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 89.6/100, a mean average of 89.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.1/100. The standard deviation for this track is 10.7.

The Killers, at least for me are a hit or miss. Their music in general isn't that great. But their really good songs become my favorite songs of all time. "When You Were Young" is a song I love. It's up there with my favorite songs of all time. Not just the lyrics but the music just speaks to me on a very deep level. I just love this.

Faux Springsteen, definitely. But as such it's really not bad at all! Not as good as anything on the first album either.

I don't hear ANY similarities between this and Born To Run"...and anyone who thinks Bruce can't sing has no idea what a good singer sounds like. This is a great song, heavy, exciting. Ok. Maybe that one little run sounds like the Bruce song...but that's it.

Even with a similarity to 'Born to run' I'd take this song anyday of the week, cause I can't stand the boss' monotone, drab voice.
