Ready Or What?: The Fugees: Brixton Academy, London

David Stubbs, Melody Maker, 2 November 1996

THREE NUMBERS. Over some 40 minutes prior to the encore, that's all they manage to play. Three numbers in full. And two of them are covers — Bob Marley's 'No Woman, No Cry' and, of course, Roberta Rack's 'Killing Me Softly'.

Total word count of piece: 526
