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 artists can have several thousand ratings)

This artist is rated in the top 1% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 91.6/100, a mean average of 90.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.8/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 11.2.

Took me until I was in my twenties to appreciate David Bowie but I'm glad I've come around and he has been one of my favorites!

Early teens in the mid 70s, laying on the floor in my grandparents 'best' room listening to the 'new Sony music centre. Wedged in between Val Doonigan and James Last and his Tijuana brass I found my uncles copy of Aladdin Sane. Mind officially blown. I had no idea such music existed. Singalong doo-wop (Drive in Saturday hooked me) extraordinary piano, beautiful story telling and that voice. The start of a life long love affair. Growing up in a tiny rural village, Bowie made anything seem possible. Anything. I could be whoever I wanted. There was a wide world waiting out there for me. I didn't grab it quite as I imagined I would, but I lived a version of it in my head as bright and shiny as if it were real. True escapism. Who I am in large part is down to Bowie. An actual hero for me. I felt like I'd lost a friend, despite never knowing him. Obvs. That is some talent.

It was late 1969 that I first heard Space Oddity on the radio. I was all of 13 years old. I love it then; I love it now.

Since then I have travelled through life with David Bowie's songs & music as a backdrop - so many classic songs; so many memorable one-liners; so many personal moments (often late at night) listening to David's voice & lyrics. Definitely one of my modern music/songwriting idols.

One of the most creative pop artists ever. This guy could do justice to so many different styles. His discography is bulletproof, with numerous classic albums

An amazing artist who was always ahead of his time, a diverse discography that can compete with anyone else's, truly one of the best to ever do it.

I knew Bowie existed and I've heard some of his most recognized songs on the radio when I was a kid, but here in Mexico he wasn't a big deal like Zeppellin or Sabbath, to mention some 70's icons. Anyhow, he got my attention when a lot of my favorite artist growing up point at him as their main influence. It started with Placebo and, by the time Bowie and Arcade Fire collaborated in Reflektor, I already had one single as part of my my personal favorite: I'm Afraid of Americans, because Trent Reznor.

Time passed and I still didn't mind Bowie that much. Then, some friends and I gathered to play some covers as a hobbie: someone suggested Space Oddity as one of our first 10 songs to practice and I discovered the echoes he had left in one amazing song by Enrique Bunbury (a Spanish songwriter) called Lady Blue, so besides practicing the song I checked his most iconic album as Ziggy; then I played Bryan Molko's version of Five Years, and when he died someone else suggested Heroes as a tribute. I listened to Blackstar and that was it: I was completely hooked. I guess almost every single road leads to Bowie.
