Product Description

Product Description


Their remake of "Killing Me Softly" was the hit, but that's only the beginning of the story. A hip-hop trio whose talents reach out into the world of the pop song (Wyclef Jean is a fine guitar player, and Lauryn Hill's a heck of a singer), the Fugees are also all distinctive, inventive rappers--you find yourself waiting for each of them to take the next verse in turn. The beats are the familiar crossed-armed boom-bip, but the group's understated grooves and subtle effects lie low in the mix. Aside from two kicky covers of classics (the other is Marley's "No Woman, No Cry"), The Score's focus is on the stars' rhyming with the free-form grace of performance poets and showing that they've thought deeply about the issues they raise. --Douglas Wolk

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is Hip-Hop July 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
"The Score" is one of those unique albums that can never be outdone. Wyclef Jean, Pras, and Lauryn Hill all work together in giving us this classic sophmore album. Guest appearences by John Forte(a member of the Refugee Family), Tha Outsidaz(Rah Digga, Young Zee, Pacewon), Diamond-D, and Omega all do well, but it's really the main trio that make this album great. Wyclef's crazy flow, Pras' laidback rhyming, and Lauryn's angellic voice bring a beautiful flava to this LP that no one else could've done. "How Many Mics" is an example of all three members rhyme skills, especially Pras' who spits, ("too many MC's not enough mics, exit your show like I exit the turnpike"). "Ready or Not" is one of my all time favorite songs, because of the cool beat and the memorable last lines of Wyclef Jean("I think not I'll send a letter to my friends, a born again hooligan only to be king again") and Lauryn's opening line("I play my enemies like a game of chess") and lastly Pras' opening("ready or not refugees taking over"). "Zealots" is a well made song in which Wyclef sings the hook and Lauryn teaches Hip-Hop physics over an amazing beat. But it is Pras who delivers the best lyrical verse("I compress sound sets with my rap DBX, then drop vocals on my 456MPEX, bring terror to the shop of horror, as you cry meamore, the phantom dies in the opera"). "The Beast" is a weirder song and not one of my favorites, though it is not to be skipped. "Fu-Gee-La" is another favorite of mine because of its Caribbean lyrics and beat, and amazing chrorus by Lauryn. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars fudgees hit cd Jan. 12 2006
Format:Audio CD
This group is one of the few new age rappers of the many rappers of the day who weas good as a trio.They had a unique syle that hadn't been around at the time and i feel probably won't again. I hope these superstars will forever be in the rap/r&b hits for time indefinite. There big hit song "Killing me softly" will forever be a phenomonal hit. I hope for the success of wycleff jean he will always be remembered for theses people.

Format:Audio CD
With four massive hit singles and 17 million copies shifted worldwide, the Fugees did, indeed, score big time in 1996 with "The Score." Never before had a rap act ever being so highly praised whilst managing to sell so many records. After 1994's "Blunted On Reality" passed by almost unnoticed, the Fugees pulled themselves together, seemingly matured by ten years and really knuckled down throughout 1995 - the result of which was The Score. Displaying a youthful exuberance fuelled with a wise-beyond-their-years knowledge of urban society, Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill and Prakazrel "Pras" smashed their way into the public conscious and firmly established themselves as one of the most talented and popular Hip-Hop acts of all time. They achieved this all within the space of two years and with one album which would sadly be their last...
Inflated egos and a desire to prove their impeccable solo talents (along with scraps within the group) resulted in the demised of one of the most lauded trios ever. What is left is a legacy which we can only hope will be resurrected someday - although with Lauryn (or Ms. Hill as she now prefers to be called) currently battling serious personal demons, the future doesn't look good (I hope that genius brings out another solo album - surely can't be as good as "The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill" though...can it?!). Success, fame and power tore them apart and this album is the only real thing we have left to remember them by.
Adopting the alias "Refugee Camp," the Fugees brought something fresh to the scene in the mid-90's. Their fusion of rap and pop was exciting and very ground-breaking. It sounds not so today, but eight years ago it definitely was - before everyone was ripping it off.

5.0 out of 5 stars They SCORED with this album!!! April 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
In 1996, hip hop was a different place, although a few years from becoming the wack music it is now. Pac and Biggie were still alive, Jay-Z was getting started, Nas reigned supreme, and you had the Fugees, a group who were SO momumental together that their presence was always something to behold. This album, their second, is BRILLIANT. They released hit songs in 96 from this album, and they did what most other artists CAN'T do: they TOPPED their first album, and they did it with supreme excellence. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: Too many to mention here, but there is NO filler.
Production: Thumbs up, Wyclef earned his bones with the beats, and so did Pras, Lauryn, and Diamond D.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs Up.
Originality: Thumbs up, almost like A Tribe Called Quest in a way.
The Last Word: In today's hip hop, we could certainly use a group like The Fugees. But, I'm afraid it won't happen again, but you never know(Mase is returning)!!! But with this album, The Fugees collectively were on top of their game, as they really brought out the best in each other. Classic album??? Definitely. Another strong recommendation for this album. You will enjoy this.
