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 86.4/100, a mean average of 85.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.7/100. The standard deviation for this track is 14.3.

Really like the song, but what in the world is with the intro? It doesn't fit the song at all, lol. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome, but once you hear the entire song you start to wonder the same thing I did. I guess I'm glad it's there, because it definitely is a really good intro, and one of my favorites.

..One of the best intros ever?
Song doesn't hold up as good as the intro sets it out to be though.

The only flaw with this song is it's overdrawn.

Why is "f-----" (the insult to gays) not allowed on radio but it's allowed on TV? One of the many questions that people may never know...
