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)

One of my favorites on this record. It's Slowdive's fastest song by a wide margin, yet feels every bit as intimate as powerful as their early work. It distantly reminds me of the Cocteau Twins.
I think this is my favorite song of the album. It's so addictive and simply beautiful. The way the voice fades in and out just gets me every time. The lyrics may not be very unique but they hit home very hard.
