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 94.8/100, a mean average of 93.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 95.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.3.

I truly can’t name any other song in the history of music that has a better album opener. The instrumentals never fail to give my goosebumps all over. This is some of the best musical production you will ever open your ears to.

Fantastic, beautiful song. Great opener and a nice tribute to Syd Barrett.

I dare say there is nothing that will ever match the spine-tingling feeling of those ethereal, cosmic, waning guitar notes that pierce through that space soundscape in the first few minutes of the song.

That, right there, that specific moment, is absolute perfection.

One of the greatest songs ever written. I go back and forth between thinking this or Wish You Were Here is the best song on the album, both are just so good.

What a song, it almost sucks you in and gets you in some kind of trance. Almost everything in this song is perfect, Gilmour and Wright sounds amazing.
