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 72.6/100, a mean average of 71.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

There are ten original songs on this album. They're great. If those had been released without the live tracks/covers it would have a different, and better reputation.
Riddle me this ? What’s the most pretentious fat headed self indulgent my sh** don’t stink album ever released ? ‘Rattle And Hum’ quickly comes to mind
From the opening seconds of Bono’s cringeworthy declaration “Charles Manson stole it from the Beatles we’re stealing it back “ its pretty clear from the get go U2 already see themselves as one of the all time greats and it only gets worse from there - 2 Jimi Hendrix Covers, a Bob Dylan appearance, a BB King appearance and a Little Steven name drop only confirms the theory. Egotistical clap trap aside the entire DOUBLE album is an utter mess - is it a live album ? (nope), is it a covers album? (Nope), is it a reinterpretation album? (Nope), is it U2 with a self inflated opinion of themselves? (You bet). We are so big and important now we can release any piece of garbage we like
“OK Edge play the blues” !!!! If it wasn’t serious I’d swear it was a joke

One of the greatest compilation records ever!U2's Perfect Soundtrack.
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.
I'm not really fans of the live versions. But the studio songs I love!
