Lauryn Hill - The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill
You know when an album comes along and it is a revelation? When I first heard this record I thought 'fucking hell, how can so much amazing shit come out of one person's head?' I really loved the musical styles she employed. I think one of the best lines on that album is [sings] "Like Cain and Abel, Caesar and Brutus, Jesus and Judas, Backstabbers do this / Forgive them father for they know not what they do" [from the track 'Forgive Them Father'], as it so bang on the money.
