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 13% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 78.7/100, a mean average of 77.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this track is 18.4.

So sad that this is the lowest rated track on the album.

In a sense, I get it, it’s perhaps the apex of this record’s foreboding ridiculousness. However, I think by this point in the album, Can has earned the right to do whatever they want. It’s what they were building to from the start. It makes the closing track to follow that much more poignant in its contrasting style.

On top of that, the extremes they do go to on Peking O we’re so madly ahead of their time. I hear this song as a bit of a path to the future.

A very fun experimental track. I actually enjoy it more than Aumgn, and Bring me a Coffee or Tea (which are both great songs btw)
