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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 77.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.9.

"Song For Our Daughter" is just solid song writing. Marling's voice sounds crisp and gentle and her lyrics feel though out but approachable. The album also does a great job in giving the instrumentals a varied sound. Guitars drums, and piano are all used uniquely. A few of the tracks are best less memorable such as "Blow by Blow" and "Fortune". The synths appearing at the end "For you" breaks the calm tone.

Talented guitarist and vocalist. I enjoy the Buffalo Springfield-like rhythm employed on a few of the songs. Very relaxed but a little less engaging than I'd like.

I feel like I'm one or two more listens away from really cracking the heart of this thing. And though I wish there was a little more life in tracks after "Strange Girl," this is Laura Marling's best record since Once I Was an Eagle.

LM's best album since 2013's 'Once I Was an Eagle' and certainly her most accessible (thus the love here)

This album makes an excellent entry point to those wanting to discover the Marling catalogue

Her most beautiful and mature album to date. Some lovely songs here. She keeps getting better with each release.

Laura's gotten better with each album, and so it is here, as this may be her strongest set of songs so far, despite lacking the experimentation of Semper Femina or her side project LUMP. It's a lush, melodic set of songs, on which I personally feel that Laura conveys more vulnerability than she ever has before - though there is sass and fire to be found too, particularly on the track Strange Girl. Case in point is the closer, For You, a simple acoustic ballad with a gorgeous, understated melody that takes the album out on a floaty cloud of warm feelings. Great album!
