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 all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 90.0/100, a mean average of 89.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.4/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.0.

My only complaint about this song is that it's three minutes too long - could have been two-to-three minutes shorter. Otherwise, this might be Zeppelin's best song, and it's easily their most epic.

Their last great epic, but this one can be overrated by hardcore fans occasionally.

Led Zeppelin's finest moment. This is true artistic perfection.

Masterpiece. The whole band shines but Bonham's parts are out of this world.

This song remains the true swan-song of Led Zeppelin. The intricate layering of Jimmy Page who is the general of an army of fully trained Gibsons. Bonzo feels like a war elephant. JPJ guides a thousand galloping horses coming down from a hill side. Plant ties it all together with heartfelt screeches and almost religious monody. A mythical piece of music.

This is the masterpiece of Presence, and obviously by far, and my 4th favorite Led Zeppelin song

Good rhythm, but needlessly long.
