What Is Music?: A Music Podcast About R.E.M.
MTV Unplugged No. 2.0 (Pt. 2)
Show Notes

The Big Mates discuss cardboard Bruce Springsteen, Benidorm, Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, and MTV Unplugged No. 2.0 by Lauryn Hill.

Adam, Steve, and Lucas continue their deep dive into the career and discography of Lauryn Hill by concluding their track-by-track exploration of her performance on MTV Unplugged. The Big Mates 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 then discuss what Lauryn has been up to in the decades since the album's release!

How do we even score this album? Why did Lauryn Hill go to prison? Are there animated penguins involved? Find out on this episode of What Is Music?

Our next episode is out on Monday October 9th and we will be watching a selection of Lauryn Hill's music videos from across her career!
