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 13% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 73.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.6.

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.

This is outstanding stuff from someone trying to re-find her identity as a songwriter.

Pound for pound my favorite Taylor Swift album. None of the songs stick out a ton (I liked Cardigan and Betty) but I enjoyed it as a cohesive experience. Would recommend.
