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 90.8/100, a mean average of 90.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.5/100. The standard deviation for this track is 10.7.

Manages to evoke an eerie almost ethereal atmosphere, one of the great classic rock tracks. Unfortunately over-play has lessened it's impact. The central riff and the guitar solo put this song up there with Smoke on the Water and More Than a Feeling.

Even with the massive overplay, this remains an all time great hard rock classic, near perfect in every way.
