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 90.7/100, a mean average of 89.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.8.

Overplayed, but I still enjoy hearing it every time. A defining British indie pop song. Love the performance of this with Coldplay at Live 8

This is the song that put The Verve so much more ahead than any Britpop band before, almost as close as Radiohead. They just didn't have to try to make something real and serious without sounding too hammy or humorous like bands before, not that there's anything wrong with Britpop as a whole, it just acts more as a glam punk genre than what it comes out as. Insipid Beatle ripoffs.

A beautiful song that the Stones wish they still had it in them to make!

Such a great song, I don't think the Rolling Stones could have made it sound this good. Hard to believe the Verve didn't get any royalties for this single.
