What Is Music?: A Music Podcast About R.E.M.
The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (Pt. 2)
Show Notes

The Big Mates discuss Kindles, Will Smith, Chess, 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 wrapping up their thoughts on 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 explore the second half of the album, the hidden bonus tracks that were included, and talk about how the album was released, the critical reaction it received at the time, and how that perception may have changed in the last 25 years.

What score will we give the record? Is the album a cinematic universe? What is love? Find out on this episode of What Is Music?

Our next episode is out on Monday September 18th and will see us provide commentary for Lauryn Hill Live at Budokan 1999.
