oh darling, is a fantastic rock ballad. Similar to the kind of stuff Paul McCartney would record with Wings such as Call me back again. It's a fantastic song, totally underrated and John Lennon once remarked that he thought it was more his kind of song and that he should have sang it. Personally, I don't necessarily agree with that, and I can't see John doing a better job than Paul vocally. Anyway, it's a superb song that gets strangely overlooked. I really don't know why, it's great.
One of the best vocal tracks in Paul McCartney's catalog. Great drumming as well.
