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)

Another song whose influence can be heard pretty much everywhere (the most obvious one being The White Stripes as already mentioned).
There are just some many songs about King David, Bathsheba and Uriah the Hittite (2 Samuel Chapter 11). Why did the Pixies have to record yet another one? I'm beginning to question this band's originality status.
Another good track
Amazing track. Nothing sounds like this on the planet
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.
Not the best on the album, but still a nice track :)
IMO,l it's a bad song done well.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
This sound like White Stripes, Strokes, and the soft dark Pixies side
