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, while also being incredibly chilling. A haunting song, that is without any doubt one of the best on the album.
Is it heavy-handed? Yes. Does that make it any less gorgeous? No.
The two best tracks on the album go back to back and this one features one of Stevens' best vocal and lyrical outings.
Chills literally every time
It is heartbreaking and intriguing. A wise perspective on a terrifying man. The song is scary and emotional.
The way he matched the tone of his guitar to the story is just incredible- A flawless song. Everything about the song is haunting yet blissful- frightening yet beautiful. Beyond words.
The part where his voice goes really high and he sings "Oh my God" is so beautiful.
Powerful haunting stuff. Beautiful lyrics and beautiful songwriting
