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 90.3/100, a mean average of 89.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.7.

It's that bit at the end, the instrumental ending, with those ultra soft drums and the lonely guitars, that solidly make this song a masterpiece.
And damn, what a way to lull you into a false sense of security; barely a few seconds after this song ends, the whole record tears itself apart as Catholic Block begins.
One of Sonic Youth's best songs, it's quintessential indie rock.
Unpopular opinion: Sonic Youth's absolute second best song.
