Bands such as the Kooks, Kaiser Chiefs, Wombats, Pigeon Dectives have really managed to get away with selling a shed load of albums due to clever marketing by record companies and backing by our wonderus music paper the NME!
Unfortunately that has left Millburn's incredible first effort 'well well well' low down on many peoples shopping list! A sad fact is that this second, equally as good effort 'These are the facts' has suffered the same fate! After a few listens you'll know once again these have produced an album containing 12 works of Indie pop genius! Crammed full of clever lyrics and intricate guitar parts

Lo and Behold- A very catchy first opener! Bring in Millburn's ska influences, basics lyrics that are meant to hook you in, does a good job at crashing in less than two minutes!

What Will You Do (When the money goes)-First single and a prime example of just how talented this band are! This is much more mature than anything off 'well well well'! A great floor filler! Crashing drums! Great lyrics and set the standard for the album.

Wolves at Bay- The sound of this track will always draw comparisons to the Artic Monkeys, and is a possible contender for a single! Once again lyrics are fantastic! Continues the albums catchy theme!

Summertime- slows the tempo down a bit for the first time, and as shades of the Corals first album in it! Bit of liverpulian swagger is always good thou! Possible single, but the slow tempo would count against it!

Lucy Lovemenot- This is by far my favourite on the album! Possibly as good as 'What will you do'. The lyrics about a girl who has a reputation for 'putting it about'. Despite its upbeat tempo, the cleaver lyrical content makes it a very sad song!

Gone is the guitar crashing, off beat rythym, raw arctic-monkeys esque anarchy that was the sensational "Well Well Well". But before you hit the back button on your browser in discust, here me out. Milburn as a band have matured, there is no questioning that. The music has more structure, more delicacy and more form. However, you can't help but think, is this just a transition album to what is still to come from the Sheffield four-some? Maybe. Also this album doesn't have that smack you in the face and leave you there impression, "Well Well Well" had. Maybe. And this album will take you longer to get into. Also maybe.
But, even on just my third listen, I am picking up all the subtle guitar picking and the subtle lyrical genius that got me to stop and listen to Milburn in the first place.
Yes, I'll admit I felt a tad disappointed on my first listen, but isn't it the albums that take you a while to get into that end up becomming your favourites? Milburn have not lost there raw energy to become more mainstream, they are just showing their capabilities with something different. If they made a copy of "Well Well Well", you'd be happy for a month, but subsequently get bored. With "These Are The Facts", Milburn have left us with an album to ponder, an album to wonder, but mainly an album to appreciate and get excited about the future of one of the brightest things in Britpop today.

Noticeable songs - What Will You Do, Summertime and Cowboys and Indians.

I was tipped off about Milburn by a colleague at works who'd seen them at the Carling Leeds Festival in 2006, Having never heard of them before I took a gamble and bought the album 'Well Well Well'. The gamble certain paid off because it would be in the top three of albums that I bought last year! I was struck by the raw feel of the music, the catchy tunes and the youthful lyrics.

When I heard Milburn were bringing out a second album I pre-ordered it straight away. Much excitment ensued until the day it arrived and I played it, oh dear I was disappointed.

Gone was the raw sound, to be replaced by a more mellow, more polished and better produced sound. Don't get me wrong this isn't a bad thing, but I prefer the rawness of 'Well Well Well'.

I've heard 'These Are The Facts' described as a more mature album than 'Well Well Well' - is it possibly a case of Milburn mellowing with age?

Having originally got in to Milburn through demos given to me by friends etc, I always knew that their first album was going to be a good one. Their second however, was a completely different matter.

I refrained from buying it for at least a month just in case it didnt meet my expectations, but why I ever doubted them is beyond me. I've heard people call Milburn 'an Arctic Monkeys style band...but not as good' in the past, and this does them no justice whatsoever. They're a completely different band with their own style, now developed to the full in 'These Are The Facts'.

They may have slowed it down a bit, but it's done wonders to their sound. It seperates them completely from the bands they were considered to be emulating, and songs like 'Summertime' and 'Sinking Ships' make you want to sing along, and for me, put them a cut above the rest.

For goodness sake, do yourself a favour and buy this album, you definitely won't regret it!
