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)

I'm sure this song is one of the reasons why many people, decades later, still don't know quite how to feel about the album Tusk as a whole. With its vaguely tribal-sounding rhythm and John McVie's funky bass, this sounds precious little like the Fleetwood Mac of Rumours, or even of the rest of Tusk. But taken on its own merits, this is an incredibly fun, groovy, cathartic dance song. Check out the great covers by Kopecky Family Band and the Crystal Ark, too.
