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 2% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 85.9/100, a mean average of 85.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.1/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.8.

May have influenced bands in the States in the 90's but this was not really original. Raw punk bands were doing this in clubs in the UK in the mid to late 70's. Pixies fans need to stop worshipping at the altar and start removing those rose tinted glasses. They're good, even very good but they're not Gods.

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.

a lot of first-time listeners would quit listening the album with this song, but the screaming is just perfect.
