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 91.8/100, a mean average of 90.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.7/100. The standard deviation for this track is 15.3.

Among the greatest pieces of music ever written, a sublime blend of ugliness and beauty that few artists could conjure. The live version on Swans are Dead ups the ante even more.

After indulging in The Seer and To Be Kind, a song like this just amazes me on how diverse Swans can get with their sounds. This track is definitely one of their best, it almost has to be.
