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 60.0/100, a mean average of 59.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 59.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.9.

El mejor disco de Coldplay de su decadente década 2010s.

This is the best Coldplay release of the last decade, but still not as good as the first four albums. The songs feel more sincere than on any other release since Mylo Xyloto, but is heavily centred around Sky Full of Stars with the long winded ending of Oceans heading towards the beginning of Sky Full of Stars. This commercial song is my main obstacle for playing this record.

I only own 2 albums by Coldplay (this one and X&Y) and I am not a fan of the band at all. I really can't stand X&Y, I think it is boring and lame, but "Ghost Stories" is a good album to me. I think it is very well done, all the songs fit together and you can feel it's a solid album, well balanced and put together nicely. I won't rate it higher than 7 because it is not something I will listen very often (not my style), but this is a good album, very innovative and expertly crafted.

Why does this album have 59/100? Every track is good(even Sky Full of Stars isn't that bad). Come on, it might not be close to match Coldpalys earlier work, but this album is so chil . Ink and Always in my Head are the best. Worth the listen, not the hate.

If you forget that Sky full of stars exist, you get a cohesive and well written album, which shows some humility at being only 9 songs long and doesn't deserve so much hate

How do you release a boring album that gets the message across without letting people realize of your laziness? By making Ghost Stories

The final blow for me as a former Coldplay fan. The last record had some quality to it still, but you could tell it was heading in a direction that lost the original energy/non-lame band that they've totally turned into now. IDK... I'd like to think that maybe they'd become something respectable again, but chances are pretty slim.

One of my favorite Coldplay albums just because it is so relaxing to listen to and is short. Although it doesn't do anything special, it does do its job in my opinion.
