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 This track has a Bayesian average rating of 88.5/100, a mean average of 88.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.3/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.6.

First song I ever heard by the Shins so holds a special meaning for me. But putting any bias to one side I still think it is one of their best, probably only bettered by New Slang and Saint Simon. Although..... I'm still not sure.

Definitely not their best song. The verses drag on, and it takes two minutes to get into gear.
