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 has a Bayesian average rating of 73.6/100, a mean average of 73.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.4.

Many tracks here are better than the studio versions, including virtually all of the songs from Around the Sun, especially Final Straw and the title track. But the song that startled me the most was The One I Love. This version blows the original out of the water. Overall it's very good, but not great. I think the band knew it too... that's why they followed up only two years later with another Live at the Olympia - which is fantastic.

Very enjoyable live album(the DVD is even better)from REM's, around the sun, tour. It's all a lot of fun but without the visuals of the DVD it's nothing more than okay. It's hard to make a great live album and there's certainly nothing wrong with this but watch the DVD, that's how you get the full power of the show.

Great live performers. Here the Around the Sun tracks sounds much better than the studio version. Excellent versions of I Took Your Name and Walk Unafraid. The classics remain wonderful.
