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 2% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 84.9/100, a mean average of 83.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.1/100. The standard deviation for this track is 14.3.

If Bohemian Rhapsody never existed, this would be their best song. The monstrous scope that it purveys is impressive.

Check out the metal band Manowar if you like this sound.

A very well composed song. It is massive and theatrical and helps elevate A Night At The Opera to a higher level.

Brian May's epic contribution to A night at the opera. It's very good, but it's a bit clunky and it's the only song on the album that's still stuck in that prog rock sound of the first two albums. Still, it's extremely enjoyable, with some great use of vocal tracking during the middle of the song and it brilliantly switches into Love of my life.

That trippy interlude. Something wrong with you, if you don't love that part loud.

And JMan, by no stretch of the imagination is anything about this song repetitive.
