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)

songs that are this long usually get boring after three minutes and fill the time with worthless noise but this song is just amazing throughout the whole 9 minutes. the dark angry/sad atmosphere is beautifully created by the layers of guitars and a priceless vocal performance from Brett. the song contains what is probably the best guitar solo by Bernad Butler.
This might be my favourite Suede song. The lyrics, the verses, the chorus, Brett's vocals, Bernard's guitar playing, that quiet portion in the middle... it's all phenomenal.
