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 1% of tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a mean average rating of 88.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 89.3/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.5.

Amazing song... It tosses and turns and grows like a post-rock track...The initial dark and beautiful chord progression before Mike Joyce's dramatic drum-entrance is an amazing moment.

Then, Marr creates some shoegaze of his own, years before My Bloody Valentine or Slowdive, with his gorgeous backward-recorded drone solo which hijacks the final two minutes of the song.

Dark, vivacious and delivered with superb form, Morrissey and Marr reached new levels with this song. It's certainly one of their best works, and a stellar song in its own right.

Probably one of the best tracks Morrissey and Marr has ever written. I just love the instrumentation and the vocals from Mozza, it creates this hauntly beautiful track

OMG, 6 seconds of soft acoustic guitar and then, TUN TUN TUN TUN, I repeated that part at least 5 times, incredible the drums in this song sounds incredible, his voice sounds a little bit awesome than the rest of the songs, I´m listening to, a masterpiece
