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 86.0/100, a mean average of 85.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

Its a good album, completely different to what he done before and brave move on his behalf. I am not that keen on the album , their is no track that i do not dislike . The only great track on the album is Sound And Vision.

Pretty fun, great album. Really dislike the lack the vocals but that is more of a personal preference than an attack on the LP.

Way too many instrumentals for my liking even though they were quite good. Solid Bowie record, just not one I find myself reaching for very often.

I owned this album before I was old enough to understand it, but listened to it enough to have some room to appreciate the instrumental material. But I'm much more into the songs.

If you ever want to hear a paradigm shift incarnate, look no further than David Bowie's Low.
