Over the past few days, I’ve been reviewing Lauryn Hill’s discography. It wasn’t a difficult task – in the twenty years since she left The Fugees, she’s made two solo albums. 1998’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is a stunning solo debut, a classic of neo-soul and an essential album of the late 1990s. 2003’s MTV Unplugged is flawed, but it’s a fascinating insight into a troubled mind, with its long diatribes about her political and personal beliefs.
So while a Lauryn Hill: Worst To Best blog post wouldn’t be very interesting, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is also noteworthy as one of my wife’s favourite albums. I’d never heard it before she played it to me, and it’s the first album she cited as a favourite while we were dating. She’s been enjoying Alt-J and Janelle Monae recently, and her other favourite albums include:
It’s probably a little frustrating living with me as I have a big collection and dominate the stereo, but we have enough common tastes that we’re compatible.
What are some of your significant other’s favourite music choices? If you don’t have a significant other, and have the stereo all to yourself, but still want to post, feel free to post about an ex, a parent, a child, or a pet.
