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 87.9/100, a mean average of 87.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.2/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.6.

One of his greatest songs
Yeeeessssss - this could be Bowie's best vocal performance. Who would imagine that someone would trump Nina Simone? Play this at my funeral and I'll be happy to go up in smoke.
Amazing take on this song. Thanks, David.
Over sung? Too heavy? Ohh no. Not at all.
This is the only way Station To Station could have ended, ultimately showcasing the troubled undertones of the album in all their glory.
And good lord, isn't his voice just f*cking incredible on this track. A feast for the ears.
Only on my fifth or so full listen of Station to Station, but this song is probably my favourite of the album
