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 pure nostalgia. Listening to this track is like watching your best childhood memories in person (while being invisible) like in time traveling movies. I'm legit about to graduate college as I type this and Olson came on and I almost cried. So many great memories from not only college, but just growing up in general are flooding my mind as my childhood is about to officially end and I will completely be in the adult world.
