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)

Version of Joy Division is much more better
R.I.P. Joy Division and hello New Order!
Potent, melancholic discontent underlines Ceremony's lonely and searching lyrics, complimented by an excellent mix of both rounded and distorted guitar playing that only extends the emotional content of the song.
It's packed with longing, tinged with sadness and balanced with bright notes and that excellent, uneven drum beat. Songs this well crafted very rarely come about, which contributes to this song's most important factor: it's truly something special.
Quite simply one of the best singles ever released, and a staple of the New Order discography.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
