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 84.4/100, a mean average of 83.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

I love this album. Cinnamon Girl, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere and especially Down By The River are great. The rest is good at least. Perfect album for me.

Neil Young has the discography that is maybe the most polarized of any historically significant artist. There is a ton to unpack with each record, and every one almost seems reliant on a preference of flavor. This is not my favorite Young, but I could believe there are people out there that put this record above any other material by anyone.

Great record. I actually like this better than his acclaimed solo efforts.

Todos se curvam diante de Neil. Nesse álbum eternizou a lenda! Guitarra perfeita, voz calma e precisa, country, folk e psicodélico que fala com a alma.

This is where Neil Young found his footing after Buffalo Springfield. The songwriting is a lot stronger than his debut, and having a backing band really brings out the heavier moments on the record. The solo on Cowgirl in the Sand is great. Cinnamon Girl is one of his catchiest songs and still holds up fairly well among his later hits.

Country Rock - Hard Rock
Love the laid back feel of the album. Only slight disappointment is The Losing End but Neil appears to have been on fire early to mid 70's. Haven't heard all his albums by any stretch, but good choices so far and interested to try some more later.

He made many great albums but still none of them compare to the brilliance of this. Like Bob Dylan's Desire this is perfect.
