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 91.6/100, a mean average of 90.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.7/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.5.

As soon as the song begins, I feel as though I've just walked into a Middle Eastern opium den. I'm greeted by a leather-clad woman who's holding a whip in one hand and a syringe in the other.

So much going on, from the viola to the ostrich guitar to the BDSM lyrics. Awesome and wierd at the same time!

Such an harsh song, the Velvet Underground always perfectly knew how to create sounds that fit the subjects they sing about.

Velvet puts a lot of scary-sounding chords in the background, and it sounds really unique and beautiful. One of my favorites off the album.

How this is rated lower than Sunday Morning is beyond me.

I thought this was a song about M&S and the leather sale they had on. Seem to remember this over a weird car advert, made by the bloke who later did American History x

Mildly disturbing, but that's the intention for a song about S&M. Great song!
