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 2% of all tracks on This track has a Bayesian average rating of 84.5/100, a mean average of 84.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.2/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.5.

Check out black midi's new single "John L" if you get the chance. Sound of the summer.

The music backing this is frantic, fantastic, and has an element of insanity and grandiosity thrown in there, but I think the story it tells lyrically (and in the video) is so, so good. The dark surrealist cultism mixed in with the ridiculousness and comedy of it all is just such an overwhelming combination and its the absolute tits.
