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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

Semplicemente, per me, il più grande disco di rock psichedelico mai realizzato: una musica, cioè, legata alla tradizione americana ma che, avvalendosi di strumenti tra i più classici del rock quali chitarre, basso e batteria e senza trucchi, punta ad orizzonti lontani, raggiungendoli. Per l'ultima volta.

A superb song cycle that relies on feel as much as structure, if I could only remember my name, is easily David Crosby's greatest solo LP. Every track is wonderfully inventive, Crosby gives us something that's probably more from the heart than the head. The album includes the epic, cowboy movie, the excellent, what are their names, and the haunting final two tracks, Orleans, and, I'd swear there was somebody here, a beautiful tribute to his late girlfriend. IICORMN, is a beautiful record.

I understand why some worship this album. However, to me it sounds a little too indulgent.

I dunno why, but it took me a while to discover this album. Amazing! One of my top 100 already.

Over the last few days, I haven't been playing anything other than this...The playing is sublime and, Outlaw, I guarantee you will eventually be rewarded.

This is an album of contrasting but perfectly pitched harmonies and exquisite musicianship that transports you to a different dreamlike dimension.

As well as Crosby, renowned contemporary artists in their own right such as Neil Young, Grace Slick, Joni Mitchell and Jerry Garcia coverge together as one.

The resulting impression is of a group of exceptionally gifted musicians and artists at the peak of their creative powers...In particular, Garcia's peddle-steel guitar playing is phenomenal.

This album works on every conceivable level and is a MUST for any top 50 list.

My first listen of this and I feel that it is "just right". The singing is good, I like the guitars, the overall feel of the album is pleasant. No major highlight which sticks above the rest though. Maybe during subsequent listens it will become more special. I know there will more be listens.
