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 82.2/100, a mean average of 81.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

A sad and tough listen at times with Young exploring themes surrounding death and grief which are easy to relate to for most people who listen to it. The songs are brilliantly written and they allow us a brief look into his mind during these extremely difficult times. For him to be able to turn this pain into something so incredible always makes me respect him even more. The darker tone and style does appeal to me quite a lot as well as I enjoy being immersed in a gloomy atmosphere. This makes for brilliant listening for me and they really do a great job at sucking in the listeners. Vocally, he can be a little bit shaky on some of these tracks but on others he smashes it with some truly emotional and delicate performances. One of them being Borrowed Tune which is one of my all time favourite Neil Young songs as I feel like I can really connect with him on this cut. Overall, this is a personal and depressing album for the majority of it but it is still full of greatness that demonstrate how good Neil Young is as a musician and song writer.
It's good but not the greatest Neil record I can think about, the highlights for me are Speakin' Out and Albuquerque and if all album sounded like that it would be great, but unfortunately there are songs like World On A String or Mellow My Mind where I just can't stand the vocals.
a lilting guitar the vocals, the harmonica, and deeply personal Its Neil
Some great, great songs here, but overall not amongst my favorite Neil Young releases.
It took me a while to get through this one, but it is really good. The themes are dense and sad. Most of the songs focus on death, as Neil Young had just experienced two in his life at the time of recording this album, both heroin overdoses. But there's lots of good material here, both versions of the title track, Tired Eyes, Borrowed Tune, Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown (which features Danny Whitten, one of the casualties of heroin previously mentioned), and Speakin' Out (Nils Lofgren's guitar work on Speakin' Out is great). You can tell the deaths of Danny Whitten and Bruce Berry really took a toll on him for a while. Tonight's the Night is a must listen for Neil Young fans.
I'm a huge Neil fan, but I could never fully get into this one. It always sounded unfinished compared to his other albums from this era. Many of the songs are somewhat sparse and quietly mixed. I assume this was because he was going to release Homegrown the year this came out, but decided to rush this one out instead.
I still think the songwriting is superb, and that there are some great emotional moments on this album ("Borrowed Tune" and "Tired Eyes" are quite beautiful). Also, the lyrics and messages are amazing. As an anti-drug album, it's great.
Sad and beautiful.
Sombrio e profundamente emocionado! Fenomenal a aura blues do álbum!
Favorite Tracks:Borrowed Tune, Come On Baby (Let's Go Downtown), Roll Another Number (For The Road), Albuquerque
Neil Young with another really good album. I liked this more than the previous album, On the Beach.
