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 tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.4/100. The standard deviation for this track is 10.7.

Magic. This is of a mystical and extraterrestrial kind of beauty that I have never heard of later in my life. It is incomprehensible that the entire album only comes in 4th place here.
