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 Bayesian average rating of 82.9/100, a mean average of 82.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

Great album, never understood the mass appeal of the title track, it's great but not amazing in my opinion. The album still holds up as one of the strongest in Bowies catalogue.

The conventional and the experimental sides are more balanced than in Low.

Such a mysterious, dark ambient, yet it's an incredibly entertaining record. My fav Bowie album, to me it really goes beyond music.

Starts off well. New production . New style vocal from Bowie. Some superb guitar work from Robert Fripp. Then it slowly but steadily becomes boring after V2 Schneider. The rest sounds like someone only half-trying but clever enough to make it sound more profound than it actually is. Perfect example of this is Secret Life of Arabia.

Loved this album for years although initially took a while to click with the instrumental stuff. The title track itself is one of my all time favourite tracks but also adore Sons of the Silent Age and Secret Life of Arabia. V2 Schneider is my standout instrumental here
