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)

Somewhat inconsistent but his best albums are masterpieces.
After all those years of crap records, I was so shocked when he recovered with all those ones like Pure, Jagged. Its the most remarkable artistic comeback I can think of.
The stuff he did with Tubeway Army and his first solo album really are great. Not question a major influence for a lot of artists today. However, he has a lot of material out and yet only two real classics I can think of, The Pleasure Principle & Replicas (with Tubeway Army). Those two are great but I think he's missed the mark so much that it takes away his status from reaching true greatness.
Cars is so amazing!
Very good stuff.
Great synth pioneer with intricate melodies and rhythms - groundbreaking in the late 70's and one of my favourite artists - has found his feet again with his last two or three darker albums
I absolutely ADORE Gary Numan. I especially love the stuff he recorded with Tubeway Army. Gary Numan is the godfather of synth and he's as much a science fiction writer as he is a musician. Songs about alienation, cloning, secret police, futuristic junkies fill his albums and they are disturbingly beautiful. Punk meeths synth...this is really cool stuff. Check it out!
I like Gary Numan's early stuff, but the guy is not a good singer or songwriter. He throws out decent synth riffs and enough of a beat and melody to keep the music interesting. I'm not bored listening to his stuff, but he never moves into greatness territory.
