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 song is so perfect. One of the most beautiful songs ever made
This is something very special.
This one is just maddeningly beautiful.
Walking home at night realising you've just fallen in love
Absolutely beautiful song. The layers on this song are by far the best on this song and probably every shoegaze song I've ever heard. If the whole genre was like this, everyone would prefer it to grunge.
+1 for Viorar Vel Til Loftarasa, definitely my fave from SR.
Pegasus this and sigur ros's viorar vel tel loftrasa have had that effect
My tear ducts struggle to handle the magnitude of beauty that's in this song. One of the only songs I've ever legitimately cried to. It's just powerful as hell.
Another great song
