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 90.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.2/100. The standard deviation for this track is 14.4.

The mystique of Purple Rain is as equally incredible as the song itself - the fact that no complete studio recording of it exists; the fact that the "ooh's" at the end came about because fans started singing them when it was performed live; the fact that you can hear the crowd cheering every so often; the fact that album version has rhythm guitar performed by Wendy Melvoin, only 19 and on her live debut with The Revolution; the fact that Prince never told us who the song was really written about; the rawness yet warmth of its emotions; the whole image its lyrics conjure up.

Purple Rain is one of the most scintillating and most magical moments in musical history, truly being a song that never, *ever* gets old. A timeless testament to one of the greatest performers the world has ever seen.
