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 1% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 92.0/100, a mean average of 91.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.1/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.2.

Best writing on the album if you ask me.

"And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes, I'll see you on the dark side of the moon"

Incredible.

Ties the album together like ribbon on a Christmas present. A hint of melancholy colours it perfectly, while the drama of the chorus combined with those hopeful lyrics make this a sonorous, wonderful rock track indeed.

Speaks to the listener with an artful brilliance that isn't present on any other record, ultimately hammering home the themes of DSOTM. What an exceptional song.

I am starting to piece together what this album has been about... I think i'll take that into consideration when writing that review.

Is the lunatic in the paper the same lunatic who's reading the paper. Or does the lunatic in the paper remind the reader of the madness that life can bring? Open to interpretation I guess :)

You can pretty much call this the title song of the album. It clearly spills out what the whole album is about, plus it has the line "I'll see you on the dark side of the moon."
