Best album of past decade turns 10 years old




















the best album of the past decade came out this week in 1998.

The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill won a multitude of Grammys, sold millions of records and established Lauryn Hill as one of the premiere artists of all time and then she never released another studio album. I still long to hear what the last 10 years would have been like if she had chosen to continue as a recording artist.

At least she leaves us with this masterpiece, #3 on my list of Favorite/ Best Albums of My Era (after the Bends and The Joshua Tree). Rolling Stone gives us an oral history of this perfect album in its latest issue. Read here.

I do love that album... seems like only yesterday.

I guess I need to get the Bends, then.

Rick,
I'm an idiot on music. I never got the Lauryn Hill thing. I've even tried it again since seeing the high ranking you give this album. Please pray for me;)
Thanks and hope all is well.
Peace,
