Score's production was handled mostly by the Fugees themselves and Jerry Duplessis, with additional production from Salaam Remi, John Forté, Diamond D, and Shawn King The album's guest raps are from Outsidaz members Rah Digga, Young Zee and Pacew.

The Score's eclecticism, social consciousness, and pop smarts drew millions of latent hip-hop listeners back into the fold, showing just how much the music had grown up. It not only catapulted the Fugees into stardom, but also launched the productive solo careers of Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill, the latter of whom already ranks as one of the top female MCs of all time based on her work here.

The Score é o segundo e último álbum de estúdio do trio de hip hop Fugees, lançado mundialmente em 13 de Fevereiro de 1996 pela Columbia Records. O álbum apresenta uma vasta variedade de samples e instrumentos, com muitos aspectos do hip hop alternativo que viria a dominar a cena do hip hop no meio dos anos 1990. A produção de The Score foi tratada na maioria pelos próprios Fugees e Jerry Duplessis, com produção adicional de Salaam Remi, John Forté, Diamond D, e Shawn King.

13, 1996), The Score was a rap album for everyone. Recorded almost entirely in New Jersey’s Booga Basement studio, located in Fugees musical mastermind Wyclef Jean’s uncle’s home, the LP comes packed with hard-ass battle raps, nerdy pop-culture references, political rants, spiritual musings, outlaw fantasies, and much more. There’s real instrumentation for the rock fans, a fairly obvious Bob Marley cover for stoners and college kids, and enough soulful vocals from figurehead Lauryn Hill to court middle-aged listeners still on the fence about hip-hop. The Score is raw storytelling, Clef writes in his 2012 memoir Purpose: An Immigrant’s Story. Our recordings were pure - no tricks in sight - and it connected with music fans around the world. Exclusive: Wyclef Jean Talks Making 'Clefication' Album With Avicii & Performs 'Divine Sorrow'. That’s an understatement.

The artist just dropped his latest collection The Score – and we have it here for you to check out! Fugees's new collection includes 16 tracks on 1 disc(s) with total runtime of 01:13:24.

Mine copy didn't come with the 7inch. Purchased it directly from VMP, and it was sealed... Has anyone else faced this issue?

This is quite possibly the nicest pressing in my collection. Utterly immaculate in aesthetic and fidelity. Phenomenal work, VMP.

I have an OG copy as well, and I can't really tell the difference between this and the other. The 7" is a cool addition, but only one track on it is actually "the first time on vinyl". I don't know why that was ever claimed, probably a typo?This release is currently listed as "Out of Stock" on the VMP website.

More copper than orange really. Flat and quiet and a decent pressing. In my memory the original CD sounded better - thicker, fatter. But it’s been a while since I heard that.

Just opened my album, broke the seal etc, slid the first disc out, played no problems, went to play they second disc and realise I've got two disc 1's (side one and two) this happen to anyone else? it's the 2017 reissue by Columbia

Not sure if my 2012 is 180g but it's mastered by Kevin Gray (it has '[email protected]' in addition to the matrices for the 2012 listing). Something odd about this 2012 listing but this version sounds great.

tho i suspect from a digital source awesome pressing really clear vocals & punchy bass, has the same "record crackle" the cd has throughout the songs on the album.

Mid 90s masterpiece in intellectual Hip Hop with beautiful soundscapes and killer melodies, and fantastic vocals. When it comes to female rappers it does not get any better than this for me. Cinematic, retro and fresh, this ranks alongside the best of Nas, Kendrick Lamar and Tribe Called Quest.

My copy matches this press identically, except mine has the explicit lyrics sticker on the cover, and the labels are black & white, not in color. Same press or different?

The surface noise was added in the original master copies by the artist to give it a "vinyl" feel this might be what you are hearing even the mp4 has a surface noise sound/quality to it.

if this version has such bad quality, why are people asking up to £80 for it. I just bought the MOV version for £20 new. sound quality isn't bad so not really understanding the greed here.

I ended up with 3 copies and VMP refunded my money. The first 2 skipped. I haven't tried the 3rd yet, but their customer service is awesome.

I've had the same issue in the later copies I'ver received. I initially got a copy when it was first released and it was crisp and played great. Then I had to swap for another month and there was no other record I wanted at the time so I got a new copy and sold my original. Upon opening the new copy it skipped like crazy because it was warped. I contacted them and they sent two replacement each warped on the first record. They then sent a third replacement that wasn't warped but the spindle hole was oblong and oval so it skipped on zealots. It seems to me quality control started to lag as we got towards the end of the press of this album and it is now no longer available possibly due to this issue with the press. Just like you they refunded my money but I'm sad because I can't play this awesome record. I would agree their customer service is on point but im still annoyed by the issues with the press. I recently purchased a record flattener so hopefully I can play this soon.

