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 74.0/100, a mean average of 73.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.8.

Apart from the obvious Radiohead/Coldplay influences, there was definitely some U2 in there, too. Nothing groundbreaking, but it got some lovely melodic ballads, voice and piano makes for a combo you can't go wrong with. And the opening track is fantastic.

Tom Chaplin's voice is a thing of beauty. The band aren't half bad too!

Most of the songs are good/great, but as an album it doesn't stand too good. 7/10.

Yeah, I've loved this album almost from the off. Piano and keyboard led album with strong vocals and delivery.
The delicate She Has No Time and Bedshaped are excellent, but there are other superb tracks throughout.
Easily their best album

Shows you don't need guitars to make a good pop / rock album.
However, apart from the hits the other songs don't do the album much justice, although they're not totally bad..

I'd say this band's music is similar to Coldplay -- lots of piano and synth...pop/soft rock. What's truly unique is there are no guitars. The piano is the focus. The singer has a great voice, so good, in fact, that the band seems to eschew the use of vocal harmony. My favorite songs on this album are Bend And Break and Everybody's Changing.
