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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.9/100, a mean average of 76.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

Probably her weakest album, wich is not necessarily a bad thing. 7/10.

As good as it is, there's no shaking the feeling that the lioness has tamed herself somewhat. Or perhaps just a release working on strengthing her songwriting skill and seeing what she's capable of, as artistically it seems a bit like a holding pattern rather than the next leap forward from STDP. Her progessive, common-sense wisdom still shines, though she does seem to rely a bit more on cliques than ever before ("you can take the girl from the country, but can't take the country from the girl"), but when she does find moments of inspiration, especially on "Biscuits" and the title track, it really is spectacular. Musgraves certainly seems destined for great things, and simply making a very good follow-up to an eye-popping debut like Same Trailer will more than do for now, and certainly holds promise for what (hopefully) will be a from-the-gut next chapter.

Her musical sensibility is impeccable and she turns out great melodies. This album just sounds amazing. Lyrically, there's a playfulness to her songs that hearkens to 60/70s female country artists. She does fall back on clever phrases a bit too often, but her lyrics have matured overall. Give her a few more years and another couple of albums and she'll be unstoppable.

I highly doubt you will find a better country album this year and one of the best this decade. It certainly cements her place alongside Miranda as the best in country music.

Even better than ST,DP. Dime Store Cowgirl is a standout.

Is Kacey Musgraves a step in the right direction for country music radio? Sure. However, I'm not sure that's a high bar to clear. I see the appeal of the album, but I'm not sure it's obviously better than Miranda Lambert.

For the genre it's a great achievement, and even more impressive that it's a follow up to a critically acclaimed debut, but the music is still "teenage girl" country. No doubt that it has its place, but it's not appealing to me. Especially while there are women the same age (Lydia Loveless, Nikki Lane, Caitlin Rose, Lera Lynn, etc) who write and sing songs with greater substantial feeling and depth.

I don't mean to belittle what I think is a good album, but I would encourage those of you who like it to seek out the music from the artists I mentioned above and others (I'd be thrilled to give you some recs of my favorites). Then you can see how female-country's controversy meter doesn't peak at pot smoking and girl-on-girl kissing.

Great follow-up. She's the best Country Pop artist of the decade imo.
