- Awesome Music: Considered one of Joni Mitchell's best albums.
- Vindicated by History: Like the rest of Mitchell's '70s albums post-Court and Spark, this one got mixed reviews on release and alienated fans who just wanted another Court and Spark, but it's come to be recognized as a classic. The fanbase has voted this as one of her best albums on her official website, second only to Blue. The songs from Hejira Joni performed on her live Shadows and Light album a few years after its release got big cheers from the audience.
YMMV / Hejira
