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 mean average rating of 70.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 71.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.2.

Only track I skip is "Speed of Sound" as I've heard it way too much. Coldplay's best album IMO.

The themes of the record and the sound of the album give a good coherent vibe. I really like the alternative synth rock sound. The album is better produced than its predecessor.

Very well produced, with a nice clean sound. Also probably the most Coldplay-sounding thing ever. Yet I did enjoy this when it was first released, however overplayed it was at the time.

My mum loved it though which obviously changes everything.

Not as good as their two previos albums but there are some great tracks are here. I enjoyed most of them but here are the tracks that stood out: Speed of Sound, Til Kingdom Come, Fix You, and A Message(This is my favorite one, its unbelievable. Its a nice call back to the Parachutes era)

Some might say its more derivative than their two previous albums, but the execution is spot on.

Why does this album get shat on so much? I always thought this was their magnum opus before looking online to see really what people thought. It's such a solid record, it has a really cool alternative space rock sound to it, very dramatic. It's fantastic.

I know what to expect from Coldplay: impassioned vocals with a strong performance by the band. They also manage to change it up album to album and X&Y doesn't disappoint.
