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 83.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.0.

I came late to Neil Young but I did always love the song Alabama. I got this album in 2016 and it was the first Neil Young album I delved into. I immediately liked it - his voice, the laid back songs atmosphere, quite crisp production sound. It was the springboard for becoming a firm favourite and this album rides high in my top 100.
Out For The Weekend, Heart of Gold and Words are all 10/10 for me.

An incredibly modest record with tremendous heart and passion. With each release his tremendous songwriting ability carries on impressing with impeccable grace and beauty.

Great singing as always with Neil, there is no really bad tracks on here but most of them aren't amazing in my opinion either. My favorites are Heart Of Gold and Words (Between The Lines Of Age).

Entre el Young acústico y el eléctrico (que también ha dado trabajos espléndidos) me quedo con el primero, y este álbum es todo un clásico.

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
