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 has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 74.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.9/100. The standard deviation for this track is 17.7.

This wouldn't have looked out of place on Face Value but it's given the Genesis treatment here. Well sung and it's played beautifully.

Maybe the saddest Genesis song of all. Only the second song written entirely by Collins, it's clearly heavily inspired by his recent divorce, and the lyrics reflect the painful longing for the days of a united family. Powerful stuff for only his second solo song. Musically, I do think it steps a little too far into cheesy '80s synthpop, undercutting the power of the lyrics, but Banks does deliver a really touching piano performance under all the haze, and Rutherford's bass line is one of the best on the album. If you're into bittersweet '80s pop, this is the song for you.
