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 84.1/100, a mean average of 83.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.0.

A great live album. My My, Hey Hey (Out Of The Blue) is one of the best songs I've ever heard, the louder songs are very entertaining and energetic, the acoustic songs are quite delightful. Neil Young knocks it out of the park once again.

Best Solo artists of the 1970s? Bowie, Stevie, Elton and Neil Young!

Side one is really good, but side two is majestic. One of the best album sides ever, up there with side 3 of the White Album (well, almost) or whatever you can name.

Stupisce che dopo un album che fu una delle vette artistiche di Neil Young ci siano state, per dieci anni, quasi solo rovinose cadute.

The first Neil Young album I listened to in full and it was great! Not a lot to say other than I enjoyed the listen.

In my opinion only Bowie recorded more classic albums in the 70's than Neil Young, I'd say Bowie won roughly 10-8. It could be argued between about 5 Neil Young albums which is best but I have always chosen this one, it has a bit of Dylan influence in so far as the first half is acoustic and the second half electric, the opposite way round to Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home.
