Pure class. This album will always stand up there with the greats. The rhymes of lauryn flow smoothly across raw beats. Stand out track without a doubt has to be the no woman no cry cover, it is really phenomenal, can't knock a legend like marley but it is better than the original. Minor fault may be the amount of fu gee la tracks. But this is still truly a masterpiece.

How many of you here danced to "Killing Me Softly" at your school leavers disco back in y6? Come on, be honest... One of the most successful crossover albums of all time, "The Score" put the Fugees on the map in a big, 10 million-plus-selling way. Conversely, it ruined them. Curious for the story behind the pop? Read on...
The year is 1995. After their first album "Blunted On Reality" (1994) caught the ear of rap's underground cogniscenti, the Fugees, then entitled "The Tranzlator Crew" looked for greater commercial success. All but abandonning the fiercely, ferociously energetic sound of "Blunted" for a softer feel, the Fugees pulled off the hardest trick in the book: they kept the respect of the faithful and conquered the charts simultaneously, leaving as their legacy the best East-Coast hip-hop album of the 1990's.
The most celebrated traits of "Blunted" were also its weakest. An album relying on hectic, fast paced beats with occasional bouts of soul and rapid-fire rhymes meant that in many a way, it was too clever. All three members had interesting commentary to make, mostly based on political situations both within and without the New York community, and were given a unique perspective by the Haitian heritage of Pras and Wyclef. However, unless one were a NY native, or listened excessively to the album, much of it sped by. The style was so advanced as to be abstruse, even for dedicated rap-heads. The album was, and is still, nonetheless a fantastic voyage of a CD, but one which was in the end, unsatisfying.
The internal machinations of the Fugees story have yet to be layed candidly bare in the same manner as the dealings of Death Row have been, and thus reasons behind the radical change that hit with "The Score" just over eighteen months after "Blunted" are still unclear.

Listening to The Score after all these years was so refreshing, the mellow B lines, the rhythm, the Rapping, ambience and samples - it just all made me nod my head and listen to it over and over again on my 5 hour journey to Barmouth from London.
Ok, some of the tracks are naff, but the good ones more than make up for it.
Brilliant classic Hip Hop and Timeless.

4 stars as some tracks are seriously bad

The Fugees "The Score" sounds as good heard today as 3 years ago. A truely classic album, containing some of the most beautiful covers of the 90s and some seriously dope beats, this is a must have for any hip hop fan wishing to hear the culmination of three great individual talents.

The voice of Lauren Hill is just incredible, no one can state otherwise. Her beautiful chords and harmonies aswell as the mellow singing from the Fugees makes all the tracks superbly catchy. It's a must if you love RnB, soul or hiphop! With so many amazing songs that have been so popular, includind dowop and killing me softly you can't resist! Well I couldn't!

This is a top rap/hip hop album with a thumping Bassline and a reggae influence. A worthy entry to anybody's CD collection

a stunning album, every track is a stand-out- the remixes of Fu-gee-la are particularly impressive. and then of course the singles 'killing me softly', 'ready or not' and 'no woman no cry' are absolutely brilliant, showing Hill's vocal talents to the full and the track 'Manifest' contains a rap that any Lauryn fan should hear. the interludes are also very funny!
the score sets a precedent- buy it!
