What Is Music?: A Music Podcast About R.E.M.
The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (Pt. 1)
Show Notes

The Big Mates discuss neo-soul, the thickness of sound, album narrative, and The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill by Lauryn Hill.

Adam, Steve, and Lucas continue their deep dive into the career and discography of Lauryn Hill by exploring her first and only solo studio album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. They talk about the writing and recording process, the context surrounding the songs, and offer up analysis, opinions, and thoughts from three differing perspectives on music, from being deeply into analysis and music, to not caring for art or critique, and everything in between.

They touch on the theme of the album, from love to religion and self-actualisation and talk about the various genres Lauryn Hill pulled together and took inspiration from. They also spend some time discussing the Compact Disc as a format for music.

What will we make of the record? Is it a concept album? Is Lauryn Hill a good singer? Find out on this episode of What Is Music?

Our next episode is out on Monday September 11th and will continue the deep-dive into The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
