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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

Neil Young with another really good album. I liked this more than the previous album, On the Beach.

'Tonight's the Night' is album number 1 in Neil Young's iconic "Ditch Trilogy" which encompasses 'Tonight's The Night' recorded 1973 and released 1975 , 'Time Fades Away' 1973 and 'On the Beach' 1974. 'Tonight's the Night' is not only one of Neil Young's greatest albums it is one of rocks greatest albums

To appreciate this album you need to understand the devastating impact the deaths of Danny Whitten and Bruce Berry had upon Young , it was written from the depths of despair and very dark place

Legend has it Young and his band mates would drink heavily throughout the day and into the night then hit record around midnight & it shows with the loose melodies and slurred vocals evident through out . Lyrically Neil is very literal on this album with no hidden imagery or speculation required - "Albuquerque" is about Albuquerque , "Borrowed Tune" is literally a borrowed tune namely The Rolling Stones "Sweet Lady Jane" from their 1966 'Afermath' album and the boozy "Roll Another Number" is (obviously) about lighting a joint and getting the F outta there ( I love the line "I'm not going back to Woodstock for a while / though I long to hear that lonesome hippy smile") . These straight up and down lyrics is one of the reasons why I love this album

Stone cold classic

Copertina nera come l'umore dell'autore: la perdita dell'amico e chitarrista dei Crazy Horse getta Neil Young in un baratro da cui riuscirà ad emergere solo a distanza di alcuni anni.
