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 mean average rating of 71.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 72.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.7.

Overall: 9.0

Top Tracks: "Angel of Harlem", "God Part II", "All I Want is You"

Pompous as all hell, but with U2 that's not a valid criticism, kinda just goes with the territory. It's as underrated as it is pretentious, but it's also one of their best collections of songs up to this point.

Dunno why this album gets so much hate (especially from the critics) I think this is a great collection of some of U2's best work.

I think it is a underrated album, maybe not their most creative album. Lyrical the songs are very good, possible would have prefer studio tracks one side, and the live tracks on the other side. Still good listen.

Would of liked a full live set but this holds well together, can't fault any of the hits on here either a great insight to their tour of America, I like it anyway,wether you class this as a studio album is another matter.

Long compilation of live songs, covers, and studio tracks. They all blend together quite well and I find this a great listen. Favorites include Desire and Angel of Harlem.
