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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.2/100, a mean average of 83.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

What a weird compilation. All the music is essentially good, but after track 12 it jumps ahead decades, and is stylistically and technically jarring (the then state of the art production overwhelms the purity and simplicity of the songs completely). Then goes back to the beginning of her career for one song. It never made any sense to me. And it's sister album 'Misses' doesn't make much more sense either. As I remember Joni had no input on this album, and publicly disowned it? Joni has never been well served to date by retrospectives, maybe the box set in November will do her justice... (Having said that the music is uniformly excellent!)
