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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.5/100, a mean average of 76.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

This is definitely a poppier affair than we've been used to from R.E.M., even taking into consideration Green's Stand. So how does it stand up to their other material? Oh it's marvellous. From the rumbling Low to the rap of Radio Song, the band showcase their songwriting ability amply, delivering on all fronts. The energy dips a little in the second half of the album, but all is forgiven once the excellent Me In Honey swings around to close the show. A brilliant piece of work.

My favourite REM album, just pipping Automatic For The People. My favourites are Shiny Happy People and Near Wild Heaven.

Pop is not really their thing. You can just hear how desperately they try to sound ‘cool’ on the opening song. And even if that’s all ironic for the message of the song, you should do it well. If the concept is “let’s make a song about pop music and sound like a pop band”, then you should actually sound like a pop band.

Some very good moments, the rest is bang average for a band of this calibre.

What to make of Out Of Time? As an R.E.M mega fan I’ve grappled with this question for 25 years & TBH I still don’t know & may never fully understand. The 1st 4 songs in Radio Song , Loosing My Religion, Low and Near Wild Heaven are average to say the least before Endgame , Shiny Happy People ( yes I love this song even though the band doesn’t) Belong and Half A World Away ( am I the only one who thinks their unplugged version is better than the album version? ) stops the rot and resumes regular transmission . Texacarna is a misplaced inclusion & should have been a B Side . Then we close with the magestic Country Feedback Song with may well be the best R.E.M track period leaving me breathless to this day and incredible Me In Honey. All up it’s a real mixed bag of The Good, The Bad and The Kinda OK . I’ll be listening to the 25th Anniversary Edition wire to wire as per every 25 year release but I recon I’ll be skipping a few tracks to get to the good ones
