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 87.4/100, a mean average of 86.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.5/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.4.

Probably my least favourite track on the album, though I can still see the appeal.

Good track. Doesn't do as much for me as the others though.

Because is arguably the most vocally beautiful song the Beatles ever recorded. It doesn't get more gorgeous than this. Based on a piece by Beethoven played backwards it's a wonderful creation and one of the genuine jaw dropping moments on the album. Utterly sublime.

One of the most incredible arrangements of vocal harmonies in rock history. Everything about it is ethereal.

I think Queen could have taken a thing or two from it.
