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 91.6/100, a mean average of 90.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.8/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.3.

Plaintive vocals - great guitar work creating an atmosphere of pained emptiness -hypnotic bass line - potentially a great song. Just give me better lyrics.

I don't get the hype. Whenever I listen to this album this song always passes without my noticing.

A beautiful song, the chorus evokes this sense of tragedy with Kim and frank's interchanging wailing simply a perfect song

This is where the interplay between the vocals of Black Francis and Kim Deal shines brightest on Doolittle. Mesmerizing, groovy, and maybe a little creepy. Great bass line, great stuff.

This is the definition of perfect... in Pixie's words at least.
