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 3% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 83.2/100, a mean average of 82.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.5/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.0.

This is another track I don't dig. Worst track of the record. Bad closer.

Awesome track! This is Neil's best exposition of his pro-Rand period. Everyone, especially Geddy, delivers this one in very brash but convincing fashion. A fantastic tune in every way!

I'd have to say that technically this is one of Rush's most underrated tracks. Very great instrumental work.
