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 91.6/100, a mean average of 90.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.8/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.2.

I did not like this song until I saw Apocalypse Now. Since then, I love it.

Not much to say about this epic that hasn't already been said. 11:43, yet not a second wasted. From the atmospheric keys, the haunting guitar riffs, the subtle drumming and Morrison's powerful, sensual barritone voice, this song has it all. And the best part? You don't need to be high to enjoy it.

This song just builds up incredibly. It's mesmerizing, scary, beautifull and a perfect closer. Perhaps the most fitting closer I ever heard on an album.

I think "The End" is the best composition in the history of rock music. In my opinion, there's nothing that could be compared with this masterpiece. Hypnotic, dreamlike, orgasmic, majestic & disorienting (in the positive meaning), "The End" seduces the listener and does never leave him. Music sends shivers down the spine (Remember! Queen "Bohemian Rhapsody" :D). The lyrics are something I can't explain (Pink Floyd style, "Lucifer Sam" :D "That cat has something I can't explain"). Maybe Jim Morrison is one of the best poets of the last 50 years, though he was inspired by several poetic sources. In spite of everything his style is unique and unmistakable and he's one of my favourite writer of verses.

As one of the comments said more than just a song. And Jim's life and end was testimony to the song. Although ironically there actually is no end as Jim continues to live and breath in me, and countless others around the world, every day. My 2 year old son actually looks a bit like him and his hair is almost the same except blonde. Pray that he stays that way and likes his music!! So Jim, in the end, it was just the beginning.

A beautifully tragic nihilistic epic, much more than just a song.
