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 4% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 82.2/100, a mean average of 81.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.5/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.6.

Yeh, good country folk rocker. Second song on the album dealing with guys not having a great time with the ladies.
Lyrics are in direct contrast to the happy clappy true love songs of their earlier writings. The mid secion harmonica and guitar solos are poor and let down a really good song.
The first of John Lennon's Bob Dylan inspirations, I'm a loser, is a kind of country folk rocker. It's also the first of Lennon's 'cry for help' songs, almost self loathing in it's delivery, still, it's a fine song and another step towards the more interesting music to come.
My favourite countryish effort by The Beatles. Lennon's gritty vocal at its early stage. Great lyrics for that period, too.
Harmonica is definitely the best part of this song. The guitar solo mediocre.
