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.
