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 78.8/100, a mean average of 77.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

I don't know why, lots of people live it, but I just can't bring myself to enjoy this album. It does nothing for me even though I'm a huge Bowie fan.

My 2nd favorite Bowie album, next to Ziggy. I always thought this was a futuristic sounding album. Even though it is almost 50 years old, it still sounds futuristic to me. I like every song, even though some are better than others. Also, great album cover!

This is part concept album and perhaps some other songs thrown in. It has 2 classic Bowie Songs with Diamond Dogs & Rebel Rebel. The rest of the album sticks with the concept some very interesting stuff but perhaps the tracks don’t stand on their own as well.

Bowie's dystopian vision is quite a mixed bag and doesn't really work as an overall concept album - case in point is the iconic "Rebel Rebel" inclusion , a track not consistent with the over all theme

No more than interesting rather than compelling listening as a whole
