Music Review: The Complete Score - Fugees

I originally purchased this CD off the back of songs such as “Fu-Gee-La” and “Ready or Not” which I had heard many times on the radio and enjoyed. Sadly, it is clear why these songs received the airplay the others did not.

While not particular bad, most of the album is fairly average with a few high points such as the two tracks mentioned above.

The best part of this album is the 2nd CD which is full of remixes and live versions of tracks from the first CD including a live recording of “Killing Me Softly” from Brixton Academy and “No Woman, No Cry” with Steve Marley.

The most annoying part of the album for me is the meaningless talk that takes over at the end of many tracks, which I find irritating enough to make me skip to the next track.

On the whole this is not a bad album, but not great either.
