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 4% of all tracks on This track has a Bayesian average rating of 81.6/100, a mean average of 81.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.1/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.7.

There's a line in the song where James Mercer writes 'I'm through with riddles'. C'mon I don't think so. Has he read back his own lyrics lately. Anyway another really nice song on an excellent album. Unimaginative standard 4 note Beatles ending but I suspect I'm missing the point.
