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)

That's it, just one man and his guitar.
Not deep into it, but very, very influential and I recognize that.
When the pink moon is on it's way, it destroys everything it's on it's way. Soft voice and beautifully but hopeless lyrics match together very well.
Such an effective song. I have no idea what a "pink moon" is, but in a short two minutes, Drake turns it into a metaphor for fate itself.
Only song on the album that contains an instrument besides the guitar: the piano. A few high notes spread across the song gives it just an edge. The loniless he coped with found resonance in the song.
Delicate and balanced, the piano compliment really makes this song magical and elusive. Nick's vocals and lyricism are somewhere between youthful wonder and reserved optimism.
It's a good song
