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 84.7/100, a mean average of 83.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

some personal introspection and 3 generational anthems almost unparalleled for his time

I feel that in this album, Neil Young stepped way too far into commercialized pop. For me, After the Gold Rush perfectly encapsulates his talent, way better than this album

The two obvious highlights "Old man" and "Heart of gold" don't mean much to me, but I like pretty much everything else. My favorite album by Neil Young. Overall, 75/100.

Very imposing all songs are very good i bought it because of Heart of Gold but i was not disappointed. I can hear every song with a good feeling except The needle here i feel pity for the damaged one. But good arranged and the voice of Neil Young is wonderful.

One of his best. One complaint, A Man Needs a Maid is the very essence of the term prima donna. Other than that, Harvest is pretty much perfect. Some highlights include Out on the Weekend, the title track, Heart of Gold, Old Man, and The Needle and the Damage Done. I also have a particular soft spot for Are You Ready for the Country? because it reminds me of Buffalo Springfield to some degree.
