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 76.6/100, a mean average of 75.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

Best and most consistent REM
Like the first half, but the second half (from Binky the Doormat on, with the exception of Electrolite) is a bit weak. E-Bow the Letter is my favourite REM song. Other highlights are How The West Was Won and New Test Leper.
R.E.M.'s best album. It wows me track after track with every listen. Many will prefer Murmur, Documentary or Automatic for the People, but I think this album is the best version of R.E.M.
Just bought the reissue on LP. This is a true masterpiece that was completely out of place in 1996 alternative music. I feel like 25 years later it is finally breathing in the space it was meant to occupy.
I was around 11/12 years old the first time i heard this album. When it got to Leave, i couldn't believe how amazing it was... It's a miracle this song exists.
Over the years i have begun to like R.E.M more and more, and this album does not disappoint .From the moment i started listening to it i was hook. Not a bad track on it.
Really under-rated album. Some similarities to Monster in that the distortion and fuzz are present on several tracks but there is a softening to the edges more reminiscent to late 80's R.E.M. A top notch album deserving a higher placing in the charts
Geez this album was a surprising delight. Them hooks! Them melodies! Just beautiful.
A really great album, there is nothing that really stands out, and all songs are pretty consistent. But clocking in at 65:33, REM doesn't pull out enough tricks to keep me satisfied all the way through, and the album does drone on at some parts, but the will come bouncing back.
Follow up to the magnificent Monster this is R.E.M. at their best minimum fuss just straight forward rock music with touches of Automatic/monster/Life's Rich Pageant scattered around. Recorded after the Monster tour and written on the road it has a loose live feeling and all the tracks add up to make the whole album a tight sounding piece. Standout tracks E-bow the Letter, New Test Leper, Leave, Binky the Doormat & Electrolite. The remainder of the album is also good.
