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 tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a mean average rating of 91.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 91.9/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.7.

Epic song... Can't give this less than 100, although the Alchemy live version is even better.

I can't help but being reminded somewhat of Dylan when Knopfler sings. That's a good thing, mind you, I love Dylan. But anyway, this song is probably the best thing Dire Straits ever did. Great rhythm, great guitarplaying.

Such an almost perfect song. Great guitar work, great groove...almost great vocals.
