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 11% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.9/100, a mean average of 72.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.9.

I've never bothered with taylor swifts records as what I heard on the radio was just pop records and I didn't think I'd gain anything from listening to them . However a good friend of mine recommended I try folklore as it was lo-fi indie for the most part and I'm glad I did its a wonderful record from start to finish, the national are one of my favourite bands and I see Aaron dessner was producing on this which makes it even more appealing

Coming back three years later, and with a more forgiving attitude towards Taylor Swift, I've come up significantly on folklore. The stripped down songwriting and production allow for more mature soul searching, the kind of meditation and self-awareness that I wasn't willing to give Swift the credit it for the first time around. But it's all here. I guess what's holding me back is the softness of it. While it is lyrically sharp and emotionally weighty, I do with this was a little more dynamic in terms of intensity. But who knows? Maybe it'll grow with a time and attention.

I'm more of a hard rock, guy. But after repeat listens, this album really hits. Even if you're not a fan of her earlier, poppier stuff, the songwriting here is more mature and has improved to a very high level. If she continues recording or improves any more, her lifetime album sales may put her in the top 5 or 10 best selling artists of all time.

A songwriter's magnum opus. It came out of nowhere and in the middle of the pandemic and with its soothing sound, superb lyricism and gorgeous escapism themes it became THE essential lockdown record.

Surprisingly mature and impressive. I was convinced she was permanently lost…this record gave me hope that she still has a soul.
