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 91.7/100, a mean average of 91.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.2/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.2.

man, what a song. what a fucking song. The use of the fibonacci sequence is fucking BRILLIANT. I can't believe they not only incorporated a math formula into the rhythm but made it sound good. Like it's not super obvious, if you listened to this song without the knowledge of the fibonacci stuff it would jusr sound completely natural. My second favorite track from the album only because I relate to "The Patient" so much

This should have at least a 92/100, 91/100 is just too low

Absolutely one of the greatest songs ever. The last few minutes is probably the peak of music

I've heard people say this is the best metal song of the 21st century. I have no objections to that. Personally, this is my 2nd favourite Tool song (behind "Right In Two").

One of the most beautiful and complete songs ever. My pick for best Tool song. A lesson in tension and release.

I believe it to be a alchemetical explaination into the divinity of the whole human condition. Especially, when he uses the four basiic colours of humanity and how we think we're all so different, but in reality we are all the same being looking at life at different angles. "As below so above and beyond I imagine"? That my friends is basic alchemy. Simply the equation that makes One out of three(Mental Spiritual Physical = The Perfected One). The spiral being our very same gentic code (which are the same for gold and the rest of this universe we happen to live in at this present time). Gnostic, in its terminology about embracing the Random. Its the over thinking over analyzing that really separates the body(the base)from the mind(the collective Godhood) until we are nothing more that lead trying to be turned into the Golden Age of Human Perfection that would be ushered in, once we accept our collective Godship instead of our individual devilishment.

It's one of the greatest songs ever made and in fact it's not just a song but an amazing experience.
