EDITORS’ NOTES

The Dubliners’ transition from Celtic folk-rock to unashamed power pop is complete. “Rain” sets the tone: a glorious, arms-aloft anthem built to conquer summer dance floors and arenas. The trio haven’t gone full David Guetta, though. Carefully crafted beats and euphoric choruses on tracks including “Written in the Scars” still have the band’s rock DNA pumping through its veins. The band purposely gave Freedom Child a single ballad, and “Arms Open” easily justifies its selection. It’s a heady and open-hearted invitation to belt it out alongside Danny O’Donoghue’s showstopping vocals.

No clean version?

Where is the edited version? Love the Script and have every album but won't buy anything explicit to play with my kiddos.

Not a big fan of "Rain"

It screams mainstream pop a little too loudly. (A clean version wouldn't hurt either)

Awesome album.

Totally in love with this album. It's really good and the songs are amazing. Love the album, love The Script - explicitness and all. 'Written in the Scars' and 'Freefom Child' have to be two of my favorites. 'Divided States of America' is a song in another class though. I love how artists are putting out political songs that are subtle in their messages and disapproval of the current state of affairs and I hope they all keep it up. ☮️
