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 3% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 83.2/100, a mean average of 82.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.3/100. The standard deviation for this track is 10.4.

Ok, real talk, why do people think this track is weak? This shit slaps! I love the contrast between the quieter verses and the loud bombastic chorus, and Bowie's vocals here are super solid.

A pretty good song but it's probably the weakest one on the album

Bit of an odd one out. With the strength of Bowie's originals, why did he feel like he needed to include a cover? Same with Hunky Dory.

Not up there with some of the others on the album, but still a decent song.

The chorus is not nearly as intriguing as the verses.
