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 92.5/100, a mean average of 91.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.7/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.5.

Chocou o mundo quando foi tocada. Mais uma vez o Rolling Stone levava o rock para lado perigoso, demoníaco, que tanto o marcou. Incrível!

Based on, the master and margharita, a brilliantly surreal novel by the Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov, Sympathy for the devil, is arguably the Rolling Stones greatest ever song. Mick Jagger takes the premise of the novel of the devil being present at, and responsible, for some of the world's most tragic moments, from the Bolshevik revolution to the Nazi's blitzkrieg's to the Kennedy assassinations. Jagger is at the top of his game here and this is his probably his greatest ever set of lyrics. Keith Richards' blistering guitar solo and the 'whoo whoo' backing vocals also add to the brilliance of the track. In the history of rock this is what you call absolute perfection.

Fantastic! My only gripe is the somewhat clumsy wording in the chorus.
