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 78.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

An Indie album on a major label, It all became a little too polished for me after this

This album captured my attention with it’s diverse topics from questioning our purpose and taking responsibility of the environment. The song Orange Crush got me into R.EM. but my fav track on this album is World Leader Pretend.

This is the first R.E.M. album that has at least semi-clicked with me. I appreciate the richer sound, the moodier and more diverse songwriting, and the overall consistency--at least compared to everything else I've heard from them. It helps that I LOVED "Orange Crush" growing up.

This is a varied album but is unified by a undeniable moodiness. Excellent songs from start to finish and more than a small hint of the sort of sour alt rock that would become so popular in the 90s.

As an R.E.M mega fan this was their last release I really dug .The production here goes up a notch with crisp sharp sounds. The ensuring Green world tour would catapult R.E.M to the threshold of mega stardom . Green sits as my 4th favorite R.E.M album behind Life's Rich Pageant , Fables and Document . Green is a superb album.

Hairshirt rated at 78 makes me cry man tears. It is easily a top 10 REM song in my book.

Really great album. I didn't like their albums after this, including the much vaunted Automatic for the People. But this is their third great album, for me, after Document and LRP.

I'm not a big REM fan but I really like this album. The tracks in the main are strong (only The Wrong Child and Remembering California are sub 8 out of 10]. Five of the tracks are 9+, but maybe this is an album for non REM fans as it seems a little underrated on here to me.
