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 80.9/100, a mean average of 80.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

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

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

Very good Cat Stevens is like a teacher when he sings Father And Son from this song you can learn very much for life but the first song is also good where do the children play and the last track Tea For The Tillerman a classical music pieces. A must have in every collection. I say very favorable and music shaping for the time of it's release.

Overall: 9.6

Top Tracks: "Where Do the Children Play?", "Father and Son", "Tea for the Tillerman"

Beautiful, melodic songs with some incredible lyrics and powerful, emotive singing. One of the best folk or pop albums of the 1970s, without a doubt.

Someone here commented "A gospel choir has to cover this entire album at my funeral", really without exaggeration, this album seems to be spiritual, it's like a compilation due to the quantity of great songs, with a difference, it's a portrait of a specific moment, without the coldness of a collection of songs, is full of dynamics and depth, masterpiece.

Easily Cat's most consistent and definitive album, this one has him demonstrating mastery as both songwriter and interpreter.
