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)

To me this is a masterpiece and a truly great song. Great melody, great lyrics, a bit of experimentation etc.
I hope that we'll look back on this song as one of Muse's best of what I hope is only a "mid-life crisis".
One of the best tracks on the album. The 5/4 time signature really makes it original, and then at the end the 4/4 drum beat on top of the 5/4 guitar riff sounds really really cool. This song is overlooked because of the album that it's on, but it's actually a great song.

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 :(
