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)

Fun rocking song, though a little bit campy. But it's an enjoyable, high-energy start to the album.
Great opening track. It does to, Darkness, what, Thunder road does to, Born to run. Now a constant in the Springsteen live set it's in Bruce's all time top ten for me. Great track.
This track is very much like a Bat Out of Hell single.
