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 1% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 91.3/100, a mean average of 90.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.4/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.3.

It's about the effects of human pollution on the Environment 30 years ago. But we've solved all those problems now, right?

One of the best songs on the album.

The only Pixies song I knew was Where's my mind, because of fight club. So a couple of days ago I had YouTube on autoplay, when this song came on. It blew my mind, every Note sounds just so right, and the lyrics are great. One of the best songs I've ever heard.

Indie classic, the guitar and vocal harmony in the chorus is simply irresistible.
