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)

Such a great opening track, it perfectly foreshadows how experimental and different the rest of the Berlin Trilogy would be from other mainstream music of the 70s.
An opening track to a great album. Not a highlight, still a memorable instrumental though.
Beginning reminds me of Dragon Ball Z for some reason :o
A great way to start off the album, and gives many hints on it's contents, with the rocky guitars that would fuel the A-Side, and the cold electronics that would fuel the B-Side. Electronics aren't used that much here, but you can certainly hear them.
A way to begin!
A good beginning instrumental.
