A Kaleidoscope of Emotions
freeDom chilD The Script
After taking a three year hiatus, The Script has finally released their latest album, “Freedom Child.” At 14 tracks and 49 minutes, the album marks a different approach for the Irish band. How so? For one, they are taking a stance against terrorism, as illustrated in “Freedom Child” or “Divided States of America.” But the context of the album is much wider, covering euphoria and heartbreak through “Rain” or the EDMinfused “No Man is an Island.” The new album comes off slightly more upbeat, pop and diverse than their usual soft rock leanings. It’s slightly inconsistent in terms of genre and themes, nor is it as touching as The Script’s previous album, but it is still a good dance album overall.
