Eddie Anthony and Edan Dover are The Score and at this point in their career - they really know what they do well. They know what they're capable of and they do it better than anybody else. They make gospel-infused alt pop heavy on rhythm that's perfect for stadiums, arenas, and sync licenses for movie trailers and sports broadcasts. The Score makes that type of music better than anyone else and on their second LP, Carry On they have made it better than they've ever made it.
The rhythm section here always seems to be the focus. Big drums and bigger beats help carry the songs on the record along with the duo's vocal stylings that are perfect for singalongs. On Carry On, the duo has enlisted the help of some real heavyweights to help them get the job done. They've got Travis Barker helping out on "All Of Me", they've got Aaron Bruno from AWOLNATION helping out on "Carry On" and they've got Jamie N Commons with a guest spot on "Gallows." All three of these songs are tremendous parts of the record and they stand out almost as much as some of the band's singles - especially the title track off the album featuring AWOLNATION.
Other than the rhythm section and the features, it's important to note Anthony and Dover's ability to craft songs. They're damn good at it and they're especially good at it with The Score. They cater to their own specific sound and they do so in a way that's not comparable to any other act going. They know their sound, and they know how to make it. They don't do much different from song to song, so that's a slight knock, but if you like what they're doing then you're going to enjoy the record.
The Score's second record has some of their best work on it. They've put together 10+ songs of material that's well worth checking out.
