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)

"Your daydreams are forever, you better get your shit together for a new game," cries Bob Mould in this loud, explosive rocker that expresses great cynicism about the banality of small-town life. A characteristically loud and grungy song that provides perhaps a template for what grunge would sound like a decade later.
