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 87.7/100, a mean average of 86.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.1.

Acabo de hacer un comentario sobre "Astronomy Domine", así que ahora me siento en la obligación de hacer otro comentario sobre este tema "Lucifer Sam", mi favorito en el album, ahora en disputa con este anterior.

La intro es genial, un riff de guitarra distorsionado que solo se escucha en un auricular, y luego parece que se materializa pero sigue un poco fuera de sintonía. Ese efecto es ENORME. Gran canción de rock psicodélico. En mi opinión solo estas 2 primeras canciones ya vaticinan un tremendo disco. Otro aspecto que tengo que destacar de esta canción es su solo de guitarra super dinámico donde se añaden muchos instrumentos sobre el riff principal y queda una mezcla loquísima. En fin, es otro super tema y ahora le coloco el 100 que se merece.

SO CATCHY. If they had just released this as a single, we might have had another album from Syd...
