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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.3/100, a mean average of 79.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

Zuma is a lot better than I was led on to believe. I enjoyed this album a lot. It's a lot less bleak than Tonight's the Night or On the Beach, but that doesn't mean it has nothing to offer. Every song is, at the very least, enjoyable, and the better songs are pretty memorable Neil Young songs (Cortez the Killer, Barstool Blues, Pardon My Heart). Not his best of the 70s, but not his worst.

This is the most underrated Album in music History. Not Goldrush, not Harvest, THIS is Neil Youngs best creation. With Cortez the Killer being one of the best songs ever written.

Not an essential Neil Young record, but still a high quality rock album. Like most albums with Crazy horse it's a good rollicking rock'n'roll LP, with top songs such as, Cortez the killer, lookin'for a love, and, barstool blues. Solid album.

This album could worth just by the presence of Cortez the Killer, the best Neil' Song.
The other songs? Some are really good, some less.

Cortez the Killer is one Neil's best songs and the song that drew me to Neil in the first place. There are some great cover versions by Dave Matthews Band and Gov't Mule that feature Warren Haynes playing guitar.
