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 86.6/100, a mean average of 85.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

A brilliant singer songwriter album that showcases just how amazing Nick Drake can be even when he is isolated with just his vocal and guitar. In result of this, we get something that feels a little bare but in my opinion this only adds to the atmosphere. With it just being Nick Drake we get a hauntingly beautiful experience that feels extremely melancholic. He makes us feel like he is performing solely to the listener as well and it is so easy to get sucked into the atmosphere on this record. This is primarily due to his delicate string plucking which feels so personal and like it is an extension of himself. He portrays his emotion brilliantly through his guitar making it so easy to connect to him as an artist and as a person. His vocal is phenomenal as well with its deeper tone occasionally drifting into a more delicate and soft style which is so pleasing to the ear. Finally, there are his fantastic lyrics which are intelligent and introspective making them well worth analysing and exploring. Overall, this might not be his greatest album but it is definitely his most personal and on here he has created one of the best singer songwriter albums of all time.
Great acoustic folk album. One of the stand outs of the genre. Just really pleasant and consistent to listen to, yet still quite impressive musically.
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...
What a trip of an album, but worth the time spent with it!
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.
Me parece muy plano. Todas las canciones suenan igual.
