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)

Top 10 best songs ever. Simple beautiful
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.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
