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)

A lazy tenor saxophone is a lovely backdrop to a song called "Grapefruit Moon." And I can't help loving that little astronomical detail that on the night of a full moon, you won't see much more than "one star shining." I don't doubt for a second that Tom Waits is the kind of guy who spends a lot of time in the moonlight.
