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)

A great catchy opener of the album.
The song that initiated a whole generation of Rush fans, and rightfully so. It has suffered some overplay, but that doesn't diminish it's greatness. This is the quintessential Rush song.
A brilliant and legendary prog track. Always fun to play along with the drumtrack, be it on real drums or your own air drum kit. A wall of sound pouring out of these 3 guys.
With this I finally got prog rock and it's beauty. Thank you rush
Quirky, angular, crisp, lots of fun.
How does this track only have the average rating of 86/100? It's one of the greatest song of all time!
It's great to begin with one of their best songs.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
