Album review of 'What Doesn't Kill Us' by What Made Milwaukee Famous released through Barsuk records.

What Made Milwaukee Famous What Doesn't Kill Us Album

What Made Milwaukee Famous’ debut album was released in 2006 and showcased a shed load of talent, their catchy tracks are full of hooks, it was so good it’s close to being a guilty pleasure.

2 years down the line the band offer us a second album, ‘What Doesn't Kill Us’ there’s no sign of feeling guilty about liking this album, it’s been smoothed out, the band have really grown, this is a indisputably great album. ‘The Right Place’ is 2 minutes of perfect rock, it echos sounds of Weezer, Fountains Of Wayne and Nada Surf and it is on a par with any of their best tracks.

What Doesn't Kill Us is an album that’s easy to fall for, it’s honest and kept to a simple formula There are moments of Coldplay/ Snow Patrol adult-friendliness but they’re modest and they don’t outweigh the grittier moments.

Michael Kincaid is a great vocalist and frontman and tops of What Made Milwaukee Famous’ winning formula. ‘What Doesn't Kill Us’ is a rare treat for a second album and is out album of the week.

Rating 9/10
