#469: The Score by the Fugees

1.25.2011


The Score by the Fugees (1996)

Favorite Song(s): "Ready or Not" and "Killing Me Softly" and "No Woman, No Cry" and "Fu-Gee-La (Refugee Camp Remix)"

Thoughts: I'll be honest with you guys. I owned Lauryn Hill's solo work, but the only Fugees music I ever owned...was from Elmopalooza. But! I absolutely know and recognize most of The Score. And I'm actually surprised how low Rolling Stone put this on the list!

The album mostly just reminded me how fantastic Lauryn is. The songs would be good, but then when you hear her verses or singing, it's just elevated to perfection. She is so gifted. And it's nice to hear a female rapper on the list too!

Epic album, seems as fresh as when released.

Amen! Love the Fugees, and Lauryn is out of this world.
