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)

Not my cup of tea and the weakest track on the LP.
Great guitar I always sum the song with the band. It is a earworm
The drum part gets a bit boring after some time but Bonham is still really rocking on this song
Simple 12-bar I-IV-V instrumental with nothing special to recommend it other than it's a fun listen.
I love Bonzo, but drum solos always come off as dry and repetitive if you don't get to watch.
Not particularly creative straight ahead hard rock instrumental, but still lots of fun, largely due to Bonzo on the drum kit.
Even though the album version is great, it's so much better live. Bonham was a legend.
I have to agree that this drum solo released on the studio version is not too impressive. However, the guitar to start and end this song is fantastic I think and it is too bad they did not take that guitar riff and run with it. Probably would have made for a much better song.
Mediocre drum solo at best, he did it way better live. Bonham was a fantastic drummer but it did not lend to an amazing solo in the studio version of the song.
it's a great solo, but i like the Moby Dick/Bonzo's Montreaux version on the boxed set better.
