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 mean average rating of 91.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 92.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.2.

Emotional high point of an already emotional album. Bold and daring, it builds so well towards that absolutely phenomenal ending. Lyrically, the almost chant-like repetitiveness of the verses help to hammer home its twisted underlying message, perfectly contrasted with the duelling voices of the chorus. It's not just one of the best rock songs ever, but also one of the most dramatic.

Did you know Buckingham can really play like that? One guitar that sounds like two. And Rolling Stone says he's the 100th greatest guitarist out of 100. Ha! That magazine mocks, not rocks.

One of the high points of the album. Three singers gives it a really great sound that doesn't appear anywhere else on the album.
