Alternative band The Script released their second album, Science & Faith, which skyrocketed to number one on the UK charts. Science & Faith picks up comfortably where their first album left off, with no wild deviations or experiments in music. The Irish trio return with their famous alternative rock sound, which is sure to keep fans happy. Opening track You Won't Feel a Thing is an excellent pop-rock song that shows off lead singer Danny O'Donoghue's vocal flexibility. He switches between sharp verses and moving choruses without missing a beat, adding a dash of hip hop. It is a fast-paced yet poignant feel-good song about overcoming adversity. However, it is their hit single, For the First Time, that rightfully shines. Beginning with sparse acoustics, the love song is instantly endearing, as O'Donoghue sings about difficulties in love. He repeatedly 'oohs' shamelessly in the chorus, but the effect is rather nice: the vocals blend perfectly with the melodies, steering clear of traditional cliches. True to the album's title, Science & Faith goes on incessantly about hardship and break-ups. The songs may be fresh on their own, but the album soon becomes tiresome. The tracks quickly begin to sound the same, as the entire album becomes one long song. The Script devotees will adore this album, while moderation is suggested for everyone else.
