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)

One of the best songs to close an album I've ever heard.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Slow down, what a way to end an album.
Such a great ending song to an outstanding album, I feel like this song still doesn’t get enough love though. Anyway, it’s still gets a 100/100 because it’s such a sweet song even though Thom Yorke is saying “Idiot! Slow down!”
A fitting end for a masterful album. I love the song very much.
One of Radioheads best tracks for sure. It's like a glacier, slowly moving but still crushes everything that gets in its way. When Jonnys guitar blends with Thoms voice towards the end time is standing still
that final ding on the triangle let's you know the journey has ended, the trance is over; you can go back to your normal life; incredibly thankful that you just happen to exist within a universe where you are witness to the magic that this album is
Very ironic that a song about moving too fast is so delicately paced.
Brilliant ending to a brilliant album!
I always think this song sounds like what it would feel to know the world is ending. The constant, unvarying background sound of this song completely and effortlessly conveys the image of time stopping - literally carrying Yorke's words of 'Slow Down' - while the guitars help to add tension, and the choirs finish it off by creating the feeling of a finality.
I would happily die to this song. Or at least have it played at my funeral. It is one of the best closers to an album of all time.
Controversial opinion: alongside Karma Police, this is probably the best song on the album. Certainly one of the best album closers ever.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
