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 3% of all tracks on This track has a Bayesian average rating of 83.6/100, a mean average of 85.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.6.

An excellent song. This is definitely my favourite track on the album. It's personal and separates itself from the rest of the songs with it's sound, without getting too far away from what I'd want to hear on a Panda Bear album.

As I write this, I'm listening to this whilst sitting next to my Mum's hospice bed as she's dying of this fucking shitty disease. I've always loved Noah's solo stuff, but given current circumstances this track both stabs me in the heart (and twists the knife in for good measure) and acts as an emotional catharsis on levels you can't possibly begin to imagine unless you've lost/are losing someone who's mere presence on this planet has been to shower you with love, affection, warmth and (in my Mum's case at least) reggae. Panda lost his Dad a number of years back and from what I've read this is an ode to his Father, but as my Mum lies still and motionless - a shadow of her former self - I can't help but listen to this track and wish I had the ability to express my feelings so beautifully. A blissful sonic massage of the soul for anyone who's had to go through - or in my case is going through - the loss of someone who's previously been as constant a presence in your life as wiping your bum or brushing your teeth. I'm grieving... But my soul is rich. Noah, I can't thank you enough.
