Ms. Lauryn Hill – Guarding The Gates

The great ones take their time.

It’s been five years since Ms. Lauryn Hill has released a solo piece, but absence only makes the heart grow fonder…or some such cliche.

“Guarding The Gates,” taken from the Queen & Slim soundtrack, finds the generational talent at her best. Cogent and thought-provoking lyrical observation compel the listener to consider each line while a subtle, neo-soul cadence carries the six minute track along its ever important sonic sojourn. As is the case whenever Ms. Hill is involved, the final composition is regarded as a rich tapestry of gravity and grace. And well worth the wait.
