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 6% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 80.6/100, a mean average of 79.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.9/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.8.

Sounds like a precursor of what was to come on "Fear of Music" to me. Fear of Warning Sign? I don't know, worth a shot. One of my favourites on this album.

I like the sort of psychedelic sound on this one
