Follow-up to The Script's debut album from Dubliners Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power. "For The First Time" is the lead track and is the inspirational key to The Script’s second album Science & Faith - an addictive blend of hip hop rhythms, flowing melodies, sparkling hooks and poignant, story-spinning lyrics, with Danny’s mellifluous soulful vocals riding high over huge, anthemic choruses. Finding weighty, emotion-packed mini-epics came thick and fast, Science & Faith is far from a difficult second album.
The chorus to a pop song can be a wonderful thing. No matter how unsettling or scratchy the verse, no matter how atonal and challenging the bridge, everything comes right in the joyous rush of a decent chorus. The chorus is where storm-clouds are parted, waves calm, and sunshine lights up the darkest corners of the human soul as abruptly as fluorescent strip-lights in a scary cellar.
The Script have just such a chorus, and they know it: so much so that it has been crammed, with minor trims and fiddles, into almost every song on their second album. It’s their secret weapon, a chugging, stately thing which is designed to be equally at home in a stadium sing-along or as the soundtrack to an emotional montage in a TV drama.
What they do is set up a four (or sometimes three) chord trick, where the piano and bass play an urgent four-beats-to-the-bar and Danny O'Donoghue urgently crams a ton of words into a short melodic fragment, which he repeats a lot. He gets to rant and hoot, and they get to strike a few epic rock poses. Everyone’s a winner.
You can tell he loves his hip hop as much as his Keane and U2 – although let’s not get carried away, it’s Keane that win, by a mile – and his sandpaper croon carries a lot of emotional force, particularly on lovelorn snuggles like For the First Time and Nothing.
The downside of relying on this one good idea quite so much – apart from the rising suspicion that you’re stuck in a musical mirror-maze – is that songs which are not blessed with The Chorus seem to be half-finished. Walk Away, for example, is a moodier beast than everything else on offer, being closer to Eminem’s self-piteous darkness than Coldplay’s sunny optimism. But after a heap of consecutive Big Chorus songs, it’s hard to escape the feeling that something has been mislaid.
Luckily, it’s not a problem anyone has to put up with for very long.--Fraser McAlpine

Aside from the catchy lyrics, the music tracks themselves are wonderfully produced and expertly showcase their individual musical talents.
It may not quite reach the heights of their first album, with less variety in styles between songs, but to anyone who loved 'Breakeven' and 'The Man Who Can't Be Moved', this will in no way disappoint.
Soulful, calming music with a rocky edge....but it's the lyrics which make this album five stars for me.
Well these amazing guys did not let us down with this fantastic second album. The lyrics are inspiring, deeply moving and they touch you in some way or another. I love listening to this album over and over again....
My favourite songs are Science and Faith, You wont feel a thing, This is love, Walk away, Exit wounds....
I love it!
March 14th 2011 - Liverpool Echo Arena ... Cannot wait!!! <3 Truly amazing band x
Danny O'Donoghue (or Donny O'Danaghue as he is affectionately known in our house due to a slight slip of the tongue!) has such energy and a passion for music which is evident on the TV show and throughout every track on this album. Lyrics from the heart, sung by a fantastic vocalist and mixed with outstanding musical accompaniment and production, make for exquisite music to the ears. The four singles are strong but so too are the other six tracks, all of which hold their own. Personal favourites include If You Ever Come Back, Nothing, Dead Man Walking and Walk Away.
Apart from the occasional expletive, over which I have to sing an alternative word louder, this is great music for the entire family. The Script provide a perfect lesson in the power of music to express yourself and share experiences. Our nine and five-year-old daughters also love them - we have a lot of dead men walking walking walking in the back seat of our car on the school run! Can't wait for the next album and tour - we'll be there.
