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 4% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 82.1/100, a mean average of 81.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.6/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.0.

You know, I've been really conflicted on new St. Vincent, and I think this song really encapsulates what bugs me about her last two albums: They're so obnoxiously up their own asses, so blindingly sardonic that I long for the clever turns of phrase of her first three albums. And I get that this is a matter of expectations, but I also don't know why someone with such a wry sense of humor wrote a song about a phenomenon that has been going on for decades with such a lack of imagination.

I actually like the lyrics and concept here. Not feeling the "pills pills pills" hook. There's some interesting things musically here just the hook is too distracting from anything that would give me overall net enjoyment. The last third is great though! Does it compensate for the rest of the track? A little bit.
