The Script album review

A follow-up to their two-million-selling debut album in 2008

Science & Faith
2/5

As a follow-up to their two-million-selling debut album in 2008, Sony has churned out another well-produced yet mediocre, uninspiring offering from The Script. Expect stadium-style guitar riffs in the U2 vein, a few dips in and out of squeaky-clean rap, and overly enthusiastic (and unconvincingly sincere) Maroon 5-esque pop vocals from cheesy Dublin frontman Danny O’Donoghue. The boy-next-door gift-wrapping no doubt played a part in elevating Science and Faith to the number-one spot in the UK album chart last month, but its packaging can’t mask the tedious lyrics: ‘I would take it on the chin for you,’ sings Danny on ‘You Won’t Feel A Thing’. Oh, the irony.
