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)

Brilliant voice, brilliant words
"We don't talk much or nothin, but when we talk about somethin we have good discussion." Beautiful opener.
The use of the high pitched voice at the beginning is really unexpected and brilliant. It brings a really weird characteristic in, to open up the album. When Frank's voice starts joining the weird voice, the song just becomes magical. The acoustic guitar is beautiful. The tone of the song is really atmospheric. The lyrics just really make me feel like Frank is lost in this complicated, stressful album. It's the perfect opener. The voice at the end just sounds broken and hopeless. Such a depressing ending.
Right from this point, I knew Blonde was about to become one my favorite albums ever. The tone is set instantly; the mellow melancholy that pours through every moment of this song is utterly delectable, and it carries you away. What an opener.
That auto-tuned ending just cuts me deep...
