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)

The first album of my Vinyl collection.
Lives up to the hype!
A brilliant record that demonstrates everything that is so captivating about Joni Mitchell. The music on here is beautiful with her folk style standing out as one of the most unique I have experienced. This is primarily due to her use of the piano as well as other various instruments which make this release stand out. Her voice is a huge factor in this also as you can instantly notice a Joni Mitchell song due to that fantastic vocal that sounds so raw and distinctive. The record creates such a blissful atmosphere as well and it is so easy to get completely lost in the music on here making it one of the most enchanting albums I have ever heard. Overall, this is a must listen record from an outstanding artist who is at her peak on this release.

One of the loveliest and most captivating records I know. Joni masters the outlet of songwriting as openness, she exposes so much even with of it being veiled poetics.
Nearly the entirety of Joni’s 1970’s output is excellent. But this is the peak of what she started out as. She’ll later add rockers to her track lists and jazz studs to her lineups, but Blue is Joni at her unfiltered songwriting peak and its one of my favorite albums of all time.
One of my favorite albums ever. Joni Mitchell's voice is just so pretty and soothing to listen to, and her lyrics are equally pretty.
