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 mean average rating of 85.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 86.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.8.

Good album, but I think Harvest is his best album.

I was never too impressed by this record. Pretty standard Neil Young, nothing super special, aside from Southern Man. It's not bad by any stretch of the word, I just don't feel like it's a masterpiece or his best.

Tough choice between Gold Rush and Harvest for Young's best effort but I think this just edges it.

The perfect album for driving in the night with someone special in your passenger seat. Neil's voice is more beautiful than it has sounded before or afterward.

Although I wasn't as much excited about this album I think it perfectly fits while you're driving a car or on some long road trips.
