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 3% of tracks on This track has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.3/100. The standard deviation for this track is 14.0.

Incredible bass line that drives the song forwards my personal favourite smiths song, simple but energetic riff from Marr and effortlessly delicious lyricism from Morrissey

Really good guitar sound, this song is special in one way, the strong way that drums and the vocals sounds, the scary effects in it, and the soft sound in particular
