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 71.7/100, a mean average of 70.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.9.

Thia album is great. So hard to choose between X&Y and AROBTTH. Both are so good. So this album has a lot of synths in it which is why I think its great. The songwriting is great too. Good melodies throughout and its very melodic. Can't understand why some people are saying its overrated because its in the top 500. I would put this as their best Coldplay album probably. The sounds on this project are really universally acclaimed. I mean so is the 2002 album but I just think this one will age better with time.
Unreal album - whilst the first 2 are brilliant, this one feels more like a complete album with the most consistent narrative throughout. Coldplay at their very best! Wish they played White Shadows more live.
Probably my favorite Coldplay album. "Talk" is so great.
In my opinion, not as good as the earlier ones
The singles are great (Talk, Hardest Part, Fix You and Speed Of Sound) but the rest of the album is a bit meh for me, especially when compared to their first two albums.
Coldplay have 4 albums inside the BEA top 500 and this is one of them
Best track: “The Hardest Part”
At songs like "Square One", they go through musical routes that deserved to be further explored, but they don't. "What if" and "X & Y" were the 2 other interesting tries, but the album overall leaves a lot to be desired, even more if you take into account its length.
One of the best Coldplay albums ever made, possibly *the* best. Not a single bad song and certainly no filler, the deepcuts are just as good as the hits, which is really saying something. The nostalgia/Chris Martin vocals along with "Talk" and "Speed of Sound" makes this my album of the year for '05
Best song(s): "What If" "White Shadows" "Fix You" "Talk" "Speed of Sound" "A Message"
Some really high moments and some very low moments. Not a great follow to a near perfect album, however I know that the pressure was there. Rating (80.38)

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
