Dazzling solo debut from LH, released in 1998.
The Fugees had already had major success, due in no small part to Miss Hill's gorgeous vocals, but this solo release was a step up in scope and quality.
There's Hip-Hop, Soul, Jazz, a bit of everything, and some excellent song-writing brings it all together in a concept album of sorts. Kind of autobiographical, the album sets out Lauryn's formative experiences of life and how it's all led to her personal philosophy on life, the universe, & everything.
Mega-successful, but that shouldn't stand in the way of this being accorded the classic status it deserves.
Some rather superb video clips:
Doo Wop (That Thing)
Everything is Everything
