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 2% of all tracks on This track has a Bayesian average rating of 86.2/100, a mean average of 85.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.9/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.1.

This song is so much sadder when you consider that Adam and Mr. Jones fell completely out of touch.

I hadn't listened to Counting Crows until a few weeks ago, but had a preconceived notion that they'd be mindless 90's garbage. But wow, this song is fantastic, hahah. Great music matched with thoughtful and ubiquitous lyrics.

Great song about a deep seated desire we all have inside us.
