With Science and Faith, gentle rockers The Script continue to cook candy-cane rock with a fresh batch of single-idea songs that reverberate well with the teenage girl crowd. Not much has changed since 2008's self titled debut, aesthetically or otherwise. But despite simplicity and a mostly made-for-TV view of both love and loss, the optimistic hooks and sap-laden bedside chatter is much more enjoyable than a significant amount of today's popular music.
