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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.1/100, a mean average of 77.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

Didn't really get in to this album after two listens. Highlights are Stand and Orange Crush, and I like the guitar in I Remember California, but other than that nothing too special.

After repeated listenings (which I've found is necessary for R.E.M. albums) this has ended up being my favorite R.E.M. album.

Another good album from R.E.M. ,and some of the songs have a strong folky feel to them. Its also rocks with songs like Pop Song 89,Stand and Orange Crush. Lyrically very good.

This caught my attention as a 20 year old. For me it wasn't bettered. Some belting tracks, pop song 89, get up, orange crush, sounding like a rehashed one I love somewhat.

Green doesn't do much to improve upon the formula they had set for themselves on Document, but R.E.M. doesn't commit any cardinal sins along the way, making it a fairly enjoyable listen. Highlights include: Stand, World Leader Pretend, and Orange Crush.

Never been a big REM fan, but I thought I might find something new in this. I didn't. It's okay.

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.
