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 albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 81.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

Berlim também engrandeceu Iggy! Não mais a auto-imolação, mas sim a auto-reflexão!

Ian Curtis killed himself after listening to The Idiot, maybe if he had listened to this one, he'd still be kicking it.


Now the Idiot is a good album, but this one just kicks with life, Iggy's on fire and the band are just fanning the flames. Falls apart slightly near the end, but ends with a good closer. Almost perfect

One of my favorite albums. Bowie's influence is all over the place. Super engaging and energetic. Love the underground feel to it.

David Bowies talented fingerprints are all over this album , lets face it the track 'Tonight' may as well be a Bowie track it sounds so much like The Duke . Bowie produced this album as well as composed much of the music

Overall this is a real mixed bag , 'Lust For Life ' and 'The Passenger' are both 100/100 tracks sitting comfortably as all time classics . 'Tonight' is good , the rest is average especially the last 2 tracks which both go for 6 minutes and don't work at all

Am I the only one who finds track 2 'Sixteen' creepy ? Check these lyrics out

"Sweet 16 in leather boots"
"Show you my explosion sweet 16"

Bowie-esque

55/100 (entire album saved by Lust For Life and Passenger )
