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 92.2/100, a mean average of 91.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.4/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.3.

Greatest clash song. Greatest punk song. THAT FREAKING BASS LINE! If the rest of the album were as great a statement as this title track this would be among the greatest albums ever. The guitars are terrific here as well.

Clash ultimate moment: ladies and gentlemen, the apocalypse is coming to London, and it's heralded by sinister punk tango.
