17 Songs, 1 Hour 17 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

It was a deep-dish cover of the Roberta Flack oldie "Killing Me Softly With His Song" that pushed this record over the top in sales, but what makes The Score resonate is a smart male/female dynamic — the trio's third member is Lauryn Hill — a humanism that comes through both in rhyme and music, and, oh yeah, bizarre laughs. (One interlude features a Michael Jackson-humming Chinese-takeout owner administering a beatdown to a recalcitrant customer.)
