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 2% of tracks on This track has a mean average rating of 86.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 86.5/100. The standard deviation for this track is 10.7.

"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'.

Remembers me the first album, one or two songs from it, really good, in some ways too good and powerful
