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 87.4/100, a mean average of 86.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.7/100. The standard deviation for this track is 15.0.

Sounds like a combination of the best parts of six songs. The "you're a vegetable" part is spine-tingling.

Insanely groovy and catchy. Fun fact, this was the song I heard playing on the radio when I first turned it on the day that he died, and for that it holds a special place in my memory.

You can just feel the soul and groove Miheal Jackson was exposed when he was young and was signed by Motown

Such an incredible and infectious beat thru out, much like 'Billie Jean'.
