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 4% of tracks on This track has a mean average rating of 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.3/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.2.

This song is my favorite Beach House track and it isn't even close.

In my eyes, Depression Cherry is a cornerstone of Beach House's aesthetic -- it's a window into moments of fleeting beauty.

Days of Candy wraps up this idea beautifully. More than anything, this song is longing and nostalgic; the beautiful, transcendent love that runs throughout the record (beginning right away with Levitation) has come to an end, ("just like that, it's gone") and the narrator bids it a fond farewell. The magic is coming to a bittersweet close and the narrator watches it fade away ("I know it comes too soon...the universe is riding off with you"). However, instead of wallowing in pain and self-pity, Victoria's character chooses to stamp this ending with a declaration of love ("a little bit of you, I keep it close to me").

The music itself is simply gorgeous. In many ways, it is two tracks rolled into one -- the gorgeous choir introduction is pure raw melancholy and sets the tone for the overall landscape of this track. The ending is a powerful, repetitive finale that reaches an ultimate dreamy crescendo (not terribly unlike their previous closer, "Irene") before fading away.
