Freedom Child - The Script
As I've said in a different post, before my music taste turned into what it is, they we're the rockiest band I ever listened to. The way they sing and perform never fails to astound me, whether this is live or on track. They bring a new meaning to music to me in ways I probably never will be able to describe. Even though my music taste is increasing, if you asked me for my favourite 10 songs, I can guarantee at least 2, probably even 3/4 songs by The Script will be there. I don't think a song has ever tugged on my heart strings more then If You Could See Me Now.
I have waited so long for this day to come, and here it is. Album 5. Freedom Child.
Back with a different sound, it's an album by The Script I guess I wasn't really expecting. It's more, I guess, modern than I was expecting, for the obvious reason that they had to keep up with the times. However, I absolutely adore this album. It was only a day ago for me at the time of writing (I went to their Brixton gig too, hence why this is being written today), but I can wholeheartedly say it's amazing. It's a new sound by you know it's them. The lyrics are absolutely powerful and accompanied with music that is perfect for each track. I also had the privilege of hearing a few new tracks live, and they are somehow better live than in studio, which I thought to be impossible.
The 14 track LP blew me away. It is by far the most powerful message the band have written and performed and it is perfect for the way the world is right now. The trio have stated themselves that the album was written to almost give the new generation a response and answer to terrorism, trying to unite everyone together. And thats what it is. It's an album about everyone and everyone being together. I find it a rather positive and empowering album too, with most songs containing self positive lyrics.
They just get stronger and stronger with each album, which I thought was impossible because even album 1 is a complete masterpiece.
Freedom Child. Let's go.
