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 3% of all tracks on This track has a Bayesian average rating of 82.9/100, a mean average of 83.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.6/100. The standard deviation for this track is 9.8.

For me the album takes a slight dip after New Slang but what a resoundingly beautiful end to the album with this song. Dealing with goodbyes' to loved ones in its many guises makes it such an appropriate ending. The french horn emphasises the melancholic tone in the mid section and as the song gently drifts away towards the end.
