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)

One of those songs that are just out there in their own league completely.
One of those handful of songs you can really fall in love with. Masterful would be an understatement.
I have no words how to explain this song..
A very emotional song, my favorite of Lou Reed. The 'you' in the song can both be about a close person or drugs.
Now I Know What is GOOD Lyrics, sad and happiness lyrics, there´s no song that can compared with this one, Lou Reed´s Best Song Ever
Great song, I can't help but get flashes of 'Trainspotting' everytime I hear this.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
