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 3% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 83.3/100, a mean average of 82.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.4/100. The standard deviation for this track is 14.3.

Dystopian instrumental track gives the sensation of being chased. It sounds a little dated now, but I'm sure it sounded amazing in 1973.

"On The Run" is a fantastic psychedelic instrumental track. Without any lyrics, it continues the theme of life that began with the song "Breathe". The fast paced synth and drumming give off a feeling of running. Throughout the entire track, several seemingly random sounds that (using the doppler effect) travel from one headphone to the other, which makes it seem like they're moving around you. You want to slow down and figure out what these noises are, but the fast paced drumming and synths keep moving you forward. This is a metaphor for life. In life, you have to constantly keep moving forward in order to survive. You may wish to slow down to enjoy several other things like going to the beach, visiting other countries, and other things. But you won't be able to do everything. You might do one of those things with the short amount of time you have, but by doing that, you'll miss out on a lot of other things. And this track conveys this message without any lyrics, which is what makes this track outstanding. And speaking of not having a limited amount of time...

Awesome, surreal, and definitely sounds like someone is on the run from something!

Sounds to me exactly like someone's running away, Oh we're safe? No? Let's speed up again!

That's what I got anyway.
