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 is rated in the top 1% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 81.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

Great albums should sound unique, have great memorable songs, and if they are truly special, take the listener on a journey to another place and time. Westerberg and the boys do that on Tim, by making you not just hear the songs but really feel them. You’re reminiscing about people you’ve never met and places you’ve never been.

I was fourteen years old when Tim was released, and I believe it was a review in Rolling Stone that drew my attention to it. It was the first Replacements album that I ever heard, and that's often the factor that makes me love one album by a particular artist more than all the others. I don't remember hearing an album before Tim that had such pathos: such world-weary wisdom mixed with insolent, adolescent rage. I especially love "Kiss Me on the Bus," which somehow perfectly captures the gossipy, whispering qualities of peer pressure, young love, and first kisses. And "Left of the Dial" is straight-up one of the greatest songs of the eighties.

My favourite album by The Replacements. Second half is much more solid as it has the classics, but the entire album is enjoyable.

Tim is an awesome record! Without “Dose of Thunder” and “Lay it down clown”, it would be absolutely perfect. Especially with one of the greatest closers ever “Here Comes a Regular”. This album paints a vivid picture of 1985 small-town America perfectly. 9/10

One of the classics from the eighties. Paul sounds so raw, and passionate on here. And even after all this time, "Waitress" still sounds funny.

Lightyears better than "Let it Be" they went in a more REM-esque direction with much success.

One of the best albums of the 80s, and one that has aged gracefully, a remaster of this and it could be perfect.

Some duds for sure but Waitress in the Sky, Here Comes a Regular, and Swingin Party still represent them at their best
