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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

A bit of a gloomy record and not an easy listen however it's timeless and a very good album.

I've had this album for years and have always loved it. There is not one bad track on this album and with Drive and Everybody Hurts you have two exceptional songs

I have a strange relationship with this album. Firstly, I have been a fan of R.E.M. since the start and loved everything they have done. AFTP was a bit of a move from many previous albums, excepting OOT but I loved it from the off. Then.... I began to feel annoyed by it! It became somewhat depressing and "black mood" inducing. Why? No idea! It has many great songs that are clearly R.E.M'ish... but... something! I stopped listening to it for many years and have only recently returned - what a fine album

For me the album is great for the first 4 songs and last 3 songs. The middle really drags for me.

To me this is R.E.M.'s most dark and complete and varied album about society focusing more on human behaviour than the political and environmental tracks on other albums. From Drive and Try Not To Breath, Everybody Hurts, Monty Got A Raw Deal and even the political Ignoreland to Find The River. Brilliant work!
