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 Bayesian average rating of 83.9/100, a mean average of 83.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

Too melancholic for me, as for R.E.M. standards. It's overly production somehow tries to be empathy from the large arrangements, creates a "church-like" atmosphere. Document is by far my favorite R.E.M. record, followed by Murmur. This one is my third favorite. 8.5/10

I consider this slightly more enjoyable and more memorable than "Murmur". The main reasons for this are "Man on the Moon" and "Find the River".

Not for me. Early REM is way better

The last R.E.M. album I can honestly say I like, but it's already a far cry from the earlier material I really love.

For me this is R.E.M. A band that has some of the best lyricism in rock n' roll, thanks to their ability to switch codes. They move around different genres creating a unique sound that cannot be identified as anything else but theirs. As a lot of people have said, you're not hearing a 90's classic, you are hearing a timeless classic. We all can appreciate the most popular songs of the album, but I think people should pay attention to Sweetness Follows for a change.

Good album and with Everybody Hurts one of the best songs By R.E.M but I like Nightswimming and drive also very much. It has no bad song on it you can hear very good to each song. Clearly favorable.
