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 9% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 75.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 75.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.1.

This album gets a 100% from me. Generally, Im not a Country Music fan, but this guy reinforces the idea that passion transcends everything. Raw emotion drenches this record from top to bottom. Very refreshing.

ONLY giving it a 90, for now. On first listen. But it's hard to find fault at all. And I don't even like Ryan Adams, or at least I didn't think I did. Wor lass has heartbreaker so will have a listen!

This was the album that took Jason Isbell from very good to top of the songwriting hill. These are songs of heartache and addiction, but also profound redemption and gratitude. Isbell's singing has never been stronger, too, as evidenced by the powerful and fantastic opener, "Cover Me Up."

I second my earlier opinion with my only amendment being that this is the best ryan adams album since "cold roses". Jason Isbell writes understatedly dark, breathtaking tales of life and love and all the wondrously tragic complications therein.

From Mercury 02/22/2014 03:35
Pretty astounding. I find it hard not to be totally emotionally involved in this man's music and words by the time the last, utterly awe-inspiring, moments of "Relatively Easy" roll around. I mean, damn son! This thing has heart! It has humor and love and death and LIFE. There's so much living on this record. It breaks my heart hearing it.

That's just my emotional blather. It's great on a musical level, lyrical level, vocally awesome, it doesn't drag, none of the songs drag, none of the songs don't fit (except MAYBE "Super 8", still a killer track).

This thing, I also wanna add is like so similar in style, mood and even kinda structure in a way to "Heartbreaker" by Ryan Adams. Coming from me that is mad praise.

I adore this album. Simple as that.

After half of a year trying to find the best way to describe this album i think I've finally decided. Maturity. Isbell as come so far from his days with DBT that he truly has become a force of nature in the Country genre with this album. My hope is that will it grow in our little BEA community, as I no longer have faith in most of the publics reception to music. Southeastern grabbed after the first listen, now after hundreds more it shakes me. I just put it into my top 50 all time, which by no means is a concrete position, but I cant see it falling out.
