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)

Slapping a 79/100 on this song like it currently has on this site is just abhorrent. This is one of the most lovely and potently gorgeous songs on the record.
To boot, how perfect is the song as far as this album’s pacing goes. This is the quaint, luscious little calm before the massive and brooding storm of SITKOL’s 1-2 punch of closers As and Another Star.
Nice how he chose to use the word magic instead of love which could have made this song to cheesy. Using a harp was also a really great choice.
The music isn't much, but the lyrics are very pretty.
