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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.7/100, a mean average of 77.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

As a hardcore Death Cab fan, I have to admit that I am a tiny bit exhausted by Transatlanticism. Nine times out of ten, if someone likes one of the group's albums, it's this one. But as someone who loves their whole catalog, it can be annoying for one album to overshadow an entire career of great work. And yet, every time I re-listen to Transatlanticism, I must give begrudging respect to such a knockout album. Track for track, this thing is unbeatable. There's simply no fat on this thing. No two tracks recall one another. Structurally and melodically, I can't argue with a single thing on here. Maybe there are certain things I'm not as fond of. Maybe I prefer the aesthetics of other Death Cab albums. But at the end of the day, Transatlanticism is, for better or worse, the definitive Death Cab record.
Grande álbum emo! Boas referências do indie rock.
A great album full of lyrics that make you reflect and the music does a great job in setting an introspective atmosphere that is amazing to be involved in. I find myself getting sucked into this album with every listen and I get completely lost in the words and music. The concept works well and they do a great job of exploring the themes of love and relationship which makes it an album that almost everyone can relate to. It is also an emotive listen that is mainly created due to the instrumentation which is full of depth and beautifully played. The peak of the record is without a doubt the title track with its grand and detailed composition that makes it stand out. There are plenty more songs on here which are outstanding but that song is just on another level in my opinion. Overall, this is a record which has a distinctive style and it performs it incredibly on this release which makes for a cohesive and elite level record.
I like how I can pick what flavor of cry I would like to have.
These rankings are SHOCKING. Title and Registration only 85?! Lightness is lowest with 80? The overall rank is there but I was surprised by track ratings.
This album I listened to on repeat when I was in college. Anytime it's a little gloomy outside or I'm feeling a little down this album hits me in the perfect spot. I normally don't love long songs but the title track here is such an interesting journey.
Fav. Track: The New Year
Least Fav. Track: Death Of An Interior Decorator
This was an insanely cool listening experience for me, after my first listen i was just kinda like "yeah that was pretty good" but I didn't think I'd listen to it much again. Then Death of an Interior Decorator came on in my shuffle, it was like I'd known the song my whole life, the melody was instantly recocnizable and I started humming along. So I gave the rest of the album another listen and had almost the exact same experience with every other song, there was a sense of nostalgia that accompanies the melody and spectacular lyrics, give this album a listen for sure.
It contains my 2 favorite DCFC songs (Transatlanticism and A Lack of Color), but as an album it doesn't work at all for me. Worse than all their previous efforts, 7/10.
This album is emotionally intense. I mean i thought this album was great, and then I listened to it after getting out of a long distance relationship and it struck me like a ten ton truck. Ben Gibbard's lyrics are poetic, poignant, and extremely relateable. His voice also pairs with the music as well, with a very soft tone to it. I love this album to death and will update my chart soon enough to add it in
