Playlist: The Very Best of Fugees

by: Fugees

Here's the third shot at anthologizing the output of a group that released two proper studio albums. Playlist: The Very Best of Fugees follows Greatest Hits (2003) and This Is the Fugees: Greatest Hits (2010) with a slightly different round of selections. Unsurprisingly, most of the appeal in the disc is in its picks from the five-star mainstream breakthrough The Score (1996); almost half of that album, including "Fu-Gee-La," "Ready or Not," and "Killing Me Softly with His Song" is featured. Three tracks from Blunted on Reality (1994) and two tracks from Bootleg Versions (1996), all reasonable picks, are also here, along with a pair of surprises: the "Good Times"-swiping remix of the debut's "Refugees on the Mic," and the Michael Jackson-swiping digital single "Wanna Be" (2006). ~ Andy Kellman
