The Script is the Choice Music Prize-nominated self-titled debut album from Irish band The Script, which was released in the Republic of Ireland on August 8, 2008 and was released in the UK on August 11, 2008. Following success in the Republic of Ireland the album was released elsewhere in Europe in September 2008. The album entered the UK Album Chart with sales of 54,520 copies. The album went on to sell around 542,000 copies in the UK during 2008, and was the twelfth best selling album in the UK of 2008.
The album was met with mixed reviews by music critics. Timothy Powell of the BBC stated that the album "reveals a band that is fresh, vital and ferociously good." He went on to say that The Script are now positioned as "next big thing" and that the album entails "hip-hop, pop melodiousness, state-of-the-art production and anthemic rock." His overall summary was that the album is "Intelligent, beautifully crafted and compelling." Nick Levine of Digital Spy gave the album 3/5 stars while saying it was often "devastatingly effective" and that "A lot of people are going to hate The Script, a lot of people are going to love The Script." The German WOM magazin monthly went as far as writing: "Eigenständing und originell ist anders. The Script bringen die Misere der Musikindustrie auf den Punkt. (Independent and original [music] is different. The Script point out the music industry's demise.)" The album has mixed reviews in MTV Asia, which has praised "O'Donoghue's vocals are a pleasurably unique aural experience" though it also comments that, as a whole, "the album plays across a flat plane, with no big leaps, but no huge letdowns either."
Following the success of "The Man Who Can't Be Moved," The Script entered the UK Singles Charts at number one with sales of 54,520 copies where it stayed for two weeks. The album spent eight weeks in the top ten and was the twelfth best selling album in the UK of 2008. The album also entered the Irish Album Chart at number one, holding the top spot for five weeks. It had, of January 2009, spent twenty two weeks in the top ten. The Irish office of Sony BMG music presented the group with their first multi platinum award disc for over 600,000 sales of The Script. On Sunday, 18th January 2009, the album went back up to #1 in the UK Album Charts, a whole 5 months since it was first released, mainly because of the £3.95 deal on iTunes.
