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 85.4/100, a mean average of 84.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

Not up to Ziggy Stardust/Hunky Dory standards but a good album. Love the last track.

This is quite a change up in style for Bowie which makes it fun to revisit this album as this stands out as solely unique in his discography. This is because it leads into a more funky style which I think works wonderfully especially on the title track which is 10 minutes of just Bowie greatness. We also get Golden Years and Wild Is The Wind on here which are both fantastic and are two of my all time favourite Bowie tracks. However, the 3 tracks that I haven't mentioned yet feel like a significant step down in quality with these tracks being arguably skippable. They just don't feel significant enough for me and don't engage me enough to keep me interested in the music. Despite this, when Bowie gets it right on this release it is possibly the greatest he has ever sounded musically. This is because it feels so complex and full of depth which makes it so fun to explore this record. Overall, there is some outstanding stuff on here but it isn't consistently maintained meaning this release is held back significantly in my opinion.

While I definitely prefer his singing in the earlier part of his career (sometimes his voice sounds really akward on this record, like he struggles), this is probably his most accomplished instrumentally. It mixes funk rythms with a cold darker rock sound, managing to predate post-punk .

Strong album. The title track is amzing, but all tracks on here are great. Maybe controversial, but i believe this is his 2. best or 3. best album.

This is definitely his best since The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars and is a change of paste in his career, but this is good for me, because I couldn't stand Young Americans. The best song on here is title track but this is pretty consistent album.

A large shift from the hugely successful glam rock period of his career and it works brilliantly. It is a dark, brooding soul inspired and post-punk tinged masterpiece and one of Bowie's very best albums.

More challenging than some of his other work. A grower.
