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 92.7/100, a mean average of 91.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 93.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.6.

Green Day blatantly ripped off the guitar sound of this song for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams."

Really great and original but it could definitely benefit from losing a minute or two.

The best thing The Smiths ever did due to one of the greatest guitar sounds on record. Amazing
