    Like Blunt, the Script trundle steadily down rock's middle road. Unlike him, they seem to be enjoying the ride.

    The best songs here sound as if members of toothless soft rockers like the Fray or Augustana were fixing for a bar fight, maybe even one they could win.

    Those seeking the key to The Script's success will remain puzzled. [October 2010, p. 113]

    Swamped by the same safe, repetitive, and unadventurous production, the majority of the ten tracks are indistinguishable from one another, making Science & Faith a solid but pedestrian and uninspiring affair.

    The Script have enjoyed Euro-chart success with a mix of lite rock, rap rock and Guinness-informed crooning they call Celtic soul - at once soaring, melancholic and treacly.

    Mid-tempo guitar rock prevails; so does O'Donoghue's way of raspily soaring through choruses as if his voice has broken free from its moorings.

    I liked their previous album, so this one was a no-brainer. Every song is on the CD is great. It is refreshing to see that good lyrics haven't died yet like most current music. The only complaint is that it is like most of The Script's songs in that they are usually pretty same-y. This makes a great CD to own because the songs have such a widespread likeability about them.

    The much matured and acceptable nice album that may rise them to a limited fame but they have to create some more lyric centered songs to get into mainstream Full Review »
