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 92.0/100, a mean average of 90.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.2/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.0.

"I am un chien andalusia." It's pretty hard to argue with that ironclad logic. I really have no idea what Black Francis is getting at here, nor do I know what a debaser is, aside from the obvious: one who debases. What I do know is that this song has one hell of a catchy riff, and it's a great introduction to one of rock music's wildest gibberish fests.
