It's very hard for to make a definit choice when someone asks me what my favourite album of all time is, but this album is definitely up there in my top 5!
I think this album is somewhat underrated because the singles 'Ex Factor' and 'Doo Wop (That Thing)', do not represent the brilliance of the album. Fantastic in their own right, I don't think they are the stand out tracks of the album.
There's a lot of different musical influences on this album which is what has made it such a critically acclaimed milestone in musical history. I'd say 90% of this album is solely put together by Lauryn Hill with influences ranging from hip hop, soul, R n B and Jazz.
The standout tracks for me had to be the "hidden" ones which are "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" (an incredible reworking of the famous song) and "Tell Him" (strong beats and some amazing vocal harmonies going on here). However, you can't slate any track from this album as they all differ from each other. Also amazing is the track 'Miseducation of Lauryn Hill', with some incredible piano work going on.
I don't want to break down the album reviewing track by track because this is really something you need to hear for yourself. If you like real talent or even just the amazing voice of Lauryn, do not delay in buying this!
