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 has a mean average rating of 73.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 74.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

Feel good music as someone says below. I am not typically a southern or blues rock fan but Brittany's songwriting and especially her voice give this an infectious and hard-to-dislike sound and appeal

It's a good album, one of the best debut albums in a while.
But is not that good. As Hold on is a great song the rest of it fells like boring sometimes. Alabama Shakes is growing...

It's taken me a lot of listens to get into this album but its starting to grow on me now. Will never be an album that I listen to that much but not bad. Stand out track; You Ain't Alone.

Not much new here. While the vocal performance was strong, it was accompanied by an uninspired backing. Overall a forgettable album.

It's good, but even at 36 minutes, it feels long.

I agree with all the comments above, it is not a grower and I think they will be quickly forgotten.

I'd listened to this album once before and was well into revisiting it today when I checked out these reveiws. That was the first time I realized the lead singer was a woman. Wow.

On an unrelated note, this is a pretty great album.
