The Script – #3

7 Dec

The third studio album from the Irish Trio The Script was recorded in Los Angeles. ‘Hall Of Fame’ is the first single off the album and it is a perfect introduction. The track is a feature with Black Eyed Peas Will.i.am. The vocals of Danny O’Donoghue and Will.i.am work together so fantastically.

‘Good Ol’ Days’ is the opening track on the record and this is a more uplifting and positive side of the band that we don’t always see. The Script always have O’Donoghue who has brought a very personal feel to his writing once again and ‘Six Degrees of Separation’ as he wears his heart on his sleeve and sings about his own very personal break-up.

The most personal moment on the CD comes in ‘If You Could See Me Now’ that is an incredibly touching and moving song about the loss of a parent. Written by O’Donoghue and Mark Sheeran have penned the track and there is a real power to it as they wonder what their missing parent would make of their success and their achievements. The spoken word is something that works really well for this track and it is not surprising that the two may have struggled to sing these very personal and moving words. They pick up the pace again with ‘Give The Love Around’ in what is an incredibly slick pop track – and a nod back to a sound that we have become use to with their previous releases.

#3 is a great blend of sound as it sees The Script show off a more upbeat side to themselves – ‘Hall of Fame’ being the greatest example – as well as the ballads that they have become so famed for. There is something slightly more mature about their sound and their writing this time around – not to mention the personal element that will no doubt strike a chord with fans.

#3 is the best release from the band so far and this album will certainly bring The Script even more success.
