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)

A pretty good song but it's probably the weakest one on the album
Good song, sadly the weakest off Ziggy
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.
Soft, creative and well writed, it couldn´t be better
Anthemic, yeah, but not very interesting.
Pretty cool anthem-like song.
