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 has a Bayesian average rating of 72.8/100, a mean average of 71.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

An album filled with fun and enjoyable country songs. It is quite a harmless record and the song selection is very strong. They are then beautifully sung by the two brothers whose vocal differences make for an interesting battle for you to be able to watch. The peak of this album is on the songs Knoxville Girl, Alabama, Kentucky and Let Her Hair Go, God Bless Her as they are all classic country music. Instrumentally, it does feel repetitive however and can be quite dull by the closing of the record as most songs are quite similar. Overall, this is just a very fun record that is extremely easy listening and has some brilliant country vocals.

A very solid album with the Louvin Brothers showing fantastic chemistry with absolutely gorgeous harmonisation throughout. Instrumentally, it is very basic, leading to a slightly repetitive tone throughout the 35 minute running time. However, this doesn’t stop the album from being a good listen throughout. Standout tracks include the slightly higher tempo “Let Her Hair Go, God Bless Her”, the vocally beautiful “What is Home With Out Love” and the album opener “Kentucky”.

I've not yet proven this, but I have a strong feeling this would make great road trip music.
