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 artists can have several thousand ratings)
This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 72.7/100, a mean average of 71.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.6/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 21.8.

The first four albums are some of the very best the 2000s had to offer. Took a big drop off after that unfortunately...
Amazing band, Best of the 2000s for me. First 4 albums are incredible. A Rush Of Blood to the Head is imo the best album of that decade.
Fronted by a genius songwriter, the songs Chirs Martin has written puts him right there with Brian Wilson and McCartney as one of the best melodists ever.
I know is cool to bash them, but I honestly couldn't care less. What pisses me off is seeing albums above AROBTH that are not even in the same league, yes, im talking about The White Stripes and The Strokes. One dimensional bands that get praised by useless critics for writing the same song over and over again. And since its praised by critics, what else could we expect in this site than seeing the same?
Coldplay went from writing the ballad of the decade (Yellow) to one of the best and most original songs I've ever heard, "Clocks". As if that wanst enough 6 years later they made a masterpiece call Viva La Vida, sounding completelly different.
Then they made a dance song, because why not, they gonna be uncool no matter what. Then came their most political album so far, "Everyday Life".
Know as one of the best live acts in the world, and rightly so, the have taken concerts to the next level.
The band with most headlines at Glastonbury, the band with most grammys of the 2000s, ups sorry, I forgot grammys only count when Arcade Fire wins them, my bad. The most covered band of the 2000s and certainly one of the most influential. Loved by rappers and djs.
All that and still Arcade Fire (which is basically Coldplay without the tunes) gets more respect and acclaimed...... Smh...
Don't Panic, Trouble, Clocks, Shiver, Violet Hill, In My Place, The Scientist, Fix You, Talk, A Message, Strawberry Swing, Yellow, Viva La Vida, Lost!, God Put A Smile Upon Your Face, Major Minus, High Speed, Paradise, Sparks, I Ran Away, Green Eyes, Bigger Stronger, Trouble In Town, The Hardest Part, X&Y, Crest Of Waves, Politik, Lovers In Japan, Moses, Arabesque, Life In Technicolor II, Spies. etc.....
Had they squashed their desire to be “the biggest band in the world,” they well could have been among the best.
First 2 studio releases are terrific, although derivative of The Bends-era Radiohead and especially The Man Who-era Travis.
Second album, A Rush of Blood to the Head—while great—would have been even better had they swapped the limp Green Eyes for any of the b-sides from the sessions, especially Animals, I Ran Away, and/or Crest of Waves.
Very overrated on this site (cuz they're British), they were good when they started, but then turned into mainstream garbage. I wouldn't rate them more than 75 at best (just for "A Rush Of Blood To The Head").
The new album confirms that it is the best band in the world now... I have no doubt

Parachutes is nice but a bit milquetoast. Their 2nd album is an absolute classic and one of the objectively best records ever recorded. 3rd wasnt quite as good but had the same style and some top songs, so was still amazing. Viva la Vida is the peak for me though. They were playing with creative magic in that record. Every song is so unique and ethereal and amazing. Pure bliss. Who knows what the hell happened after that though. They tarnished their opportunity to be one to the top bands of the era, but hey they have a billion listens on that Chainsmoker song on Spotify so good for them I guess. I wonder if the decision to sell out was done out of necessity because they were out of original ideas, or if they just wanted a big pay day. Hard to say
2. X & Y
3. Rush of Blood to the Head
4. Mylo Xyloto
5. Viva la vida
Recent stuff practically unlistenable apart from “True love”. Would have got higher rating if hadn’t have sold out. Basically started out brilliant and went downhill from there
The 1st three proper studio albums were all classics so I'm judging them on that basis. Very good band with great songs.
