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 89.9/100, a mean average of 89.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.5/100. The standard deviation for this track is 14.0.

This is pinnacle 'Rush' for me. 2112 is up there with their best epics. I love every minute of it. It feels like a journey and it's proggy as heck.

From the opening seconds, with the chilling sci-fi sounds emanating from and an ARP Odyssey synthesizer, leading into a 4 minute long intro (overture - covering themes and motifs of the sections to follow), you just know you're in for something special in this Side A of the Album (20 minute long track). Incredible musicianship, great sounds and hooks, awesome tune and a intriguing story/lyrics (it works for me!) allowing some real showcasing of Geddy's vocals - I very much like the contrasts he gets in "Presentation" between the lyrical (of The Protaganist) and the menacing screaming (of the Priest, Father Brown)

The word "epic" is a massive understatement. This is a mini-rock opera and far better than any of the other overblown examples of the genre.
