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)

What an unbelievable and thunderous romp of a closer to one of the century’s greatest albums.
The track preceding this, the impossibly lovely As, barely says its goodbyes before Another Star charges right in with its Latin-tinged lightning. Stevie’s vocals and melodies are absolutely top notch here, as is the set of chords he uses. Even though the typical “song” portion is over by the half way point, the churning vamp of vocals, drums, and a phenomenal flute solo are not to be missed as this song and album fade out.
This was used at the opening theme tune for the BBC's coverage of the 2014 World Cup, so this track has a bit of a nostalgic feel for me because of that
Stevie returns to form with the last track of this album, a wonderful romp of a song that can't go on long enough for me.
Pretty sad ending of the album even though the music is still groovy.
It's good, but it's repetitive.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
