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 18% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 78.1/100, a mean average of 77.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.4.

This song was actually supposed to be the first track on the album and the lead single according to Lars. It's not phenomenal, but I believe it's one of Metallica's more underrated tracks especially on this record.

It's an OK song, but not a great one. I just didn't feel anything listening to this one. The lyrics are good though.

Solid heavy song that sounds a bit like it was just included because it fits in the album. Nothing special on its own.
