5.0 out of 5 stars
Too many MCs not enough mics, 19 Mar. 2002
I can not fault this album, every track is a piece of lyrical genius - it's just a pity there aren't more like it! The unique rhymes, dirty beats and powerful samples (from Irish folk to 50s doo-wap) are held together deliciously by Lauryn Hill's melted chocolate voice. It's not often I give one album as much credit as this one, it's definitely one of, if not the greatest record of the late 1990s.
Best songs:Zealots, How Many Mics and Fu-gee-la
Worst songs (if I had to pick one!):Mista Mista
Final word:If you haven't heard this album yet, do so. It might just save your soul.
