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 17% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.2/100, a mean average of 73.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

As I re-listened it after hearing later Bowie, I find it much better than by 1st listen.
Entré a este album con el miedo de que solo sea Space Oddity, pero no, hay por lo menos 3 o 4 canciones buenas, que no llegan al nivel de esa obra maestra, pero se sostienen muy bien por sí solas. Las canciones en cuestión son Memory of A Free Festival, Cygnet Committee, y Unwashed And Somewhat Slightly Dazed.
Lo de Memory of A Free Festival me sorprendió por completo. Me encanta cómo contribuye al concepto espacial iniciado con Space Oddity. Estamos ante el primer album conceptual de Bowie. Me hubiera gustado que lo nombrara Space Oddity, como es usualmente conocido, pero lo llamó David Bowie, al igual que su album debut, lo cual es un poco confuso. El album tiene varios temas promedio que no cumplen con la calidad de los mejores, pero que, en promedio, configuran un album decente y una significante mejora a lo que nos ofreció Bowie en su primer disco. El siguiente que vino fue The Man Who Sold the World, ya empezando la racha de albums legendarios de la estrella, que uno puede argumentar que comenzaron con este disco.
One of that cases where an album has been "fagocitated" by its title track; frankly... even if not so eclectic, the whole album deserves to be listened.
Space Oddity is great but nothing else stands out for me.
Bowie's true first album creative and stylistically.
Best song(s): Space Oddity; Letter to Hermione; Cygnet Committee; God Knows I'm Good; Memory of a Free Festival
Underrated. Cygnet Committee is awesome. UASSD too
Mostly a one-song album, but what a song.
A superb album which has a leg strongly footed in the psychedelic scene. Beautiful musicianship, particularly strings, provide a magic backdrop for some of Bowie's best vocals in my view. An album which still sounds fresh even today (2020)
Good album, though it dragged towards the end.
