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 1% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 91.4/100, a mean average of 90.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.6/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.5.

A brilliant fierce attack on the pigs, those who rule the world in a ruthless way. The lyrics are outstanding. Guitar, base, keys and drums are too.

Easily my favorite song on the album. One of the greatest songs ever made.

One thing I've only recently realised is just how detailed Animals is. This song has so many extra little sounds going on in the background that we all know inside out but have never actually paid attention to, they keep the song interesting and always on the move. I love how the atmosphere gets progressively heavy and darker in the middle section too.

- The funky bass and drums.
- The extra funky and groovy chorus.
- The superb lyricism.
- The guitars. Oh my, the guitars.
- The tension that fills every crevice of this song. It's palpable.
- The Heil talk box (and the pig-solo).
- The Piano (listen out for it, it adds a whole lot of darkness).
- The finale. 30 seconds of Gilmour playing the living sh*t out of one note.

When someone says this is one of the best songs Pink Floyd ever made, they're not joking.

Some of Gilmore's best guitar work closes out this track

Ha haaa... I love this song. It's kinda silly (that cowbell especially), it's kinda grandly arranged with piano glissando and everything, it's still very bitter in tone and then, Gilmour tears everything apart in the end with a mind-blowing guitar solo that cuts through diamonds!

Amazing song with one of Pink Floyd's best choruses. I love the whole middle section where the band seems to go into some sort of trance.
