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)

Such a beautiful song. Amazing piano and builds up to a really cool Chorus breakdown. Lots of emotion pouring out of this track,.
This is almost like a hymn. His vocal is absolutely superb.
A superbly personal track that really pushes the limits of the album's sound, with its low-tempo funk beat and brilliant use of piano to extend Bowie's vocals and words.
Incredibly poetic and deep; a glimpse right into the heart of the Thin White Duke.
