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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.0/100, a mean average of 77.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.1.

Every note is in key, every drum beat in time, and every lyric presumably dripping with meaning. But my god, what a bland, sanitized record.

Mixed thoughts on this. There are some really good songs but you have to be in the mood for their style when choosing to listen to this or it can come across as boring as fuck and put you to sleep. But when in the right mood, quite enjoyable.

Perfect mix between pop and alternative, reaching both casuals and critics.
This achievement, to me, is the peak of music.

Excellent - their best work. Looking through the tracklist now I'm wondering whether I've underrated this album.... My highlights are The Scientist, Warning Sign (criminally underrated - my favourite Coldplay song) and Amsterdam. I'd consider Green Eyes a bit of a dud but it's a very consistent album with some excellent songwriting.

There is just so much emotion in the album! I know it isn't everybody's cup of tea, but if you like sprawling piano riffs and emotional vocals, give it a try.

A superb album - tracks 2-5 are just perfect. 2nd half is good but has a tough half to compete with.

El mejor disco de Coldplay junto con Parachutes. Los cinco primeros temas son cosa seria. El resto no es el mismo nivel pero también son muy buenas canciones.

One of my favorite albums of all time. Probably top 15, maybe 10 ever.
