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 artists can have several thousand ratings)
This artist is rated in the top 1% of artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 91.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 91.8/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 11.4.

Most creative and best male solo act ever, David Bowie.
Most creative and best female solo act ever, Kate Bush.
To date, there is not a single musician annex artist, who meant more to me than David Bowie. As a young guy I was blown off my socks when I first heard “Fame”. This song totally changed my view on pop music. The song structure, that dark and eccentric glow and the fact that the song deviated in so many ways from the meaningless Glam rock made me very suspicious of the other pop music of that time, the feather-light nature of the entertainment from radio stations and directed my interest in a total other direction. In my opinion, Bowie's creativity and at times extremely intellectual approach to music were hardly matched. He always chose his own path and even when purchasing records that did not live up to the high expectations, there was always something that could not be ignored. Bowie effortlessly took you into genres that weren’t appealing. I admit that occasionally doubt arose. He did everything he could to become famous (among other things by wearing dresses and hinting at his bisexuality) and continued to fight hard against set social values, and when no one could get around him, with "Fame" he wrote a song about the hollow life of a superstar and the negative aspects of celebrity. But Bowie remained true to his need to constantly innovate. When the record company urged him to make a follow-up to "Young Americans", he came up with the totally different sounding and completely idiosyncratic "Station to Station". His work from the seventies is absolutely on a lonely height. Unlike other musicians, he never limited himself to a formula during the evolution of his career, but opened himself up to external influences and novelties. The Berlin trilogy (not really a successful definition because "Low" was not made in Berlin) show how Bowie mastered contemporary trends and innovations (Tangerine Dream, Ambient), without copying. I gladly admit that I could barely taste some periods (the terrible "Never Let me Down"), but I could very well appreciate how he suddenly started to figure in the hard rock-oriented band Tin Machine. Perhaps I am the only one here to say that "Crack City" and especially "Under The God" are among the best that Bowie ever made. In short: the influence of Bowie reaches immeasurably far. Some music (ranging from Gary Numan, Lady Gaga to Marilyn Manson and so many others) would never have been made without his driven example. His oeuvre is incredibly diversified and that, together with his particularly engaging personality, made him so loved and appreciated by so many. The fact that the man turned the end of his life into an example of – morbid - performance art makes it clear once again how his work transcended mere musical ambitions.
David Bowie is one of the most significant figures in music history. His influence can be seen in most artists, new and old. I wish I could have met him.
Sadly, I didn't appreciate Bowie until after his death. After going through his discography - particularly his classics - I recognise now that he was one of the all-time greats in not just rock, but in music in genre. He was quietly pushing boundaries and innovating music with his experimentation with different styles of music, such as electronica and ambient music. Such a diverse and ridiculously talented artist. It's a shame that he is no longer with us. At least Blackstar was a helluva way to end a great career.
Some of his work is fantastic, like Blackstar and "Heroes." But overall I'm more intrigued with the IDEA of Bowie (and some of his well-advised collaborations with certain musicians and producers).
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Creative artist no doubt. But hardly ever really engaging for me, and an often annoying voice to boot.
The single greatest musician in the history of humanity.
1. The Rise of Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
2. Station to Station
3. Hunky Dory
5. Scary Monsters and Super Creeps
Quite simply, Britain's greatest ever solo artist. Innovative,diverse and always interesting. Bought my first album in 1972 and loved his music ever since. A wonderful talent who is sadly missed.
