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 90.2/100, a mean average of 89.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.8/100. The standard deviation for this track is 16.3.

Still not exactly sure, but I think this might be one of the most complex and most profoundly beautiful songs I've heard in my entire life. A freakin' piece of art!

Emily carries some of the most beautiful lyrics I've ever heard. That's all you really need to love this song, along with JN's voice.

"Emily" is a twelve-minute a trip through a beautiful dreamscape built from vivid imagery and Dylan-quality lyrics.

"And my clay-colored motherlessness rangily reclines. Come on home, now! All my bones are dolorous with vines."

"The meteorite is what causes the light, and the meteor's how it's perceived. And the meteoroid is a bone that's devoid of the fire that propelled it to thee."
