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 actually really gorgeous. I was pleasantly surprised by this, but it's a really nice way to close the album.
Possibly the greatest song ever written in all honesty and a perfect closer. The 3/4 time signature gives it a sense of uneasiness and that visceral emotion felt through Mangum's lyrics and vocal performance are the absolute height of song writing.
God is a place where some holy spectacle lies
Perfect way to close a perfect album
Blister please with those wings in your spine
Love to be with a brother of mine
How he'd love to find your tongue in his teeth
In a struggle to find secret songs that you keep wrapped in boxes so tight
Sounding only at night as you sleep
Not that's some next level shit
A beautiful end to this beautiful album :)
Jeff Magnum's voice isn't the best, but it is so soulful and emotional. You can hear the soul when he hits the high notes that seem like they'd be beyond his range, yet he hits them every time.
God almighty. This is how you punctuate a musical masterpiece.
Lovely ending to a great album :)
Brings tears to my eyes almost every time I listen to it, and even after 100 listens, I still can't explain why.
