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 23% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 73.8/100, a mean average of 71.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.6.

Good bit of Alt Rock with a country twang. Nice mix of mainly up tempo tracks with a hoe down feel to them. Along with a few slower bluesy tunes. Nice length album. Any longer and it would start to grate a bit. Best tracks for me: 'Molly's Chambers' & 'Holy Roller Novocaine'

Kings of Leon at their best.
It was long hair, beards and raw rock n roll back then.
Shame they've now turned into Bon Jovi

Even though it's their debut I don't think they ever reached the heights of this one. Genius takes you for a ride

Joe's Head is one of the best kings of leon songs.

Overrated album along with Aha. It is southern garage rock. The vocals are unique and the raw weirdness at times make them sound original to start. So they get some points there.

I have no idea why KOL fans pick the first 2 albums as favorites. They each have a couple of highlights but other than that pretty average. There excellence begins at Because of the Times, peaks at Only by the Night.

Then they become arena rocks Maroon 5. Soul-less and singles driven

Good southern rock/garage rock revival album. Best 10 songs average is 82,5/100 and the album can get good 85/100. best songs are "Happy alone", "California writing" and "Molly's chambers" all 85/100. All other songs only just good 80/100.
