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 61.9/100, a mean average of 59.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 59.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.6.

American Dream is more disappointing than bad. I actually like this album, but after years of waiting for Neil Young to rejoin Crosby, Stills & Nash this album didn't really come close to rivaling Deja Vu. The album isn't really that cohesive, and probably a little too long, but there are a handful of songs I like. Young also feels like a bit more of a bandmember this time around as he plays on every track and contributes harmonies on many as well which he didn't do much in Deja Vu. Young and Stills' material has the most presence on the album and its their pieces that stand out.
