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)

Incredibly beautiful. This one is a very immersive experience -- Victoria invites us to Beach House's dreamworld and completely envelops us with the celestial sound of this record.
This track does exactly what it sets out to do thematically: It invites you in, it envelopes you and then it takes you somewhere higher. "The branches of the tress, they will hang lower now" is the moment of the song, the chord change really serves to realise the full potential of the track as it grows into a dense wall of sound and emotion that increases in orders of magnitude.
This track actually gives me a spiritual experience, and one that seems to galvanise everything that Beach House represents to me as a band. It's passionate, innocent, intimate. I'm stunned!
