An open yet funky collage of hip-hop, soul, blues, jazz, and reggae, the Fugees' second album, The Score,
is a great step forward for the New York trio. On their debut, the
Fugees had sketched out a pattern similar to the multi-ethnic, edgy
music on The Score, but they didn't deliver it with the authority that they do here. They cover Bob Marley's No Woman, No Cry and Roberta Flack's Killing Me Softly, which gives an idea of their range, as well as their intent to carry on the soul / R&B tradition.
