We gave it an A

What a shock: a smooth, well-produced rap album that doesn’t have Dr. Dre’s fingerprints on it. The New Jersey-based trio the Fugees’s second album The Score showcases their acrobatic lyrical technique and restless intelligence. And unlike much East Coast rap, The Score feels warm and intimate — partly because the instruments are live but also because the Fugees sound so relaxed and casual.
