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 76.9/100, a mean average of 76.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

And he's back...
And he's not lost his touch.
This is a fantastic album, full of beauty, considerations of mortality...
What a man.

Bowie's peek into the 2010s is an impressive one, starting here to show up his jazz influences.

I got into Bowie as a teenager in 2004 and this was the first new release I saw by him so I was really excited for it. I loved it initially, but over time there is about 5 middling tracks toward the second half that drag it down. Very strong start and great end, mind. For the record - I absolutely love the artwork.

Non mi aspettavo niente da questo disco e quindi un po' mi ha sorpreso ritrovare una certa discreta vena, pur senza raggiungere alti livelli. "The next day" ha alcune melodie che derivano dal Bowie anni 80, qualche durezza stile Tin Machine, qualche autocitazione ( a cominciare dalla copertina )...

A very good album. I would probably rate this album higher than most of his albums released during his very long creative height.
