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 92.9/100, a mean average of 91.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 93.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.6.

It sounds like an anthem for the impending end of the world. This is really happening.

Radiohead's greatest song, and to me, one of the greatest songs of all time. Simply breathtaking.

I remember first getting into Kid A and listening to this track, I fell in love with it pretty quickly. My love for this track has only grown with time; It's one of Radiohead's most experimental tracks, but somehow also one of their most intense and engaging. This is one of a very small amount of songs that gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it, the way Thom sings 'This is really HAPPENING" is just so fucking fantastic it blows me away every time. I also saw Radiohead live for the first time a couple days ago, and this song was just un-be-fucking-lievable. I think this one will always be my choice for their best song, and my favorite.

Not quite sure what people see in this. The very weird synth 'sequence is interesting for a minute or two but this song just draaaags.

Just an amazing song. Takes a little getting used to but it really changes the way you look at music.

Idioteque is what solidified my love for Radiohead, with Thom Yorke sounding off a paranoid stream-of-consciousness over an urgent, crackling beat and reverberating, chilling synthesizers. With Thom's urgent vocals (arguably one of his greatest performances) and added effects, the track takes on an almost apocalyptic quality. Incredible live.

I don't see it as one of their best or anything, but I do like the song. It has that apocalyptic feel to it.
