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)

My favorite part of this song? Kim's background uh-huh's.
Inspired so many songs after this album
If I'd never heard the Pixies before, and if this were the first song of their that I heard, I'd wonder what sort of pixies would make the maniacal howling, wailing, screaming sound that Black Francis makes on this song. It's fantastic, of course.
Love the dynamics of this track :)
a lot of first-time listeners would quit listening the album with this song, but the screaming is just perfect.
The drums are so good! Really does it for me!
Talk about aggression.
There´s no words for this song,shouts, guitars, bass, drums, good
Vocals are quite hard
