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 20% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 78.2/100, a mean average of 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this track is 14.0.

Love the rhythm and energy on this one, it sounds so tight and catchy.

Perhaps Arcade's first true clunker, as despite all the interesting experiments (including the kitschy caribbean-infused musical core) every element seems averse to one another rather than merging into one seamless whole, and the whole thing ultimately grates and then just whimpers out rather than being the exotic standout it seemingly hoped to be, the more conventional but much warmer and more engaging "Here Comes the Night Time" covers similar ground but actually works.

underrated! The dub chaos makes it dirtier and more natural than other songs in the album that sound artificial

It is a little dumb, but actually catchy and energetic with cool production make it one of the better songs for me

A filler track, but a darn good one with sadly repetitive lyrics but outstanding production.
