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 84.8/100, a mean average of 83.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.0.

I think the Pixies just invented math rock...

Any indie rock song that accuses someone of being a "crazy baby bathsheba" over a metallic, rolling, screeching Joey Santiago guitar riff has to be pretty good.

This sound like White Stripes, Strokes, and the soft dark Pixies side

Reminds me a lot of The White Stripes. Really interesting twists and turns here.
