Calling on her obvious comprehension of an expansive range of music, Hill deftly moves through moods and influences, sometimes transforming a song in a mere moment.
Most R&B albums nowadays are terribly rushed together efforts, with 2 or 3 singles and 20 tracks of filler. This, on the other hand, is a rare thing nowadays - an R&B album that actually stands up as a whole, and as such, will be remembered for a long, long time.
Slant Magazine

For being almost 80 minutes long, Miseducation is a surprisingly easy listen, coasting mostly on Hill's simple repetition of phrases to emphasize a mood. 

Imagine a rap LP made in 1975 with the kind of political and personal scope of 'What's Going On': or the idea of a young Stevie Wonder hitting his peak in 1998. That's what we're dealing with here.
An artist who mastered her craft not just for the sake of it but for the sentimental and sincere value she ascribed to it as a vessel to channel her emotions both vocally and spiritually, embodying her philosophy in the content of her music. A timeless master-piece that showcases the best of Lauryn Hill as a musician and entertainer as well as thinker.

Take the spotlight and put it on the brightest star of an already dazzling group and what comes out is absolutely blinding. Hill mixes hip-hop with soul and R&B flawlessly here, chunking out solid track after solid track; there isn't a down moment across this album and it all flows together seamlessly. This is a sincere, authentic and emotive effort, the artist putting her entire being into this project, and that reflects well. The vocals are a thing of beauty and somehow Hill can take that ... read more
o único álbum de estúdio da artista permanece atemporal, lendário e uma inspiração pra vários artistas.
This is the ultimate form of R&B. Breath-taking, luscious vocals covering similarly expansive instrumentation from an artist at the height of her artistic faculties contributes to The Miseducation being as timeless today as it was 20 years ago. Most remarkably, The Miseducation is never grandiose for the sake of being grandiose - it is an authentic portrayal of the thoughts and troubles of a singular figure in the music scene, and its sincerity and authenticity elevate the album to new ... read more
