The point is the unfinished, unflinching presentation of ideas and of a person. It may not be a proper follow-up to her first album, but it is fascinating.
Entertainment Weekly

Unplugged is baffling on so many levels, it’s hard to know where to begin. Hill seems to feel Miseducation was commercially compromised, but if she thinks her songs are best served in bare-bones settings, she’s wrong.

Slant Magazine

Even more so than the potent and multihued Miseducation, the intense Unplugged is devoid of real joy, leaving the listener weary rather than inspired.


A sparse and often gruelling listen.

The Guardian
Lauryn Hill has a new philosophy. Shame we have to listen to it

Album Number 8

If you like this not read this review, good for you for enjoying this but I'm not gonna even try and be nice to this...this is just the worst album I have ever heard, worse than AMERICA by 30stm (and if you know me this should tell you just how much I dislike this album), worse than that trapt album that came out this year, worse than the first ajr album, worse than kid rock and limp bizkit combined, fuck it, worse than all of those combined ... read more


This is such a fascinating album in the same way a multi car pile-up is


It felt wrong to listen to this. This album and performance should not have been publicized at all.
