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 83.4/100, a mean average of 82.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.5/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.0.

Absolutely LOVE the transition into Mean Mr. Mustard. This is where the medley really begins.

Peaceful, but that slow pacing makes this song pretty boring.

Alright song. Somewhat takes away from the feeling the You Never Give Me Your Money leaves you with.

Nice harmonies (not quite Because level but still nice!), and a chill mellow feel to it :)

Obviously influenced by Fleetwood Mac's Albatross, Sun king, is one of the album's least essential tracks. It's nice enough, with a lovely use of nonsense words, but it slows down the momentum that picked up on, you never give me your money, and the fact that it isn't musically connected to the preceding track leaves a gaping hole in the so called 'medley'. Having said all that, it's extremely pleasant, almost gorgeous in it's delivery, just slightly frustrating.

My least favorite track on Abbey Road. Not bad, but totally forgettable and does not serve any purpose to the medley.

Clearly not a highlight of the album, or even of the medley. Still, it works for me just well, especially the Albatross-styled guitar.

Amazing opening build, the crickets and the mellow guitar conjure images of an early morning before dawn. Voices erupt into layered harmony as the sun rays burst from the horizon. A lonely guitar twinkles and the sun rises in beautiful harmonic vocals. John keeps it light with Italian phrases and the band holds a nice groove throughout.

Good harmonies, very similar to Because
