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 91.0/100, a mean average of 90.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.6/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.6.

For me this is just the gold standard. Simply the greatest song ever written, and the performance here is just timeless. He credits the lyrics partly to the Heavens. And that is warranted.

If I made this song, I would brag all the time about it, perfect song, probably in my top time of all time.

Discovered it way before I became familiar with pop music through Donnie Darko... Never fails to amuse me.
