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)

The way he sings "It's Monday" is one of the stand out moments in all of the Bowie back catalogue.
And that's before we even get to the guitars in the opening 30 seconds; a mash of massive, overdriven chords contrasted with the warm detail of that little downward riff that introduces the drums. What utter, utter genius.
Post-punk or art rock or glam rock ?
