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 3% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

This effectively got me into music as a kid - I would listen to this from start to finish multiple times a day.

Enjoyable compilation and some good new songs, especially, bad day. It's got all the songs you would expect and does what it says on the tin. They obviously felt that, shiny happy people, was to be avoided at all costs.

Not a bad compilation. Lots of material from their later period. Probably worth it if you don't want the albums.

Got a much better compilation out now making this one a little redundant. 'Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage 1982–2011' has an amazing track listing.

A decent compilation but it should have more tracks from the first five Warner albums...

There are a lot of new or single-only songs on here. Worth it to an R.E.M. fan for this reason, but it doesn't really work as a greatest hits.
