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 84.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

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.

Bowie jamás decepciona. El inicio instrumental prolongado alborotado y luego sublime nos da un presagio de lo que será su siguiente album, Low, también con mucha experimentación, pero bueno, ya a hablar sobre Station to Station, y es un disco corto, de solo 6 canciones, y también con la canción más larga en la carrera de Bowie, la canción homónima de poco más de 10 minutos, pero son 10 minutos de instrumentales memorables, y una especie de medley al presentar con 2 partes distintas claras. Es una experimentación que cae fenomenal y abre el album de una manera inmejorable. Le sigue Golden Years, quizá la canción más pegajosa del album por su repetido estribillo. Todas las canciones tienen su propia esencia distintiva. El inicio de guitarra eléctrica de Stay me sorprendió mucho. Mi menos favorita ha sido TVC15, que aún así merece un reconocimiento por tocar una temática inusual y adelantada a su época.
Por ahora me ha gustado más que Low, pero quién sabe, ya veremos cómo se acomoda entre mis discos favoritos de Bowie. Diría que lo coloco a la altura de Hunky Dory y Low.

It’s a bit uneven, ranging from frenetic (with disco influences!) to soulfully sublime. Even each song has its relative highs and lows. I went from thumbs up to thumbs down and back again in the course of TVC15.

Not Bowie’s best, but still pretty dang good in spots.

This album surprised mem only six songs and with so much talent used to create them. It's a challenging album for a first listen, but the sound and Bowie's voice make it great.
These are not pop&lightweight David songs. He hardly remembered anything about the album recording process, Cocaine-infested times.
