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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.8/100, a mean average of 74.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.1.

Competent if not riveting live album from Bowie. The, Low, tracks are the most interesting, hearing them delivered in a more conventional 'band' sense than the more produced versions of the studio recordings. All in all, a bit pointless and underwhelming but certainly not a bad album at all. For Bowie completists only.

Sounds a bit half arsed apart from the material from station to station.

A great live album of Mr. Bowie during one of his most creative an experimental periods. Highly recommended.

Interesting versions of Low material plus a run through the most famous Hunky/Ziggy-era songs. Grear quality. Much recommended.

Bowie's best live album captured during the Berlin era. Contains a better version of Breaking Glass than the original on Low, most of the tracks stay true to the originals. Also contains 5 tracks from Ziggy Stardust and a great version of Alabama Song. The remastered version on 2 C.D.'s puts the tracks in the order they were played during the tour, with Warszawa being the first track followed by the tracks from Low and Heroes the second Disc has the 5 tracks from Ziggy and the tracks from Station and also Alabama Song.

I like how are all smarty arty stuff is put in with the rest of the music at the rock show. It sounds like it went down quite well. I liked this little show by David Bowie. Even The Doors cover sounded fab!
