{The Fugees'} {Lauryn Hill} turns her debut solo album into a life-affirming evocation of love and all the ups and downs that go with it. Mixing in a little bit of pop and straight R&B with the dominating hip-hop, =Miseducation= plays like one long narrative on the joy of spiritual and physical devotion. While its sprawling theme and length are comparable to {Fugee} bandmate {Wyclef Jean's} debut from the previous year, =The Carnival,= its borders are a bit more confining (a lot of this has to do with the grade-school lessons on the history of love that bridge the songs; {Hill} rarely moves beyond its scholarly walls or her own musical ones). And, quite simply, {Hill} is a better rapper than singer, and she does a little too much crooning on =Miseducation= to qualify it as the hip-hop classic it wants to be. Still, when she gets into a groove, like on the playful "Doo Wop (That Thing)," {Hill's} education doesn't seem all that misguided. ~ Michael Gallucci, All-Music Guide
