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 tracks can have several thousand ratings)

This track is rated in the top 1% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 93.7/100, a mean average of 92.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 93.9/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.3.

This song alone would make Space Oddity his best album. And to exaggerate slightly, so would every other one.

I am a huge Bowie fan having got into him in the 80's and having to catch his back catalogue. I had Ziggy Live the Motion Picture before I got Space Oddity album, so that was the first time I heard the song. Thought it was beautiful and got a chill as the story unfolded and Ground Control asked "can you hear me Major Tom, can you hear...."
I noted a comment below about Ashes to Ashes being an even better response to this song and I must say I agree, but both are excellent tunes so I won't quibble
