“The Ticket album review by Kevin Courtney, The Irish Times - Friday, June 18, 2010 Seán Millar Of the People Part 1 & 2 doctormillar.com He’s the poet laureate of Dublin’s dark side, an inner-city visionary who sees the ugliness beneath the cosmopolitan façade and the beauty in the forgotten corners of the capital. Of the People first came out as two limited-edition EPs on old-fangled cassette in 2009. Now it’s getting a proper CD release, and we the people should be thankful that the good Doctor is on the case. The album is sparsely produced but richly lyrical, and themes run from domestic despair (The Tree) to addiction (Money Can Buy Me Drugs) to the endemic corruption that’s done for us all (Back in Dublin City When the Fix Was In). There’s time for tenderness as well, in You’re Going to Find Out How Much Hurt a Big Heart Can Hold. Every visitor to Dublin should be given a copy of this – to see the real Dublin in all its ragged glory. See doctormillar.com *”
