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 90.8/100, a mean average of 90.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.2/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.8.

I thought it started out bland but then it comes in with the 6/8 time or whatever and becomes a ton more interesting

"Stay out super late tonight..." is there any other more fitting opening line for this album?

Beautiful. I like how the song builds up: it starts as a slow ballad with interchanging piano chords and a baritone voice reminiscing Leonard Cohen. It gradually builds up with a jazzy/funky rhythm section added. A horn section is added towards the high point as the song comes to a quick close, leaving you expecting more. This the point where you rewind and listen again.
