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 88.7/100, a mean average of 88.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.1/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.1.

This song deals with infidelity and in particular Carol ( who ever she was)

The Bone Machine is a sexual reference to a body part with the line: “I make you pray , you make me hard “

The track also touches upon paedophile priests with the lyrics: “ I was talking to preachy priest about kissy kiss”

And my favourite lyrical line from the entire album is in this track being:

“ Our love is rice and beans and horse’s lard”
