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)

One of the greatest ever songs, magical.
I don't think people realize just how good Otis was. This song is just the tip of the iceberg...and it's amazing.
This song gives me chills everytime I hear it. Especially if I hear it unexpectantly. Pure magic. Slow roasted perfection.
