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 89.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.5/100. The standard deviation for this track is 14.3.

This song perfectly encapsulates the rest of the album. Good guitar work, decent song writing, interesting lyrics. The vocals are fine and then suddenly murder your ears with shrill whining that completely ruins the whole song. I have far less tolerance for trash vocal performances than most people here I guess.
brilliant track, opens the album perfectly, definitely a lot better paired with parts 2 and 3 tho
Pretty great track. I love the simplicity of it: just a guitar and a singer. It's simple but not dull.
From the opening guitar bars I fell in love with this album right there and then the very first time I heard it . Special special opening track
"And this is the room one afternoon I knew I could love you
And from above you how I sank into your soul
Into that secret place where no one dares to go
And your mom would drink until she was no longer speaking
And dad would dream of all the different ways to die
Each one a little more than he could dare to try"
This section hits me in the feels Everytime.
It's beautiful in an imperfect way, though it seems that this boys life is in shambles with a depressed father and unhappy mother in a clearly toxic marriage, none of this seems to matter when he's near this girl, his troubles in that moment don't seem to exist. When things seem to be too much this girl is his safe haven, it's his escape from the sad real world he's in. It's kinda depressing hearing the details of his life however you feel as if you are going on a journey to escape it as well with how the mood changes.
Brilliant opener to an amazing album!
A song made beautiful by its use of juxtaposition. The instrumentation is a great way to open an album.
Great song and opening, perfect quirky story
