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 71.8/100, a mean average of 71.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

Underrated album of Pearl Jam. But maybe not as consistend as previous albums, especially Ten.

Best track: I Am Mine, for sure...

Underrated album by PJ.I'd put it in there top 5 albums.The only drawback for me is that it's a little too long.

Probably the most undervalued work by Pearl Jam. Surely is not at the level of Ten but I don't think that listening to this is a waste of time. If you love Pearl Jam, you have at least to like it.

This is Pearl Jam at their worst.

2 classic songs in Save You and I Am Mine

Can't Keep could be great but is too short. Just as it is about to hit its stride it ends.

The rest of this is just a bummer. The band sounds bummed out and old.

Thumbing My Way back to heaven? What? are you strumming your guitar to heaven? Hitchhiking there? Stupid

Everything after Get Right which is an average rocker is bad.

Surprisingly, this is the first Pearl Jam album I actually owned. I almost didn't continue after this. I'm glad I did but Riot Act just isn't very good. I rank it dead last in Pearl Jam catalogue.

I'll always say this. I Am Mine is one of the best songs Pearl Jam have done.

It's interesting at times, but pretty hit or miss, and nothing essential.

Here we are transported in dusty dirt roads and trails. Everything must give us a rock band, is Riot Act!
