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)

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.

Taylor Swift is one of the greatest songwriters in our generation!!! Absolutely the album is outstanding,fantastic and irreplaceable!
Every Song Is Perfection :)
lovely girls pop, I just feel I ve heard it all before (Suzanne Vega Toni CHilds... and and and...
This is on a similar level to evermore for me in the fact that there are some incredible moments but it is just too long and has too much filler to be elite. The positives about this album is the consistent style of music that she has clearly found she enjoys doing. This makes all the songs blend together nicely and creates a cohesive listen. I do think her song writing is a bit more mature in places and there are some great lyrics on here. The lyrics do get a bit samey and repetitive by the end though. This is also true for the style and song structure which could really do with some variation. Her instrumentation is well varied in places and its nice to see a more delicate and experimental approach compared to her old pop ways. Overall, this and evermore are very similar in terms of sound and quality but I think this record tops it due to it having the superior highlights.
Sorry, but very boring.
