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 71.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 72.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

I appreciate the great talent here - bluesy, soulful and clear. What many are decrying about Hozier is his commerciality, but in addition to performing radio friendly tunes, this guy delivers great smooth vocals with raw emotion. That's how I like my music served up.

Personal favorite of 2014. He has a great voice and effortlessly blends blues, soul, gospel and rock into one. I don't understand the poor ratings on this site for this album.

One day, when Hozier achieves the legendary status he deserves, his debut album will be rightly hailed as a masterpiece.

Let's not go to the extremes. In my opinion, it doesn't deserve a low rating as it is better than the pre-fabricated synth pop of this era and it contains a wonderful single (plus other good songs like From Eden or Angel of Small...), but I don't find it wonderful either. Many songs are commonplace, simple pop-soul, pop-blues etc which have nothing special. I will get many negatives for this, I know.

If all future pop music is this organic and raw sounding, then I'll happily kneel at the altar of this album.

This is completely unjust, a 69? Are you serious? This album wasn't AMAAZING, but it should have at the very least low to mid 70s. Honestly Hozier shows his artistic variety from the soulful guitars of "Jackie and Wilson" to the grandioise drums, pianos, and guitars of "Take me to church." But through all this the one aspect of the album that shines the most is HIS VOICE. He has a deep and beautifully clear voice and has extremely great control of it as well, there aren't any parts of the album that I disliked, I'm not the biggest fan of "someone new" but I still think its a great album that shows Hoziers potential and raw singing ability as well. 85/100 for me, And I'm really looking forward to his next drop.

Some are rating this so low just because it's popular seriously
