This breakdown is phenomenal, and it makes me appreciate the album so much more than I already did.

Truly an inspiration to all. Kendrick Lamar asked, "When shit hits the fan, is you still a fan?" This absolutely applies to the tragedies that fell onto Lauryn Hill. She was and still is a visionary, and she deserves all the respect and love in the world.

For those who "listen" to music rather than "hear" it, you will be hooked. This is the analysis you have been missing and in my opinion one of the highest quality podcasts available, period.

I know the name is dissect but I think it minces each song then adds unnecessary flavors. It's more how you relate/feel or what backs up what may be interpreted than anything else
