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 92.5/100, a mean average of 90.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.7/100. The standard deviation for this track is 16.8.

A lot of people seem to believe that Pusha T's verse here brings down the song, but in my opinion it elevates it. The whole song is Kanye speaking about how he's terrible with women and struggles to form healthy romantic relationships. The chorus goes "You've been putting up with my shit for way too long" "Let's have a toast to the douchebags, let's have a toast to the assholes, let's have a toast to the scumbags". I believe Pusha T's verse is meant to be from the perspective of one of the douchebags, assholes, and scumbags that the chorus refers to, which is why it's so crude and vulgar. As for the rest of the song, there's nothing that I can add that hasn't already been said. The single note piano, the fuzzy bass, the thumping drums. And then those last three minutes; the beautiful vocoder solo backed up by those grandiose strings. It's one of the highlights of Kanye's career. What else can I say, it's Runaway by Kanye West.

Possibly one of the best rap songs of all time. The autotune finale and the piano make this one of the most memorable pieces of music of the 21st century.

I want to love that Pusha T verse so much!!! but it just wouldnt happen. The song is still way wayyy too good to be anything less than a perfect 100.

The autotuned incoherent part is a career high!

One of the best songs of all time. From the first time I heard it I knew this was something else, and usually, it takes time for me to appreciate a song. Just perfect.

I really want to give this a 100, but Pusha T's verse is too bad to be ignored. It's almost as if he didn't even listen to the rest of the song: it's completely irrelevant and unnecessarily crude and sexual. I've heard some argue that it's in there for comic relief, but I think that the second verse serves much better as comic relief for the track, as it's crude and sexual while still playing into the theme of the song: Kanye admitting his weaknesses. Pusha T's just doesn't contribute anything whatsoever. Apart from that one bit, this is a perfect track.
