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 80.3/100, a mean average of 79.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

Great singing, but songs are not as good as I expected.
Lindo e uma delicadíssima pegada de jazz!
Went through a Joni phase and played this a lot but Hejira also deserves a mention.
The two great documents of the 70's as a decade are this and "Manhattan." A superb album, and if you are having trouble finding a song to go back to, try "The Jungle Line." I can listen to her sing "mouthpiece spit" again and again.
A grandiose and seminal album from the song factory of Joni Mitchell. This is not pop, but rock and art.
So difficult to categorize her works, but this is challenging to most, therefore the lousy reviews. I bet that ROLLING STONE has changed its mind thereafter.
very original a prog feel to it with deep bases and great melody and lyrics
Definitely a essential Joni Mitchell album the more you listen to it , the better it gets. Not a weak track on it. Favourites tracks are title track, track4 track 8.
Appealing in the way I find Joni generally appealing, but there aren't any tracks that I'm really running back to hear.
First off Rolling Stone slagged a lot of great records. They hated Zeppelin. Then 20 years later they "revise" their original dismissals and admit everyone was right all along. On to Hissing, not quite as good as it's predecessor Court and Spark , it nevertheless continues Mitchell's musical evolution which would peak on Hejira. The first 4 tracks are the strongest but other highlights are the title track and the amusing Harry's House. One weakness Joni's voice gets on my nerves after awhile.
Joni at the end of her peak. The tracks that that stand out for me are "In France they Kiss on Main Street, Edith and the Kingpin & The Hissing of Summer Lawns.
