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 70.2/100, a mean average of 69.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 69.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

I love this album and I am grateful because it opened the door for me to T-Swift who is a really great songwriter.

Well I like it - and am playing it right now, for maybe the fourth time. And unusually (re others views here), had no idea before listening first time around that it was a cover album of covers, not being au fait with the work of ms taylor swift. So was genuine in giving this an honest shot, and it's a hit.

I understand why some would see this as a Taylor Swift cover album and not give this a chance. Don't do that. This is pretty solid and worth a listen. Besides, even though they are the same songs, it's such a different take that it commands respect for both Adams & Swift. That being said, I do like Swift's version better. Even if people disagree with me, she is underrated critically. So while I enjoyed this and respect it, and for certain people it will be an improvement, I would rather listen to the original.

No, but really, this is fucking shite. I love large parts of Adams' discography, and I just about tolerate parts of Swift's, but this is shameful. I don't need an hour-long "ironic ukulele YouTube cover" album.

On my first listen now, but the intimidate take away is how Adams made such a well known commercial success like "shake it off" totally his own. Really impressed.

Adams has recreated Swift's work to match a form I can appreciate. Not only is this a fantastic cover album, but one that has increased my respect for the the initial writer of the songs as well as the reconstructor.
