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 85.8/100, a mean average of 85.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

Neil Young’s 3rd album is loosely based on a film script titled “After The Gold Rush” oddly enough. The film was never saw the light of day and the script long lost to time but the premise involved a post apocalyptic setting of sorts which explains the feeling of desolation permeating throughout this iconic album

Pour moi le meilleur chanteur folk. Même si je préfère Harvest, cet album là est malgré tout superbe.

The first side is great, and the last two songs are very good. A very enjoyable album with just a few moments of lag

Really good. Like most Neil Young, even the lesser material is better than most other artists' good stuff.

Sound like they're playin' in a barn :D
A good Neil Young record with some great music inside.
I know this album too well to talk about it. It's like family.
