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)

Not quite sure how you could improve upon this song as is. Phenomenal lyrics, sound-play, production, construction…
Absolutely legendary track. The flute at the end is just wonderful. And the lyrics are dark but brilliant. Even the name of the song is poetic. Just a masterpiece. 100/100
Simply the greatest song of all time!

Such a fantastic song.
Quite simply my favorite song of all time and surely one of the greatest.
A very good song, but there are so many Smiths songs which are just as good as this, eg How soon is now, Rubber ring, Please please.. , panic, Bigmouth strikes again, etc
Not the best smiths song imo. Still a massive tune
