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 BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 86.1/100, a mean average of 85.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.4/100. The standard deviation for this track is 10.0.

I think it's easy to overlook the back half of this album because the front half of it is so good. But "Guiding Light" is a very nice, ballad-like tune that is far mellower than the aggressive songs like "See No Evil" or "Friction". Usually this isn't the first song I think of when I think of Marquee Moon, but the soaring guitar solo reminds me why I enjoy it so much.
