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 86.7/100, a mean average of 85.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

A sad album yet full of wonderful melodies that strike me every time I listen

At this particular time folk singer-songwriters were huge and unfortunately Nick Drake was someone that didn't get to shine in that moment. However, this album shows and proves that he was every bit as good and important in that time as Dylan, Mitchell and Young and I'm glad that he is getting the acclaim that he ultimately always deserved.

I see this album as a bit overrated. I can respect it as a last effort from this underappreciated man, but I see this as a mixed bag. I think that Bryter Layter is better than this one, however his best song - Things Behind The Sun lands here, it's beautiful and haunting. I don't care for title track very much, i really like Place To Be and Which Will.

Vaya... Una de las experiencias más decepcionantes que he tenido escuchando un album.
Me van a disculpar, pero no encuentro la obra maestra. Me parece un disco monótono y aburrido. Cómo estas canciones tienen 90 de puntaje? No lo entiendo. Hay muchas veces que la guitarra desafina y ya, lo dejo pasar porque estará intentando hacerse un lo-fi??? Pero no, la verdad es que la producción es muy mala y las canciones son repetitivas.
No todo es malo. De esta escuchada puedo rescatar 2 canciones: Pink Moon, le doy 90, y From The Morning, que le doy 85. Justo la primera y la última del album. Y nada más, porque del resto mejor ni hablamos. En fin, quién sabe? Quizás me esté equivocando pedantemente al ser tan basado, pero para eso están los votos negativos. Ya veré si cambio mi opinión en futuras escuchadas...

I love the title track, but apart from it I can't help but find the album a little boring. It's one of the albums the cool kids like and I wish I liked it more.

Disco acústico.
Me parece muy plano. Todas las canciones suenan igual.

Amazing start, Pink Moon is one of the greatest song of all time, and the next 3 songs are some of the best on the album. However the album is ground to a screeching halt with the irritating "know" and the rest never quite soars to the same heights as the first few songs.

As we approach its 50th anniversary in 2022 Nick Drakes ‘ Pink Moon’ remains as devastatingly sad and beautiful in equal measure today as it did upon release and will forever stand legacy to another immense musical force taken from us way too soon

Makes me want to cry every time I hear it, yet it is so beautiful that it brings me peace. The guitar paired with Drake’s voice is something like I have never heard before.
