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)

Undeniably his best post-VU song. Just beautiful.
to toro toro to to tororoxD
Perhaps my favorite bassline of any song. The lyrics make this the ultimate Lou Reed.
This song it´s beautiful, it´s Lou Reed´s masterpiece (after Perfect Day), this is one of that songs that had born to show it´s lyrically work, UNIQUE
For 1972, this was pretty brutally honest. And yet a beautiful song.
