Fugees - The Score
When you're asked about The Fugees, the first record that comes to mind was their 1996 success story named, The Score. Chances are if you haven't heard of the Fugees before, you have acutally heard a few of their songs without even realizing it. Songs like Ready or Not, Killing Me Softly With His Song, and Cowboys have been used in various modern day songs. This album is a classic that will never be forgotten among older hip-hop fans. Without The Score being released, chances are there would have been no success like there was for Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean. I go as far as calling this album an essential for every hip-hop fan. If you are really inlove with music, you should have this album upon your collection.
The downside on this album is.. Well, there is no downside to this album. It's the perfect length and has the perfect combination of artists. This album is a blessing in music history. Definitely worthy of the place it is gaining in the music emissions vault.

I'll second this review, quite an impressive album and this is coming from a sparse hip-hop fan. I owned it for a time, back when it first dropped and hip-hop was actually one of my preferred genres. I think I wore it out or managed to lose it; but I do remember playing it often. I was hooked to the hits, of course, but the album is packed with really good songs. It made a household name out of the band and household names out of almost everyone in it. A definite modern classic.
