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 This track has a Bayesian average rating of 89.3/100, a mean average of 89.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.4.

There is a zenlike quality to this ambient track that is quite addictive. Just four chords and a slow buildup. Probably his greatest work.

My favorite Brian Eno song, on this or any other of his records. Definitely an ambient track, but the constant build-up gives it structure. Inspiring.