Nothing wrong with my copy at all. In fact, it's probably the best recording I have of this album. I rip all my albums as well, and this one scored a DR14! So the dynamics of this particular album come out way above your standard hip-hop LP, which typically is walled around DR9-10. Quality control is another thing, and this seems to be the biggest VMP runs to date.

I had an issue with receiving a record scratched. I contacted them through their webpage and they emailed me back, and sent a brand new copy. They're actually pretty legit, so not sure why you're having issues. Try scrolling to the bottom of their website (without logging in with your member info). There are links to information that could help you.

I'm more than happy with my pressing. The cracks and pops in some of the tracks are intentional as they're either part of the recording itself (as the Fugees intended) or it's from the original record that they sampled... typical symptom of a classic hip-hop record. The records themselves are very sturdy and feel nice, and is a nice package from Music On Vinyl as usual.

Neither here nor Ebay have I found a "UO exclusive" 180 g version of this record. Most retailers are confusing the standard vinyl for 180g. UO has the Music On Vinyl release for sale now, so I'm not convinced this is a phantom listing. But if you have this version of the record (not MOV, not standard - please weigh it!) then let me know.

I am transferring my collection from deadformat to here now and just saw this post. I remember this being advertized as 180g, but comparing it to my other 180 gram records it seems to be 150g (guess I never noticed but thank you for this). Is this what you are trying to confirm?

Yeah, both of mine were in bad shape - a big bump on the gold side and the black side seemed to be really thin (to where the edge of the record was almost sharp).If you got yours from VMP they will send you another copy. My replacement was great!

I'am a member of VMP and they always have had great pressings so I was excited to get my fugees record since I'm such a huge fan of them. I played it today and was bummed to hear noticeable surface noise through out the entire album. Not sure its just my copy so I can't speak for all but it sounds pretty bad. I wouldn't purchase this version. Some parts are super loud with surface noise, almost embarrassing to play for company.Other parts the surface noise is tolerable. None the less there is noise thought the entire album whether it be minimal or major. album is a 10 but the vinyl pressing is a 4 at best.

This album was recorded to make it sound like an old record, the surface noise you complain about is actually in the master recordings, this is actually the best version of this album I've heard, my copy arrived in great shape and it sounds amazing.

There's a note on the packaging with the cocktail and album notes that this record came in: **PLEASE NOTE: You may notice what might be considered surface noise throughout this record. It is something that is a part of the original masters and is intentional (ironically).Whether it actually sounds good is a matter of preference and could probably be discussed ad infinitum, but I do believe it is intentional and the pressing is not to blame.EDIT: Whoops, I guess discogs hides replies by default and I didn't see all of the others. Apologies for repeating what others said.

Good to know that VMP will replace it. Sucks that you got a poor pressing. Hope that replacement copy works out for you.

Found that it was quite noisy on first play. Ran it through a RCM and now sounds great

This album is suppose to have some surface noise ironically... To some extent that is... It states that on the card that has the cocktail recipe... Maybe your turntable counterweight is not balanced right. Mine sounds perfect, unlike some of the VMP albums I have received.

It's beyond the intentional surface noise as I stated below. I contacted vmp and they said they will repleace it for me so no worries here.

You should probably check out a cd or digital copy of the album. There were "surface noise" effects added to the original recordings. The Fugees wanted it to sound like an old beat up record.

Just got mine today from VMP. Warm, clear, good pressing. Maybe you got a bum pressing. Def would contact VMP support. Great, classic album.

I'm not getting that on my copy. If a good clean doesn't fix your problem then send them an e-mail. They have solid customer service.

Yes I have, but the surface noise im experiencing is beyond the intentional noise put on the record. There are Some parts where the surface noise is just as loud as the vocals and makes it hard to even hear the song.

Have you heard the original CD??? They put that sound on the record so it sounds like a worn out record.

MusicOnVinyl reissued this album as well last year on a goldish orange color. Waiting to get my VMP edition in the mail but the MOV copy sounds great!

Clean press, no surface noise, big sound!

I have to agree with other reviews about the cover art - it's very poor and looks really lo-res, as if it was blown up from a smaller copy. The record sounds fine; though the fact a couple of tracks have record surface noise as part of the music is a little confusing!

I agree cover art is sub-par, although the pressing itself I can not complain. Not sure which noise you are referring to? Sample Noise? Overall its a classic, turn it up loud and enjoy.

A lot of background noise and clicks and pops throughout the whole record, even worse in quieter parts. I have given it a good clean but the problem remains.

Absolutely porous sound quality. A damn shame considering The Score might be the best hip-hop album of all time.

Manifest / outro is a slice of genius.
