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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 90.0/100, a mean average of 89.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ An all-time classic, one of my top 3 Bowie LP's
Alongside T.Rex's Electric Warrior, this stands as the defining album of the glam-rock era and holds up today due to fantastic sing-along hits and a theme that is fun and still exciting to listen to.
I bought this album based on how popular it is. I was expecting more. Starman was good but the rest of the album was not for me. I know I would study this album for its chord shapes because that's why this album is good. Other than that, I wouldn't listen to it. I don't like this music unfortunately. I like refined melodic music and this is not the kind of album that is that. If you like it, then enjoy it. Just don't talk to me about why its great, because I know why it is. It just doesn't sound great.
What a timeless classic this is. Still enjoy listening to it and enjoying its uniqueness and its now 50 years on !
Some great highlights on this (Starman, Ziggy Stardust, Moonage Daydream) but there are a few duds too. A bit overrated for me, but still can appreciate there are some great tunes.
This album is mind-blowing masterpiece, that was my first listen to it and miles ahead of Hunky Dory. This is Bowie album filled with tracks in "Space Oddity" standard. Definitely one of my favorites of all time instantly. It Ain't Easy being the low point is best description of how awesome this album is.
I am amazed they left Velvet Goldmine off the original release.
AS my proper first listen, this has fared SOOO well. A masterpiece of art!
Every single song...
I always loved when kids would play guitar hero, hear Ziggy Stardust for the first time and be filled with questions. Even now, Bowie still fills a first time listener with wonder and awe.
I am not a huge Bowie fan and I feel defective for not being so (ha ha!), I mean all the cool kids are. With that said, this is the one Bowie album I love from top to bottom and could always listen to.
