Product Description

Product Description

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.

BBC Review

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.

While not quite as eclectic as their debut, Science and Faith is still packed with great songs, with catchy choruses that will be stuck in your head from the first listen.

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.

I was a great fan of the first album and had high hopes for The Script's follow up.....I wasn't disappointed. Stand out tracks are You Won't Feel A Thing, which sets off the album with powerful guitar solos and heartwrenching lyrics, first single For The First Time, and If You Ever Come Back, which is filled with soulful melodies that won't leave your head all day.

Soulful, calming music with a rocky edge....but it's the lyrics which make this album five stars for me.

I am a musician. I like many types of music. I feel that I shouldn't really like the Script, but their music just really moves me. This album is a definite improvement over the last with a more solid overall feel. From the start to end, the album has catchy chorus one after the next. This is by no means a classic, but I can't stop listening to the album. A guilty pleasure! What I will say is that the lyrics, rhythms and melodies really impress me. Best songs for me are For the First Time, Science & Faith, Nothing, This is Love and Exit Wounds. Not a bad album at all. If you like infectious pop by real musicians then get this...

If you liked the album "The Script" then you'll like this. Some of the tracks are reminiscent of songs such as "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" and my personal favourite "Breakeven". All tracks are very much in the same style - you'd recognise the artists as The Script without having heard the track before. Having really enjoyed the previous album, this one is also growing on me.

Give this album a couple of plays before you decide whether you like it or not - that's all it should take to hook you in. I wasn't sure on the first hearing, but then I am a little slow on the uptake. A few days in, a few plays, and when the opening number (You Won't Feel A Thing)comes on I think 'This is my favourite track'. Then the second (For The First Time, the current single) and I think 'no, it's this one.' Then the third...and the fourth... you get the picture. (I think in truth my favourite has to be track four, the title track) The fact is, there are some great melodies here, which is enough. But the arrangements bristle with energy and that lifts the whole thing from being a good album to being a great one. Sure to be seen as a classic.

I loved their first album and I did think that they would have to work hard to top it as it went to number one and did so well....

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!

Prior to The Voice UK, the only Script songs in our music collection were Breakeven and The Man Who Can't Be Moved. Shame on us! Now, thanks to the power of TV and the charisma of frontman Danny O'Donoghue, I'm glad to say we have both their albums. Their self-titled debut is great. Science and Faith is phenomenal.

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.

Nearly all the songs are deaply touching and have a meaning behind them. You can tell by the words each song is thought through passionately, a great album :)
