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 80.6/100, a mean average of 80.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

A great record to enjoy as it is simple and effective and so easy to sing a long with. The playing on here is so soft and delicate which makes the music sound so beautiful. This creates a lot of emotion for us through the performances of the instrumentation as well as through the vocal. His vocal is just brilliant on this release as it guides us along this album with a graceful but powerful feel to it. The songs are brilliantly written as well with Father And Son being one of the greatest songs ever recorded. Overall, it is such an enjoyable experience to stick on this record and just get lost in the music and the performances.

Beautiful playing and singing, and lyrics are mostly great but sometimes repetitive and this is the only thing that holds this album back.

Aunque mi álbum preferido de Cat Stevens es Teaser And The Firecat, en este disco están mis dos canciones favoritas: Sad Lisa y Father And Son.

Is it just me or does he sound a lot like Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull? Just me? Alright.
Great album.

The perfect album for being alone with your thoughts, which is one of my favorite states of being.

Love him or loathe him there’s no denying ol Cattys popularity and in particular this album which turned 50 this year

My personal favourite track here is the excellent and completely under rated “ Sad Lisa” whilst hearing “Wild World” or any number of its covers is like nails on a chalk board

This album along with ‘Tapestry’ are gold standards on any Easy Listening Radio playlist
