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 6% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.5/100, a mean average of 76.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

An album that is very enjoyable and is very easy to sing along too due to the catchy choruses. The pop and country fusion works amazing together due to the slick production which makes this album a very smooth journey. However, the songs are a bit simple and one note and I find that once you have heard one song you have pretty much heard the whole album. It is very repetitive and by the end I was craving something different. Also, there isn't many layers to really look into so once you have heard the album there is no reason to come back as you won't find anything new really. Overall, an album you can enjoy in the background but when you properly listen to the record it is quite simple and uninteresting.

Very reminiscent of prime Sheryl Crow, but far less self-indulgent. Quality Country that feels a little more genuine and a little less stadium.

Like Nanci Griffith, Musgraves has a special folk songwriting talent, with the gusto to layer poignant lyrics with familiar traditional melodies and contemporary pop studio production. It is no easy task to take folk music and make it commercially accessible, but Musgraves succeeds with the delicate "Golden Hour."

If you enjoy this, I recommend:
"Wrecking Ball" by Emmylou Harris
"Storms" by Nanci Griffith
"Same Trailer Different Park" by Kacey Musgraves

Inoffensive enough. Couple of semi-memorable songs save it from being completely dispensible.

The album is totally okay, no one will get hurt, no song is progressive, the songs are just there, sounding sweet and nice and you can play it in the background and no one will ever get upset about it. But this means no song is really outstanding. It sounds too generic to make it to the top of my AOTY.

The golden hour is a mixed bag. The instrumentation is really well done with the mixture of country and pop sounds mixing really well. The banjos in particular are always a point of pleasure. I find the production to be a bit to glossy sweet at times. I think the albums biggest problem is its writing. Musgraves' writes in the same sort of "You are my metaphor" for a good portion of the album with the titular "Golden hour" being the worst offender.
