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)

By far one of my most beloved tracks on the album. Soft, melodic, and yearning.
it´s a great, relaxing track
"Aint it funny how we pretend we're still a child". Soft-sung at first, this one gracefully builds into a confessional where billy pleads "rescue me from me and all that i believe". It's a song questioning whether to love at all basically saying to believe in love is to be as innocent and naive as a child regarding all the (negative) possibilities of love. In the 3 song suite about love, this concluding number is the most beautiful and endearing.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
