Artist: The Script
Album: Science & Faith
Label: Sony Music Entertainment UK
In terms of growth, there really isn’t any for The Script’s second album, but hey, I’m not complaining. The first album was so awesome that a continuation of that unique combination of edgy soul-searching lyrics with unbeatable melodies basically makes this an unmistakable hit.
It’s true: these tracks are a lot slower, without those Eminem-esque sound bites that were so prominent in the first album. But the content and spirit of the album as a whole is very reminiscent of The Script’s style. It’s highly refreshing to see a band find their own style and hold to what defines them, instead of trying to reinvent themselves on every album. Well done!
Give these tracks a listen: “Science & Faith,” “Dead Man Walking”
