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 93.6/100, a mean average of 92.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 93.7/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.7.

I don't get it. It sounds forced. The instrumental break in the middle is arbitrary rather than organic. If God Only Knows than it logically follows than no one knows. Don't Worry Baby is far and away a better song.

So beautiful, I can't see how anyone cannot be moved by this. The melody is absolutely sublime and is easily one of the loveliest songs ever written. Having said that, the narrator of the song obviously finds it incredibly hard to express himself(opening line, 'i may not always love you') but in truth it's the music that makes this song so special, and the song title itself is easily the most important part of the lyrics, basically saying that words and actions alone are not enough to express how much someone can love somebody else. All in all, just about perfect.

Probably the most beautiful song ever written and I'm not sure that anything will ever come close (maybe VU's Pale Blue Eyes or The Beatles' Here, There and Everywhere). More haunting the more you hear it, a quality shared by Surf's Up to a stronger degree. It's just great.
