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)

The best Clash song IMO, very good lyrics. Amazing atmosphere, so much ahead of its time, this song could be released in 2020 and it would not sound dated.
I get a real 80's vibe from this song. A very innovative sound for 1979!
A go-to for whenever I go shopping
In my opinion, this is the best song from this fantastic record
estilo Post punk
Great song about consumerism. The perfect consumer in capitalismistan :'I'm all tuned in, I see all the programmes, I save coupons from packets of tea...', but completely lost!
One of the best off the album
Every time I am going to the supermarket I remember this song...
