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 3% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 83.7/100, a mean average of 82.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.2/100. The standard deviation for this track is 16.7.

It's good, don't get me wrong, but I feel like they wanted this to be a big rock ballad, and I do like the chorus and lyrics, but it just doesn't resonate with me that much as a song.
