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 has a Bayesian average rating of 66.9/100, a mean average of 64.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 66.3/100. The standard deviation for this track is 19.8.

I don’t know why this is on the album as an official track. It’s pretty cringe and not a great freestyle. Would’ve been cool if it ended with him performing the last song live but something that was actually written beforehand and put together well.
For those unaware, this is a live track (probably recorded off someones low-quality 2008 era iPhone). The sound quality might be off-putting but it's intentional. You're part of the crowd as Kanye freestyles on stage, even blaming himself for the death of his Mother. I know a lot of people hate the audio quality but I personally think it works beautifully here.
Ya, it sounds pretty bad. Kanye is no idiot, he can tell that this is a low quality recording. If we want to understand the song a bit more, we need to ask why he chose it. It does make sense, in a way; even when its basically just him, pouring out his soul, hes seperated from everyone else. The whole tortured fame type thing Kanye has been doing ever since. I think for me, the super echo-reverb thing just detracts too much from what he's trying to say for me to actually pay attention to the lyrics, which means that the song fails to be powerful enough. That opinion is very liable to change, of couse, and I have a feelign that it might
The song itself SOUNDS really bad. I think the lyrics and vocals are great, but I wish that the live production was a bit better. This should have been a bonus track imo.
