Science & Faith review

Passions for The Script

Music experts are not very delicate with this band and assess its records with extreme severity, while colleagues do not conceal envy and even antipathy. What is wrong with the Irish pop-rockers The Script? Probably, they caused this attitude to them by seeming effortlessness of their initial success on the domestic and international stage. Structurally simple pop-rock with plain, literally for any recipient, texts, seems doomed nowadays and unable to compete in its pure form with the leading contemporary trends. However, this is the music that became The Script powerful weapon. Whatever cruel attacks critics and other performers cast on them for the absence of own style and ideas, they seems helpless to fight the facts, especially when these facts are so consistent. The eponymous debut album by The Script sold nearly two million copies with its tracks having a long stay in all possible charts. It means that impartial listeners who are only interested in having good music welcomed The Script pledging their long-lasting love and respect.

Nothing changed, everything good

Are really surprised at their desire to make the new work similar to the previous one? The second album by The Script, under what you might call a philosophy-related title Science & Faith, is decorated with a fine cover reflecting the meaning of these words. But this is where the highly intellectual part of The Script product ends as we come back to their standard format. Actually, this is a standard format for any pop-music product. How can we argue with it if the album has ten tracks and lasts about forty minutes while the lyrics highlights the problems that have been discussed most widely in the history of humanity. Texts open discussions where anyone can take part, and at the same tine the language is so simple that the song becomes personal to everyone. Science & Faith is not a concept of the new CD, but also the title of one of the songs, not the best and the worst here. This is far from a philosophical subject, but a lyrical piece, one of those that have become The Script trade mark. The first two tracks, You Wont Feel A Thing, and For The First Time, will certainly make you feel good if you liked The Script before, or they will definitely make you put this record down and forget it if this band annoys you.

Science & Faith should become popular music

Pop-music is, as all of us know, popular music, and that is the music loved and savored by wide masses where boundaries between ages, nationalities, social statuses and other differences are erased. Only one thing unites these mortals, the desire to listen to simple music with simple texts, just to have a good background, to relax. Pop-rock from The Script, including the music featured by the band’s effort called Science & Faith, meets all these requirements. Even the guitar that we hear here is no irritation to ears as it is very light and practically inseparable from other instruments. Danny O’Donoghue’s vocal remains the band’s main hope and tool. This man does know how to sing and makes the other members to adjust to his singing. Danny’s vocal arsenal is wide and complex, and this allows him, like any other young ambitious performer, to try some experiments on different occasions. You can feel it on Walk Away, and This Love, where vocal parts carry you smoothly from pop-rock to R&B, and this change of acoustic surroundings must do a lot of good to you. Briefly speaking, the Irish trio did a good work, building on their advantages, to release a fine album oriented at a very wide audiences.
