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)

Beautiful lyrics and a wonderful arrangement. Just an amazing song!
I agree wtih strawberry fields. It's my favourite (with the opener) of the album. I'm surprised people rate this much lower than God only knows... guess it depends on music taste and on how iconic they were at that moment.
This is great. The music in the background is really good.
best song on pet sounds... which is saying a lot
