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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.1.

To all you guys thinking this album is a 10, it's really not. You can enjoy whatever you like, but there is no need to mark down any comments by people that have given the album a below average score as 'unhelpful', just because you think it deserves better.
Coming from someone who's listened to this album many times during my teenage years, looking back the songs are just boring. They aren't bad, it's just that nothing really jumps out anymore. Even though they feel nostalgic, after a few songs it quickly degrades into sheer nothingness.
In 5 years, please, look back at this album. I highly doubt any of you will still hold it as high as you do now.

Don't take me back to the start, 5/10

Does what Coldplay do. You can't deny the songs are good, but it's all a bit soulless.

No soy fan de Coldplay, incluso se me puede acusar de hater. Dicho esto, es imposible negar que a partir de la 3era canción, estamos ante uno de los máximos logros de la música popular de la década de los 2000s

This is not a good album. This is a complete masterpiece by one of the best bands of the 2000s. Dont let anyone tell you otherwise. There is not a single weak moment on this record. Filled with beautiful melodies, gorgeous singing, and what is most important, GREAT songs, one after the other.

I cant think of a record of that decade with a better A side (first 5 songs) than AROBTH. if only Coldplay were cool you could bet they would be even higher in this rank. All the songs are 100/100 (maybe A Whisper 9/10) Daylight, The Scientist, Green Eyes, In My Place. But Clocks,,,,,, holy shit....... words can not describe how magical that song is, I wish it would go on forever, the last minute is a work of genius.

Whenever you find a Coldplay hater ask him if he has listened to this album, if he/she say yes run away immediately.

Good, not great, album.

Standout tracks are Daylight, Amsterdam, ARoBttH.

Instead of Green Eyes, which is a terrible track, Coldplay should have included I Ran Away and/or Crest of Waves—2 superior b-sides from the same session.

Daamn whatever happened to you Coldplay? This album is almost perfect! Though I like little bit more their previous record Parachuttes, I can say that I enjoy listening to every song on this one and think that every one of them has something to offer and you just can't get bored, which I can't unfortunately say about their newest releases.

A beautiful collection of songs that takes you on a journey of questioning your own life in self doubt and relationships and wanting answers. This has has my favourite tracks of there’s and the most variety. It works well as a complete album and this album gets played the most of my Coldplay albums. Politik and Clocks are awesome along wit the whole album.
