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 89.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.4/100. The standard deviation for this track is 14.1.

What a brilliant bassline, surely one of the best ever.

I'd happily replace God Save The Queen with this....

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.

always been impressed that Jonny wrote the brass section of this song to sound like a traffic jam
