Product Description

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 Lauryn Hill, "Miseducation Of" Nov. 13 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Most of this is not my style of music, but I respect her ability and musicality, and her right to produce and sing her music. There are songs in it that I do like. Go Lauryn!

3.0 out of 5 stars Gift Jan. 29 2013
By Kezia
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a gift for a friend who loved it. Unfortunately she found that a couple of the tracks skipped. I'm not sure whether it's the quality of the record or how the product was handled during shipping.

Format:Audio CD
Lauryn Hill is an excellent singer and rapper, as most people can see by hearing her songs or watching her in the movie Sister Act 2. This album can really prove her ability to influence her listeners. I'm not much of a fan of songs that are all rap, because I feel bored by the second verse begins and I don't feel it shows true singing ability.
TRACKS and RATINGS:
1) Intro. This one's the intro, and it's one of the things where the teacher does attendance and goes, "____________(name)?" No answer. It's just an intro, so no rating.
2) Lost Ones. This is one of the mostly rap songs. I don't like it at all, and the only times Lauryn shows off her great voice is a few, all times in the backround and nearly inaudible. R: 3/5
3) Ex-Factor. I like this song a lot. It's a really beautiful song (instrumental, melody, harmony), and Lauryn expresses great singing ability. R: 5/5
4) To Zion. The rhythm is excellent, and it reminds me of a band song called March Zuma. It's a great song, and its only problem is the ending. It's just a bit weird. R: 5/5
5) Doo Wop (That Thing). This is another song I really like. There's only a bit of rap, great melody, a nice song to listen to. Excellent rhythm. I like the chorus. R: 5/5
6) Superstar. This song's okay, not the best. The chorus gets a bit annoying after a while, but its a good song. R: 4/5
7) Final Hour. This is another all-rap song. It's like some sort of freaky chant, repeating thes words. At the very end, the song tries to save itself, but its too late. Listeners have already changed the track in hope for something better. R: 3/5
8) When It Hurts So Bad. Very good, except for the beginning. Otherwise, its up there with all the 5 star songs. R: 5/5
9) I Used To Love Him. Again, the beginning's weird.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD BETTER BEST ! ! July 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Lauryn is one of the most versatile people in the business. She's amazing in all the categories. She's a songwriter, producer, rapper, poet. I mean this lady truly is wonderful. She always carries a message with her unique rock hard flows and rhymes she gives like no one else. This album is for any fan of music, not only rap, or Rnb. But anyone who wants something good to hear. She talks about the truth of the world and criticizes evil. Go and get it and sleep on it till the entire album sinks in your pulse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Miseducation of Lauryn Hill Review June 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
Lauryns CD is pretty calming. She sings with passion her voice is beautiful. I believe this is best described as the perfect album to make love to. Mostly powerful songs about God and love once in a while she throws it down and raps a verse . what can I say shes amazing. A great CD to have in your collection, the track list is good, consistently throughout.
