From The Diary of Alicia Keys, I now turn to The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (what's up with the middle school term-paper album titles?). I'd say these two albums are pretty evenly matched, in terms of awesomeness. I believe that if Ray Charles hadn't succumb this year, we would have seen Alicia Keys sweep the Grammys as did Lauryn Hill (deservedly) in 1999. Favorite tracks include: (of course) "Doo Wop (That Thing)", "I Used To Love Him", and "Every Ghetto, Every City" (which probably helped "inspire" Missy Elliot's "Back In The Day", off her Under Construction album, at the very least - some might even go so far to say Missy done ripped Lauryn off).
