Format: Audio CD
The Fugees brought a breath of fresh air to the rap game in the mid 1990s. As gangster rap, with the likes of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac, dominated mainstream rap, the Fugees offered an alternative to those listeners who did not want every song to be about graphic violence and crime (although some of their songs still deal with similar subject matter). Their lyrics were clever and introspective, and their music was...in general, softer. Their beats were different too, often sampling jazz or soul in the middle of their songs. So, it's no surprise that they stand tall as one of the greatest rap groups of all time, for their talent as well as their inovation. Lauren Hill's voice is absolutely beautiful, and Wyclef actually plays an instrument (the guitar...and quite well), which is rare in rap music.
That being said, this cd falls short of my expectations. The fact is, the Fugees, for the most part, did not write a bad song. Indeed, their cd "The Score" could itself be a greatest hits cd. This cd offers a nice sampling of their music, but leaves out some very good songs (Zealots, for example). And, while the cd is advertised as including some work from the separate members of the Fugees (recorded after the 'breakup'), it merely has Lauren Hill's "The Sweetest Thing," and leaves off any of Wyclef's solo work. If you include Lauren Hill's "The Sweetest Thing," you should certainly have Wyclef's "Gone Till November," his remix of "Stayin' Alive," "Perfect Gentleman," and/or "Street Jeopardy." However, this cd unfortunately does not. Finally, the cd contains a remix version of "Ready or Not," while the original version (whic appears on "The Score")is far superior.

I've heard much better Fugees greatest hits albums.This was not the best version. You will always be happy listening to the Fugees, don't get me wrong but this album was far from their "GREATEST" hits. Your almost better off just purchasing their album THE SCORE and/or BLUNTED on REALITY!

This is nothing else I can say about this besides this was da Hip-Hop of the good old dayz, when things still sounded great! This album, I think, was just put together by Columbia Records just so peeps would know nothing new is comin further. Maybe there might be, but I seriously doubt there is. I miss the Fugees, I miss them being together on a record, rhyming and having a good time. This CD really brings back the memories of the three of them still being together. The hits "Nappy Heads" "Fu-Gee-La" "Killing Me Softly" not to mention solo efforts like "Gone Till November" from Wyclef "Ghetto Supastar" from Pras featuring Ol' Dirty Bastard and introducing Mya and "The Sweetest Thing" from Lauryn Hill, also featured on the Love Jones soundtrack. The FUGEES, really made a name for themselves in the 90's with "The Score" Winning Grammies for it, being labelled one of the best Hip-Hop/Rap acts of the 90's, like I said befo' I'mma miss 'em, God Bless 'em!

I was as pleased as Punch when this CD came out in 2003. For starters it had Salaam Remi's 'Mahogany Mix' of Lauryn Hill's "The Sweetest Thing" on it and I had been searching for that track for ages. The original version of the song is on the 1997 soundtrack Love Jones: The Music (1997 Film) and I heard the remix in a club sometime between '98 and 2000. I remember searching the four corners of London in vain, trying to get my hands on the 12". (It wasn't a hidden track on my European version of Hill's The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill though I've been led to believe it was on US versions). Anyway, as far as I'm concerned, that song was worth the price of the CD all on its own.

So I was happier still, to find out it also had the 'Remix Radio Edit' of "Nappy Heads". I'd seen the video on MTV and had always meant to get Blunted on Reality, the Fugees album it came from but I just never got round to it. I'm no hardcore Fugees fan; The Score is their only CD I own apart from this one, so The 'Refugees Hip Hop Mix' of "Vocab" added even more value, as did Salaam's 'Ready For The Show Remix' of "Ready Or Not".

But I can totally understand why real Fugee fans would be underwhelmed by this CD. Seven out of the ten songs on here are from "The Score alone", which is a bit cheeky, to say the least. I guess I was just lucky how things turned out for me. It gets 3.

I love this album... one of my favs... mellow album with great bass licks starting with "Vocab". Great rasta sound. Great rap. Killing me softly of course rocks, but also like "no woman, don't cry", and "Fu-Gee-La".
