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 3% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 82.3/100, a mean average of 81.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.6/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.4.

What a dull and boring opener. It's such a dreary track to start an album of with and I actually think it was the first single released from the album. Inexplicable. Poor song.

Quite an estranged song. Nice and soothing. Plus, the song has a sound different from other groups, so I expect no less from the rest of the songs on this album. So Far Away is a cool song, but it gets repetitive at the end.
