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

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.Read more ›
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.

was good for giving the Fugees there respect they deserve this is a 5 Mic Classic wich is *****Classic
¿Cómo se consigue esto? Pues innovado en las bases, utilizando los "samples" de una forma inteligente (y no como única herramienta de producción..Murder INC daos por aludidos con esto) y por supuesto contando con la participación de tres buenos MC's que escupan algunas de las mejores rimas que he oido en Hip-Hop.
Asi es como se consigue este disco que contiene clásicos del género como "Ready Or Not" y "Fu-gee-la". En este mundillo del Hip-Hop donde una canción de hace 3 años ya se considera "Old School", "The Score" sigue sonando fresco, como si hubiera salido hace un par de meses."No Woman No Cry" y "Killing Me Softly" son ejemplos de como se debe reversionar los clásicos. En "Manifest", Lauryn Hill, nos regala uno de los mejores raps que he oido en mucho, mucho tiempo.
Desde el éxito de los Fugees, varios grupos han intentado imitar su fórmula (City High, Black Eyed Peas..) pero no se han dado cuenta que la clave de dicho éxito fue la unión de tres personas con tantísimo talento como son Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean y Pras. Un extraño fenómeno que puede que no se vuelva a producir.
