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 might be Dylan’s most underrated track. It is an absolute beauty.
Nice little blues number :)
Isn´t the greatest song from the album, but still being an awesome song
I only found this track to be decent.
I just love slow blues music like this. Harmonicas are always a plus for me.
