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 tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a mean average rating of 86.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 87.2/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.1.

A really solid song that has an interesting duality between beautiful dreamy melodies and a really dissonant and thunderous accompaniment. However, it feels out of place on Depression Cherry.
I could have seen it being placed right before the end, but the decision of having this electric of a track immediately follow Levitation is a bit of a head-scratcher for me.
Honestly not sure why this track is rated so highly. It is really out of place on the album. The guitar is kinda obnoxious. It isn't a bad song individually, but definitely a weird track to be in between Levitation & Space Song.
I almost thought this was as good as Cocteau Twins for a second. *almost*
