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)

Absolutely fantastic, this song represented what Rock 'n' Roll was to me as a kid.
One of the greatest songs of all time.
The perfect protest song. Fogerty sounds pissed off, and his guitar snarls perfectly throughout.
Cool song. I've been trying to get more into CCR.
One of my fav CCR of all time.
