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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 89.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 90.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

His best loved album, and with good reason. Blistering into life with a song telling us we've only got 5 years, we move through a parade of brilliance. Suffragette City still blows me away after hundreds of plays.

How can anyone like an album with such a ridiculous name.
I gave this album a listen and I didnt like one single song on it.

It's tough to argue with the classic status of this album, the highlight of David Bowie's prolific, endlessly creative, and consistently outstanding discography. The first Bowie "album" I fell in love with was the greatest hits compilation Changesbowie, which contains several tracks from this album but curiously not its finest moment, the exceptional single "Starman." Maybe, my cynical inner voice suggests, that omission was to keep consumers buying this album as well as the greatest hits collection. For me it might have been a good thing, as coming to this album as a whole made me discover what a fantastic and cohesive album it is: a perfect rendering of all the things that made early seventies glam rock such an exciting and rewarding movement: the zinging guitars, the dramatic vocals and storytelling, and the hard rock without the obnoxious excesses of heavy metal. Truly a landmark album.

The definition of how a concept album should sound. All songs by themselves are crazy strong but the experience to listen everything in one go is amazing.
