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 has a Bayesian average rating of 67.2/100, a mean average of 65.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 66.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.3.

Had stayed away from this because of the very poor reception and because it doesn't frequently appear in his bios or whatever, but I actually liked it a lot. I'm also listening to the albums I'd postponed from Bowie because of the amazing Moonage Daydream documentary.
It's an ok album and it's not Tin Machine
It starts of decently enough, but by the midway point it's already running out of steam. Maybe I need to listen to it a bit more, for it to grow on me, but at the moment it all feels a bit underwhelming.
A surprisingly good and varied album. To a large extent it sounds like a regular one rather than just a soundtrack.
This for me was where Bowie started to recover after his disappointing albums from Tonight-Black Tie White Noise.
Outside the album that followed was much better though.
Laid back day in the garden! Buddha of Suburbia, The Mysteries, Strangers When We Meet and Dead Against It are the highlights. It's definitely music content with what it is... if music could make decisions that is. It's a kind to ears album.
Totally underrated Bowie album. His best album since Lets Dance.
