Album Review

On their second album, typographically-annoying British indie rockers Yourcodenameis: Milo refine their sound considerably, stripping away most of the post-hardcore elements that often cropped up in their earlier singles. Unfortunately, what's left behind is a pleasant but forgettable gloss on the commercial end of contemporary indie rock. They Came from the Sun is not as pallid as the likes of Snow Patrol or any of Coldplay's many acolytes, but this is a distinctly weedy album in most spots. Paul Mullen's thin, colorless voice is not enough of a focal point for the listener to latch onto, and nor are his forgettably emo lyrics. Similarly, the characteristic slow build of Justin Lockley's guitars into explosive post-rock drone sections lacks the epic sweep of a group like Explosions in the Sky or Mogwai. Frustratingly, the album's first single "Understand" is actually terrific; built on the nervous rush of a New Order-inspired bassline and the emotional release of the album's most memorable chorus, it sounds like the best song Interpol has never done. Unfortunately, there's little else on this too-safe record to match it.

Customer Reviews

Very underated, adrenaline filled album!

Very undefineable due to the variety yet very refreshing due to the variety contained here. All the songs do not sound alike. Maybe two stinkers ( Take to the Floor and To the Cars). A definite one in a million, don't miss this the stars aligned for this one since the band is no longer together and they had an awesome chemistry together. A great offering in between all of the sludge that has come out this decade as a whole. Not everyone's cup a tea, and gladly at that.


Formed: 2004 in Washington, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Newcastle's energetic rockers Yourcodenameis:milo borrow from emo, punk, and indie. The band built a following by touring the U.K. with likeminded groups such as Ikara Colt and Mclusky, and then ventured to Chicago to record with Steve Albini, the results of which were released as the All Roads to Fault EP. The EP was released in the U.S. in fall 2004, and Yourcodenameis:milo played stateside gigs with Mclusky and A Static Lullaby around the time...
