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 Bayesian average rating of 63.7/100, a mean average of 63.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 63.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 25.2.

I think 1989's greatest weakness is that it's choruses are not very good. "Out of the woods" and "Welcome to New York" are just clunky to the ear. "Blank space" sounds like a self righteous Facebook post got made into a song. I will give credit where credit is due "Style" is a great song and the B side is much stronger than the A.

This Generic Pop record won over to one of the most influencing hip hop of the 21st century why again? Are the people who vote for album of the year seeing what I'm not seeing?

I'd successfully ignored Taylor Swift until the release of 1989, and even when the critics swooned over this album as if it were the second coming of Sgt. Pepper, it still barely registered a notice from me. It was only when Ryan Adams released what amounted to a very reverent, nearly note-for-note cover album of all the tracks on this album that I finally took notice. The quality of the songwriting here is tough to deny, and I even found myself moved at times by Swift's performances. Ironically, I've begun to tire of the drama-filled celebrity romances that inspire much of Ryan Adams's own songwriting these days, and it's not impossible that Taylor Swift's work eventually stands the test of time better for me. Just not yet.

Whether you love this album or hate it, it's almost certainly going to be considered among the best albums of the 2010s if not all time. It produced too many hits. Three of them hitting no.1 and three others charted within the top 10 of the billboard hot 100. I personally love the album. It's just a really good pop album.

Fun album with just enough creativity to merit a 95/100. One of the albums that alerted me to non-classical music. Bad Blood is like an 80s flashback! Taylor's lyrics tend to be so poor and girly that her albums tend to be really entertaining unless its just too much, like in Red. Very good music however, although not as great other pop acts like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, or especially the Weeknd, who has one of the best pop voices I have heard.
