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)

"While I'm writing in my bed, I think about life and I think about death...and neither one particularly appeals to me!"
Brilliant lyrics. One of Marr's most convincing excursions into rockabilly music and a highlight off 'Meat is Murder'.
Some of the best lyrics ever written.
Remembers me the first album, one or two songs from it, really good, in some ways too good and powerful
