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!Read more ›
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.
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?
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!
