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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.9/100, a mean average of 78.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

2008 Re-Issue Additional Tracks Reviewed
(1) Birthday Gal: excellent track that could have and should have been included on the album , out "Nightclub Jitters" and in "Birthday Gal" TICK
(2) Valentine (Demo Version): stripped back version worth checking out TICK
(3) Bundle Up (Demo): rambling track highlighted (low light ?) by stoned band laughter throughout the track CROSS
(4) Photo: so/so track not surprisingly left off CROSS
(5) Election Day: great track that could have and should have been included on the album proper . Out "Red Red Wine" in "Election Day" TICK
(6) Alex Chilton (Alternate Version): stripped back version TICK
(7) Kick It In (Demo): not too bad , just not quite good enough though CROSS
(8) Route 66: cookie cutter cover probably the worst track here CROSS
(9) Tossin'n'Turni': interesting cover of Bobby Lewis song TICK
(10) Can't Hardly Wait (Alternate Version): must hear for all Replacements fans TICK
(11) Cool Water: country and western tinged cover of obscure Marty Robbins track , strange way to close things TICK
I absolutely adore The Replacements & this is just about my favourite of their stellar catalogue which says it all IMO
"Skyway" is my personal favourite ( a Skyway is an indoor travelator in Minneapolis to transport walkers inside a heated building ) and sits right beside "Here Comes The Regular" as my all time favourite Replacements track
"I Don't Know" is a dead set classic and sums up this band perfectly - slacker / I don't give a fuck lyrics and the magic line: "One Foot In The Door The Other One In The Gutter " , yep that's The Replacements , the band that could have been but would rather be in the gutter
Then there is the really good in "I.O.U" , "Alex Chilton" ( who played on this album) , "Shooting Dirty Pool" and of course "Can't Hardly Wait "
And what would be a Replacements album without the obligatory miss fires in "Nightclub Jitters" and "Red Red Wine"
Paul Westerberg is either the greatest song writer known to man or he's the luckiest , I recon the truth lies some where in the middle
I'm so glad I met you ....Pleased To Meet Me is a triumph
75 "OK That's It's" Out Of 100
Never really got into The Replacements, but this was a fun enough listen. Not real memorable though.
Not as good as Tim or Let it Be, but still strong. Much better than the two albums that come next, at least.
I know I'm in a huge minority, but this is the album I come back to,
More than the previous 2. Let it be and Tim are fine albums,
But this one gets me juiced more. Alex chilton and can't hardly wait
Are two of my favorite songs of all time, and skyway is just emotionally
A strong follow up to Tim, this is the last great album the Mats would make. This set is bookended by a pair of clear late career highlighs; one of Paul's strongest rockers, the scorching I.O.U. and his most lonesome ballad, Can't Hardly Wait.
VERY good album
I thought it was all good. Certainly less energetic than Let it Be and Tim, but it has it's own charm to it.
The middle of this album basically destroys the perfect start of I.O.U. + Alex Chilton, but then comes Skyway and Can't Hardly Wait to make it all worth listening to
Great album. Has some of The Replacements best tracks with some pretty good filler.
