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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.0/100, a mean average of 80.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

I've got this on vinyl so the forty tracks listed above are not all part of the vinyl experience and the running order is complely different. That said, it is a stunning double album which showcases the best of Bowie without a shadow of a doubt. Although I have all the key Bowie albums, it is nice to have his best of in one place. Superb!
