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 BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 90.9/100, a mean average of 90.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.3/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.6.

This is one of the very best of David Bowie’s many masterpieces.
The slinky, lurching groove of the first half mixed with Bowie’s catchy-in-an-ear-bending-way melody (with such creative and cacophonous harmonies!) is unlike any of his other work. The back half feels like a true explosion, in thanks largely to the wonderful arrangement and Bowie’s paranoia drenched bellowing.
This song is monstrous in its monolithic nature. It simply feels like a living, breathing entity.
I absolutely love this song. Send it to Mars.
Well i guess i will have to keep on tryin' cause i don't get the greatness of this yet but i believe that you are all right you know and maybe one day i will feel it to: the genius herein.
Coming off the back of Ziggy only 3-4 years earlier and then dabbled with his Plastic Soul on Young Americans the year before, Bowie continues to shift and weave and deliver something new.
The intro to this song with the gradual build up of guitar riffs counteracting and complementing each other is superb. Followed by the song proper with the introduction of the vocal from the Thin White Duke - great vocal and lyrics. Before we get the third song in one with the melodic and lively "It's too late" section.
This is majestic.
One of Bowie's many, many masterpieces.
"It's not the side-effects of the cocaine; I'm thinking that it must be love."
This is what I consider real progressive rock. Breathtaking transitions.
Every line of this song could be quoted as being some of the best words ever put to music.
And speaking of that music, it's goosebump inducing, superbly original and sounds like nothing else ever released.
Changes pace a lot in the space of one song.
I wasn't sure what to think of the first half.
