The average rating is a Bayesian average, calculated as follows:
Average Rating = (n ÷ (n + m)) × av + (m ÷ (n + m)) × AV

where:
av = mean average rating a track has currently received.
n = number of ratings a track has currently received.
m = minimum number of ratings required for a track to appear in the 'top-rated' chart (currently 10).
AV = the site mean average rating for a track (currently 77/100).
