The Script

Science & Faith
[Two and a half stars]

Mar 11, 2011

“I’m standing under a white flag,” sings Danny O’Donoghue, positing his Dublin trio as inheritors to the Emerald Isle’s greatest band. The Script have enjoyed Euro-chart success with a mix of lite rock, rap rock and Guinness informed crooning they call “Cetic soul” ”“ at once soaring, melancholic and treacly. Their second disc’s big ballad is ”˜For the First Time,’ about boozing your way through Ireland’s recession. But if O’Donoghue references locally, he thinks globally; B.o.B lends verses to the piano-drenched ”˜Walk Away,’ and O’Donoghue shifts from singing to raps that could come from an American kid who wouldn’t know County Kerry from Katy Perry.
