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 has a Bayesian average rating of 68.6/100, a mean average of 67.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 68.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.2.

Bunch of solid covers but nothing much worth revisiting. It's worth my once-a-year listen.
Best song(s): I Can't Explain; See Emily Play; Friday on My Mind

Probably my favourite Bowie album! It is the one I can come back to most often without getting tired of it.

It's interesting that at the time and phase he was in, he put out an album of covers. The originals of most are better but he doesn't do a bad job overall and this is a better album than most give credit for.

"Pin-ups" è un omaggio sentito e sincero da parte di un David Bowie da poco giunto alla fama mondiale nei confronti di alcuni di quei gruppi i cui successi uscirono nel periodo compreso tra il 1964 e il 1967 e che più lo influenzarono.
