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 way the Ry Cooder style slide guitar gives way to the piano is just brilliant too.
The lyrics are just heartbreaking, it's probably my favourite song lyrically ever. The final lyric of "She will suffer the needle chill, she's running to stand still" followed by the harmonica... it's just beautiful - 100/100
My favorite song of the album.
Perfectly imagined and executed. One of the reasons why U@ is great.
I crying a lot when I see that song live. Perfect!
The Joshua Tree starts with U2 standards...then this track blows you away. stunning!
Really powerful track
