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 2% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 85.6/100, a mean average of 85.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.7/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.1.

Too common to Smells Like Teen Spiris, so, less creative

Interesting song. Cobain takes the point of view of the molester...

Good song, even though a bit repetitive. The backing vocals are the best part.

I really enjoy the acoustic style that Nirvana can take on. I think it suits Kurt Cobain much more.
