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 1% of all tracks on This track has a Bayesian average rating of 88.3/100, a mean average of 88.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.5.

Great track. I don't think they needed so many repetitions of "lunacy" of the childhood lyric. This could have been a 4 minute track.

This starts strong with an epic intro that reminds easily of their previous album My father will guide me up a rope.
And continues with a haunting extremely distorted guitar, at the end of it...
A child-like voice repeats: The childhood is over
How strange
