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 2% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 83.7/100, a mean average of 84.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.9/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.9.

My absolute favourite Xtc song. From the tone of that strummed acoustic guitar in the opening bars this tune just carries me to a good place. (Not to be confused with the reworked version they did for the American market which isn't as good as this album version in my opinion).

It's a shame that this is only half a classic album or it would be there up there in my top ten but I don't think half a classic album is enough. Side one is excellent except for the final track and the opener on side two 'Reel by real' is great but the rest of the album falls a bit flat for me.
