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)

Reading along with the poem in the liner notes while listening to Psalm is a transcendental experience.
The Drums on this 3rd track is incredible.
This is actually my favourite on A Love Supreme. So exciting (in juxtaposition to the other 2 parts of the album) that it strikes you, and so quick but elegantly delivered. My second favourite jazz song, So What being my first.
I didn't like the first part of "Part 3," and "Part 4" was only a little better.
