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 BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 82.5/100, a mean average of 82.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.8/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.2.

Sabbath never gets enough credit for how good they were at making this type of track. The recording of Iommi’s guitar sounds so amazing with the reverb added to it, not to mention Geezer’s bass. Superb.

Solitude is the perfect calm before the storm of Into The Void and it provides some great structure to the back half of Master of Reality.

One of those songs that completely and perfectly encapsulates a feeling: loneliness.

Lovely Bass line. Great vocals (they sound a little different) and great but very minimal arrangements.

What an underrated track. This song is just so slow and great. Really reminds me of Planet Caravan, more people should hear this song!

Softest Ozzy vocals I've ever heard. So great! He should do a whole album like this.
