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 91.3/100, a mean average of 90.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.4/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.7.

Kick-ass song, I love the bassline. The only thing I wasn't immediately a fan of about this song is the horn section, it sounds too much like Funhouse by the stooges.

A steady bass groove and trip-hop drums provide a solid groundwork for The National Anthem, only for it to descend into a cacophony of free-jazz madness amidst wailing trombones and screaming trumpets, all while the ondes martenot weaves its way around the song like a UFO. This track shouldn't have worked as well as it does. Not only is it a testament to Radiohead's creativity, but it's also a testament to their razor-sharp focus as well.

When you manage to convey a message without the need for words, that's when you can truly say you are a musical genius.
Congratulations, Radiohead.
