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)

Pretty, pretty, good.
I probably listened to this song everyday since I found it around a year and a half ago my band covered this exquisite masterpiece from Radiohead. I can not even get into it. This song poisoned me at first, I listened to it because my friend had mentioned it to me and I didn't think much of it the first time I listened to it. In fact I listened to it only about two times and I took a break for about 2 days but it was stuck in my head and I had almost completely forgotten what song it was because I listen to a lot of music and I found it and haven't stopped listening to it since.
Still my all-time favorite song. The lyrics and schizophrenic atmosphere speak to a timely mood that has remained relevant all these years later, instrumentation is off the charts, and the musical ideas are pretty wild despite how accessible this song is, and never once does it overstay its welcome, but it isn't over too soon, either. It pulls from the best of every world, making it one of the masterpieces of art rock, let alone the best thing Radiohead's ever done. Easiest 10/10 I can ever give.
I think it is a really good song, but might be overrated on this site. I won't put in the top 10 for me.
Good at all but not The best Song ever
This song is the perfect mix of Radiohead. It feels like they've taken a little bit of every one of their albums and mixed it together to make this song.
One of the few Radiohead songs with at least one guitar solo, and it's dang good. It's such a magnum opus of a song, but honestly, 90 percent of their work is just that, but at least for this song, it's one of their best. It's really progressive and just out of this world, and it's one of those songs where I hear different sounds and instruments the more i listen to it, I just love it so much.
If I had to choose one song that I had to listen to for the rest of my life, it would be this one. I never get tired of it.
I came here to see if I was the only one that saw this song as Radiohead's Bohemian Rhapsody... looks like I'm not the only one!
This is a perfect song. So many layers to it
