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 2% of tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a mean average rating of 84.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.6/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.6.

Reminds me of On the Run by Pink Floyd
Aint no 5 minute, multi-part song an interlude
Interlude? Get lost, "For Sale" is one of the best songs on the album. Love the groove on this one, the fluttering keyboards, horns, vocals, bass line, flutes, percussion. Lovely. Also I believe this is one of the only songs on TPAB to not contain a sample.
This song is definitely not the worst on the album, that's for sure.
I'm not sure why it's labelled as an interlude, because it stands tall with every other song on TPAB
How can this be the lowest rated one?
I love the synths in the background. I also love how he uses Lucifer as an antagonist. It's so cool and original.
This feels like the transitional song between the first and second halves of the album. Up until this point everything was about problems but didn't yet pose solutions. After this with Momma, it finally introduces the idea of returning back to his hometown for inspiration and comfort. This track also serves as a proper introduction to the character lucy (lucifer.)
An absolute tour de force of production and storytelling. The production is dreamy and majestic, just as is the allure Kendrick is describing throughout the song. Absolutely flawless.
