The Script, Science and Faith, Epic, Sony

Riding hot on the heels of their breakthrough single “Breakeven”, the Irish trio has released its follow-up Science andFaith. The lead single “For the First Time” takes the Script’s proven formula of ballad-y pop rock and changes absolutely nothing.This is an album made for soundtracks to the Grey’s Anatomy’s and Off the Map’s, generic, bland and offering nothing new to the listener other than an aural wallpaper. The one moderately bright spot is “Walk Away” with features B.O.B. making an unusual cameo but overall it feels as if the Script is destined to become The Fray 2.0.
