Lauryn does very well in popularity and acclaim and has some influence over Caribbean flavored hip hop. I don't see anything behind it that clearly beats it.

i would think the chronic easily beats lauryn hill as far as influence goes and generally the chronic is considered greater than lauryn hill on lists and whatnot. also, how much caribbean flavored hip hop is out there?

IMO Bon Jovi's Keep the Faith belongs here. It sold a lot of copies and the band had abandoned their former glam roots by showcasing more of their The Beatles-/The Rolling Stones-/The Who-influences. They created some incredible rock music as featured in some tracks like "Dry County", "Keep the Faith", "Bed of Roses" and "Save a Prayer". With the album they became huge in Britain! It was also one of their most critically-acclaimed albums.

Here is some info about it:

"Keep the Faith is the fifth studio album by American rock band Bon Jovi, released on November 3, 1992 by Mercury Records. The RIAA certified it Double Platinum for two million shipments throughout the United States. The album has sold over 10 million copies worldwide to date. Keep The Faith was ranked number 21 on Kerrang magazine’s list of the 100 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. The album also featured in the Classic Rock & Metal Hammer ‘s The 200 Greatest Albums of the 90’s. The album was remastered and re-released in 1998, adding the Live from London performance of “Keep the Faith” as a bonus track. The band also released a live album called An Evening with Bon Jovi supporting the album."

I know those certificates don't mean much but this album should be somewhere in the list!

Keep The Faith should definitely be on the list, it's one of the most acclaimed Bon Jovi works and one damn solid hard rock album. It was recorded in 1992 when glam already died and grunge was taking over so it was not an easy job for a former glam band to make an album that succesful. It had to be original, different, more mature, more consistent and KTF was all of those things.

I agree with everything that Wanted said. Also, if somebody tries to deny the album's great songwriting, just listen to this and think again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tg-DQT5MT5A

Also, Queen's Innuendo could be another candidate! And Angel Dust could raise a bit, it had massive influence on future metal groups and had immense underground popularity!

I'm not always able to respond immediately. I've had a busy last couple of days.

I would agree that The Chronic beats Miseducation in influence, but Miseducation beats it pretty easily in popularity, and I think acclaim and musical impact too, although that's close. On other lists, sometimes one's higher, and sometimes the other's higher.

I would agree that the Caribbean hip hop influence isn't that big, but its popularity and acclaim are strong enough to give it a very high ranking, so it doesn't need to do that well there. And it's more influence than some albums have, I'd say more than Automatic for the People, for instance.

sorry about that. I forget not everyone's a student sometimes. Anyway, I woudl think the Chronic would beat Miseducation pretty well as far as influence and impact goes. Miseducation does win popularity handily, but I don't think it wins in popularity as much as The Chronic wins in impact.

Also, another album that I think could be higher would be Ready to Die.
Ready To Die vs. Miseducation

Influence: Tie (or slight win for one, I don't really know)
Popularity : Miseducation by a lot
Impact: Ready to Die by a lot
Acclaim: Ready to Die
