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 all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 89.9/100, a mean average of 89.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.1/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.8.

This is probably my favorite VU song. It's not one I immediately got, but it's more infectious than the common cold.

One of the coolest, grittiest and most urban rock songs ever made. Astounding.

A great chugging number full of all the grit and edge of New York in the late sixties. A guy goes to Harlem to score and doesn't get a great reception from some of the locals who at least one of them accuses him of trying to take their women away. The first of Lou Reed's many great New York songs.

It's a simple riff, but it gets varied a lot as the song goes on, and it sounds very pretty. I especially like the bass at the end. :)

This track has a flow going, but it was a little too long, and that's coming from a 4-minute track by a band that makes seven minute tracks.

Musically simple, but it's very eery that the song sounds so happy when it's about heroin..
