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 11% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 78.7/100, a mean average of 78.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.6.

I hate the chorus. A lot. The rest of the song isn't that great either. Mellotron can't salvage this one.

Not a bad song ,but Geddy had not yet developed the wherewithal to pull off a quiet contemplative ballad.

One of my favorite Rush songs of all time. Tears is example what comes pouring down my face when I listen to this song.
