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 73.7/100, a mean average of 72.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.9.

This album is really great. Great optimistic vibes of piano/keyboard music. Kind of like Coldplay in a way but it is different in its own respective ways.

Love this album a lot. Very cool

A great debut album containing some lovely piano ballads. My highlights are This Is The Last Time, Everybody's Changing, Bedshaped and Untitled 1.

Ok so it would be super easy to hate on this album and it would be super lazy as well. The musician ship on this album is first class for a debut album especially Oxleys keyboards and there are a handful of top tracks here capped by the incredible “On A Day Like Today”

This isn’t exactly in my musical wheel house but respect brother


Peace out

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
