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 7% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.6/100, a mean average of 74.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

Excellent album, worth owning for the first three tracks alone. Has that ‘eighties sound’ synonymous with so many other great eighties albums.
An album where the performances elevate the songwriting to make the album an essential listen. The only hit songs on the album are tracks 1 and 3. However, there are no weak songs on the album. 9/10!
Side A is way better than Side B
Slightly front heavy but that's only because the first few tracks are exceptional rather than very good
This is not on the level of his 1970s albums. First 3 songs are great, but then it goes downhill with a little highlight (Criminal World, Cat People).
Album of the year. 1983
Lo dejo en un 80 porque después de esas 3 canciones iniciales, el album no repunta, pero por supuesto tiene algunas de las más icónicas de la discografía de Bowie. Modern Love es mi absoluta favorita del album, y de hecho, considero que el album debió llamarse "Modern Love" antes que Let's Dance, porque vamos, también me gusta Let's Dance, cómo no? es una canción agradable, pero se queda corta con Modern Love. No sé, a mí me parece muy superior y es de mis favoritas de Bowie. China Girl y Let's Dance, como mencionaba, también tienen un alto nivel. Después las canciones bajan, quizá repunta un poco en Cat People, pero aún así no alcanza para llenar las expectativas tras esos primeros 3 hitazos. Dicho esto, es un disco sólido de Bowie. Seguramente que pertenece al top 10.
Best Bowie record of the 80's and probably one of his top 5 ever. Way too underrated on this site and just in general.
Best song(s): The entire album
Not a big Bowie fan. Like the first few songs, but also skip side B of the LP
I can't resent him for being commercial and enjoying it. The title track is fabulous of course, although the album version is unnecessarily long, and the other singles are good. But I often find I skip the second side. Not awful, but not great.
