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 2% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 84.4/100, a mean average of 84.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.8/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.2.

La escuché por primera vez en la escena inicial de McCabe & Mrs. Miller, uno de mis western favoritos. Desde entonces la amo.

Okay track. Feels like he's leaned in closer to the mic on this one which I quite enjoy. Not sure why but the lyric - He was just some Joseph looking for a manger - just jars me a bit. But like the lyric - Like any dealer he was watching for the card, That is so high and wild, He'll never need to deal another
