EDITORS’ NOTES

These Dubliners presented a new take on Celtic soul music with their 2008 eponymous debut and followed it with 2011’s Science & Faith. Both albums spawned monster hits that radiated a joyous spirit despite being woven with minor-chord melancholy. While the three-piece uses the same mixture of guitar, bass and drums that populate any number of rock bands, The Script are equally indebted to hip-hop and R&B. For its aptly titled third full-length, #3, the gentlemen worked with will.i.am on the lead single, “Hall of Fame”—it’s among the most uplifting and inspiring tracks in The Script’s catalogue and is perfect fodder to fuel your next workout.

Fantastic

I am a huge fan of the Script and I have not been disappointed by this album at all. I think that they sound a lot more confident in their style of music in this album, mixing the type of music they did in the first album with some of the great elements of the second album. As always, you can relate to all of their lyrics and they seem to hit a different nerve or emotion in each song.

Really Poor

Put simply, I was very disappointed with this album. I loved the previous two, and every song on both of them was outstanding. However, this album takes on a very rap/sing-speak style which is definitely not what The Script are loved for. I love their lyrics, and their really 'feel-good' music, but this album doesn't express everything that they're about. The way the songs are sung are just not up to standard, and even though I felt some of the lyrics were really good, they still weren't conveyed in the same way as the band normally do.

In my eyes, the top 5 songs on the track listing are the best on the album, but even they are not even half as good as The Man Who Can't Be Moved, Breakeven, For The First Time or Nothing. The simple structure of The Man Who Can't Be Moved is unrivalled throughout this album, whereas some of these songs seem rushed, especially some of the lyrics. I've always felt The Script always write quite 'crowd-pleasing' songs with plenty of choruses that light up arenas, but this album just doesn't fit the bill.

Eat me!!!!! ,
