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 84.6/100, a mean average of 83.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.8/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.7.

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

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
