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 This track has a Bayesian average rating of 86.4/100, a mean average of 89.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.2/100. The standard deviation for this track is 8.5.

The opening track ‘Curtains’ really sets the tone for the next thirty minutes. Pretty sure the whole song only contains about 6 chords, and they are simple ones at that, but who gives a shit? The simple chord patterns and structure allows Frusciante’s voice and lyrics to shine through. With a Cat Stevens eske tone Frusciante walks you through his day to day life, he’s a working man, not a reaching man, he’s an outsider, forever looking in with wonder at the lives that the average person leads. The use of his own voice to provide the backing vocals is an interesting choice, but it yields incredible results, the fact that you know that it’s really just him doing literally everything, makes you feel right at home, and gives you hope for the future of the music industry. At least until you listen to a Beyoncé album and find that it took eighty people to make it and it’s still a piece of shit. In keeping with the rest of the song, there is a very simple minor pentatonic solo, but still very enjoyable. This is an incredible song, and it should be listened to by everyone.
