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 86.8/100, a mean average of 85.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

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.

Spare, haunting arrangements. It's over so quickly.

On Pink Moon, the notoriously reclusive English folklorist Nick Drake pares down his songs to the simplest of elements: his breathy, whispering vocals; his signature fingerpicking guitar style; and a simple piano melody added to the title track. The spare instrumentation and production create an incredibly intimate listening experience, but the lyrics themselves are often obscure and impenetrable. This paradox of simultaneous communion and distance lies at the heart of the emotional experience of Pink Moon. It's sometimes dismissed as a "depressed" record, but that's not really what I hear in these songs. There is sadness here, of course, but also cracks where the light gets in. Nothing quite like it has been recorded before or since.

Amazing how one man's voice and his guitar can create such a haunting yet beautiful record. Rating (83.64)

An exhausted and depressed genius makes one last effort, to show the world his endless talent.
