Product Description

Review

...With a mix of hard-core hip-hop, danceable doo-wop, and sultry soul, Hill creates a satisfactory, even appealing set. -- The Los Angeles Times

The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is an exhilarating mix of warmly expressive singing, hip-hop and reggae-flavored rhythms and Hill's often no-nonsense lyrics.... -- People

Easily flowing from singing to rapping, evoking the past while forging a future of her own, Hill has made an album of often-astonishing power, strength and feeling. -- Entertainment Weekly

Infectious grooves percolate under warm, silky vocals or ear-popping raps; the whole album's a listening pleasure. -- USA Today

Amazon.ca

The first solo album by the Fugees' most distinctive voice quickly wipes away the pretensions of so many current hip-hoppers' discs. It does so by both engaging their widescreen ethos--"To Zion," with its martial drums and gospel choir, is as epic a production as has been heard in 1998's pop music--and speaking the plain truth. Reminiscent in its scope of nothing so much as Aretha's early-'70s Spirit in the Dark and Young, Gifted and Black, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill also easily earns its late-'90s place next to Erykah Badu's Baduizm. Even more personal, if hardly any more political, than cohort Wyclef Jean's Carnival, Miseducation focuses equally on her life (especially the birth of her child) and social concerns about the present and future. Its often quiet surface, if anything, lends intensity. "Everything you drop is so tired," she scolds artistically dead-ended rappers on "Superstar"; if more artists shared her vision, occasional eccentricities and bottom-line talent, she wouldn't have to complain. --Rickey Wright

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good! ;-) May 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This Cd is great. So soulful and inspiring. Boring at some parts, tho...well. I'll rate each song:
1-Intro: Not much..lol..Just an intro. 3/5
2-Lost Ones: I like this song...Nice beat, but not the best. 3/5 [...You might win some but you just lost one...]

3-Ex-Factor: Really Good song. Soft and relaxing. 4/5 [...And when I try to walk away, you'd hurt yourself to make me stay...]
4-To Zion: One of my favourite songs in the album. It shows how happy is Lauryn about having his child. 5/5 [...Look at your carreer they said, "lauryn, baby, use your head", but instead i chose to use my heart...]
5-Doo Wop (That Thing): This song rocks!!! :-D i love it!!. 5/5 [...How you gon' win when you ain't right within...]
6-Superstar: I like this song very much, bc it's a mix of different types of music. 4/5 [...music is supposed to inspire...so home come we ain't getting no higher...]
7-Final Hour: I love this song. Strong...It makes me think. 5/5 [...You could get the money, You could get the power, But keep your eyes on the final hour...]
8-When It Hurts So Bad: Um...i don't like tbe beat very much but the lyrics r good...;-) 3/5 [...See, I thought this feeling It was all that I had But how could this be love And make me feel so bad?...]
9-I used To Love Him: I'm completly in love with this song!! Great! 5/5 [...Thought what i wanted was something I needed...]
10-Forgive Them Father: Not one of my fav' but a good one ;-) 4/5 [...Beware the false motives of others,Be careful of those who pretend to be brothers...]
11-Every Ghetto, Every City: I like the beat, but not so much the lyric. 4/5 [...The streets that nurtured Lauryn Hill,Made sure that I'd never go too far...]
12-Nothing Even Matters: So sweet, and beautiful. 5/5 [...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Hip-Hop Album,Period. April 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
When Lauryn Hill was with The Fugees,people thought either two things:Lauryn had all the talent and Wyclef and Pras were biting off her talent,or Wyclef had all the talent and Lauryn and Pras were biting off HIS talent.I personally agree with the first one,and it's all becuase of this album.This is the greatest to happen to hip-hop since Dr.Dre's "The Chronic".This album is 100% genius,and will never be replaced as the greatest hip-hop album in history.
There are a lot of things that make this album a classic,but the one main pro is the lyrics.Lauryn's lyrics are so genuine and so hearfelt that you can't help but get into the songs.Some prime examples of this are her ode to her son,"To Zion",the heartbreaking "Ex-Factor",and the socially genius "Doo Wop(That Thing)".Not only the lyrics flawless,but Lauryn's voice is turly one of a kind,not only with an infectious rapping voice("Final Hour"),but a range that would put Mariah Carey to shame,the main example being "The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill".Another thing is the producing.The producing is completely relaxing,yet you're still able to dance to it.And the rhythm isn't only hip-hop and R&B beats,but this is truly the most diverse album of the '90's.Lauryn moves from reggae-induced("Lost Ones") to soul("Nothing Even Matters") to a latin-flavored guitar("To Zion"),every song is a refreshing and beautiful piece of producing.Sure,the interludes,are not related to anything the previous song said,but a lot of essential recordings do have interludes,right?
Cons:If you find one single flaw with this album,you are the pickiest person to ever live(unless interludes annoy you)!
As you can see,this album is definitely one to own.You haven't lived until you have listened to this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars [REVIEW IN SPANISH] The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill March 10 2004
By Bea
Format:Audio CD
¿Que se puede decir de este disco que no se haya dicho ya? "The Miseducation.." es uno de los mejores (quiza el mejor) album de R&B / Hip-Hop que se han hecho en los ultimos 10 años. Es un indispensable en cualquier colección. Lanzado en 1998, "The Miseducation.." marco el camino a seguir y fue fuente de inspiracion de la mayoria de los cantantes de musica negra del panorama actual.
Lauryn Hill es, sin ninguna duda, una de las mujeres con mas talento en este negocio (cantante, MC, productora, y compositora..incluso actriz!) produjo, compuso, y arreglo todas las canciones de este disco (excepto "Can t Take My Eyes Off Of You" una de las 2 "Bonus Tracks" de este CD, que es un remake)
El album comienza con "Lost Ones" donde podemos comprobar que Lauryn es una de las mejores MC s femeninas. Seguimos con "Ex-Factor" una bellisima canción que trata el desamor desde diferentes angulos y de una manera tan universal que todos podemos sentirnos identificados con ella. "Doo Wop" una cancion muy bailable y alegre donde Lauryn luce sus habilidades como MC otra vez. En "Forgive Them Father" con una clara influencia Reggae, habla de gente falsa que utiliza a otros para conseguir su propio beneficio. "I Used To Love Him" es un dueto con la otra reina del Soul/Hip-Hop; Mary J. Blige. "Nothing Even Matters" dueto con D'Angelo. "To Zion" con Carlos Santana, esta dedicada a su primer hijo.
Aunque me es imposible encontrar algun fallo a este album dire que quizas los interludios hablados entre algunas canciones cansan y que "Final Hour" es una canción algo aburrida que se podia haberse quedado fuera del disco.
