The Score by Fugees

We all know Fugees are epic and this album is a classic but somehow I’d never actually listened to the full thing. I loved the music, but some of the bits and bobs around the songs weren’t quite my cup of tea. I’m always grumpy about clips and talking and radio and stuff, and there was a little too much of that for me. BUT, how can you argue with an album that has Ready or Not and Killing Me Softly on it?

Totally Krossed Out by Kris Kross

I can’t quite remember how we hit upon this album to listen to, other than a little bit of wine and lots of fun music discussions. I wasn’t necessarily looking forward to it, only knowing of Jump - and only that because of the Friends With Benefits and Pitch Perfect references.

PSYCHODRAMA by Dave

I really wanted to like this. I’ve enjoyed a few of Dave’s singles and his performance at Glastonbury was excellent. This album just didn’t work for me. It’s a concept piece, featuring Dave in a therapy session, and so the songs weave in and out of difficult moments from his life.

Straight Outta Compton by N.W.A.

Loved this so much more than I thought I would, good beats, angry ranting, and a great sense of camaraderie.
