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 85.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 85.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

Good recovery from the dismal Young Americans. Some of it works some of it doesn't. Bowie has abandoned his androgynous hysterical upper range for a Bing Crosby like crooning style. I prefer the former. The opening track starts off great until the vocals come in then it becomes a tedious bore. Word on the Wing is beautiful and creepy. TVC 15 a laugh with great riffing piano by Roy Bittan. Stay has an excellent guitar lick coupled with a lousy song. Wild is the Wind is wonderfully arranged but here comes crooner Bowie to reduce it to schmaltz. A mixed bag.

What an album. The first, 10 minute plus track is operatic on its scale and ambition. Forget bloody Bohemian Rhapsody, this is how you produce originality in the mid70s. Every song after that is superb, climaxing in his take on Nina Simon's 'Wild is the Wind', one of the best covers I've ever heard.

Another Bowie album from the 70's they came thick & fast back then. Station To Station has only 6 tracks but all of these are essential, this album carries on where Young Americans left of - Golden Years and gives an insight into where he was going next with LOW/Heroes in the tracks Station to Station & Stay.

I'm admittedly not the worlds biggest Bowie fan, but this is the best record I've heard from him. Station to station, Word on a Wing, and TVC15 are all fantastic songs. I dont find myself coming back to the rest quite as often

What to say, aside from that this album is bizarre, and also brilliant. The opening track (also named 'Station to Station') doesn't tire on us, despite being 10 minutes long and over a quarter of the albums total length. The track 'Word On A Wing' is, however, comparatively forgetful compared to the other 5 tracks on the album, probably why it was the only one not released as a single, but otherwise unoffensive sounding to the ears.
Strongest tracks: 'Station To Station', 'Golden Years'.
Weakest track: 'Word On A Wing'.

One of Bowie's more peculiar projects, Station to Station is quite worthwhile.
