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 64.0/100, a mean average of 62.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 62.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.2.

It starts off great and then declines a lot, the last tracks are barely even passable. But the first ones are great, How to Save a Life is fantastic, and songs like She Is, Over My Head, Heaven Forbid, Fall Away, are all worth a listen

People give it too much of a hard time because it was a very pop album at the time. I gave it a chance and was satisfied with most tracks.
