CD Review: The Script 

#3 (Epic)

The Irish alternative rock group The Script didn't get too imaginative when titling its third studio album. And the same criticism could be directed toward the album itself. Album opener "Good Ol' Days" is a rowdy rock tune that finds the guys really struggling to rap over some fairly solid vocal harmonies. They also struggle to add an urban edge to the hip-hop-oriented "If You Could See Me Now" and "Broken Arrow." "Hall of Fame" comes off better simply because they leave most of the rapping to the Black-Eyed Peas' will.i.am, who guests on the track. Elsewhere, "Six Degrees of Separation" and "Glowing" are clichéd ballads characterized by hushed vocals and predictable melodies that make Coldplay sound punk rock by comparison.
