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 is rated in the top 17% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 75.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.9.

Viva la Vida, Violet Hill, Strawberry Swing. A great album that sounds nothing like early Coldplay.

Yes, we may feel this was the beggining of their decline (Viva la Vida, the song, was an omen of the terrible radio pop style they will step in afterwards), but it was a daring movement in their career. And a successful one. The album works coherently, it has clear shoegaze vibes going thru it making the songs smooth and ethereal but also dynamic, contrasting with the balads of Coldplay's previous era. I quit following the band after this record, the splendour of one of the most defining bands of the 00's vanished with the following works.

I'm not much into Coldplay's music except for this album, which I secretly loved for many years. I'm still not a fan of Chris Martin's voice, but Viva la Vida is by far their best album, songs are shorter, more straight to the point and way more creative and passionate than on previous albums. Yes, there is some magic going on here.

A great creative move for Coldplay with lots of magic. All the hits are great but Cemeteries of London is my favourite song.

Coldplay's only album which tries to do something different and interesting and succeeds - best album by far

Bonus points for the secret shoegaze track

Best Coldplay for me. So much creative energy. There is a certain magic that this record has that just isnt found anywhere else in their discography. It feels as though they knew this was going to be their last great album so the ambition was high and you can hear so much passion with every minute. Coldplay could have kept going with formula but instead they got absolutely horrendous. The fall of Coldplay is one of the saddest things in music history for me, because god I do love the first 4 albums

I remember hearing "Viva La Vida" when I was like, 6 years old, It was one of the first things i remember disctingly hearing and liking It. That sound has a place in my heart and there is nothing anyone can say that will change my mind. This album also is somewhat good, with a interesiting vibe and concept to It. I wish Coldplay had this kind of concept today.
