CD of the Month (May 09)
Yeah, I know its been far too long since I posted anything but life sorta got in the way and, well, that’s the way things go. But let me commend a CD I’ve been enjoying.
The Irish have come up with yet another impressive band! (Is it the Guinness, I ask?) This CD is the debut album by an Irish trio called The Script. See The Script
These lads have had some L.A. work done on their style — a style blending something Indie, something pop, something blues and something that’s their own — but they ain’t American at all.
I enjoy words and lyrics that are thoughtful and thought provoking — we have way, way too much contentless lyrics today. The Script write songs that are drenched with meaning: meaning expressed in similies, questions and expressions of pain and frustration. I especially like “We Cry”, “Talk You Down” and “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved”. Listen to the music and read the lyrics! These Dubliners know life and know what life can do.
Some reviews of this album complain the songs start to sound similar and when you’ve heard one song you’ve heard the others. Point taken but only to a point. I suspect this may have more to do with production than any artistic limitations. Maybe they can have a drink and chat about their next productions with those certain other musicians from Ireland!
