The Script: #3 // Album Review

I've been a HUGE fan of The Script ever since "The Man Who Can't Be Moved," mainly because of their Indie-alternative-ish (or whatever) sound. Aside from Danny being a real hottie, this band wrote songs that really left me having an LSS that's why I memorize every word and every line in their first two albums The Script and Science & Faith.

But now, I don't know.

#3. Obviously, it's their third album. I've waited for this!! When I learned that they will be releasing a
collaboration with Black Eyed Peas', I was hyped. Totally. When I heard it, first thing I thought: "It's not really what I expected to hear from the The Script, but not bad!" Then: "Maybe the other songs would be better, so let's just wait for the whole thing. We'll see then."

So here's the complete track listing.

1. “Good Ol’ Days” 4:23
2. “Six Degrees of Separation” 3:52
3. “Hall of Fame” (featuring 3:22
4. “If You Could See Me Now” 3:39
5. “Glowing” 4:46
6. “Give the Love Around” 4:24
7. “Broken Arrow” 4:34
8. “Kaleidoscope” 3:41
9. “No Words” 4:05
10. “Millionaires” 3:11

The moment I got hold of these songs, I immediately tried to digest the whole thing. Point is, I cant! (:<) All that goes into my mind was: "What's this? Is this The Script?" Really.

I was waiting for the old The Script sound. That straight to the heart tune that first caught me. But, instead of being lost in the feel of the songs, I found myself lost in understanding what they were talking about. I just think that there is too much urban influence going on in this album and the rap parts are too much. Just Saying. "We Cry" way back in 2009 is more than enough to showcase Danny's rapping skills.

I was expecting an album to sing along with, not an album to rap along with. (=.=)

BUT!! It's not all that bad. Once I got the hang of it, I loved the songs. No doubt they're really good. 

My favorites are:
  • Six Degrees of Separation (I think it's the only song that has THE SCRIPT written all over it)
  • If You Could See Me Now
  • No Words
Nonetheless, I'm still a fan of The Script. I'll be waiting for their fourth, in the high hopes of getting that same old The Script sound.

College Friends' Birthday Surprise

My friends don't always talk behind my back, but when they do.. =">
College is not the most exciting part  of your academic life. Says who?

I've known these people just when I stepped in college. Some, a longer span of time than the others.

I'm 19 already! I can't believe this. My last year of being a teenager. <//3 Just when my parents are letting me go home late (still with the help of thorough convincing. But still.) Only now am I enjoying my teenage years!! And then It's my last? Oh God, why?

I really didn't expect that something like this would come up. It's finals and everyone's busy, so I was really surprised when they gave me these. Oh, you guys.=)

But anyway, whatever the number is. As what John Lennon once said:
"Count your age by friendsnot years. Count your life by smiles, not tears."

Thank you friends! :)
