Album Rating: 4.5 | Sound Off


After many spins, a very very strong album. Most of the songs are what we've come to expect
from Noel's songwriting: Beatlesy tunes, stadium rock to-be-hits and pretty acoustic
numbers. But damn if they're not done as well as the best in Oasis' career. While, as an
Oasis fan, I can't help but feel certain songs would've been slightly better with Liam on
vocals, Noel's made the sound of his debut distinct (perhaps by the absence of Oasis's
buzzing guitars). The stand-out new sound is the disconess of AKA...What A Life! and if
that's the direction Noel's solo career will take him, all the power to him because it's
fantastic and a standout on the album. The Oasis bootlegs sound every bit as good mastered
that they did ten years ago when they first emerged, if not better. This record has a degree
of song-writing that's sorely absent in modern rock. 9/10

I'm just elated to see The Chief back in fell fervour and hope Liam can suck up his pride
enough to see how much better this is than his own album and hopefully start making
reparations.

One of the best of 2011

"As an American I have no idea of anything Oasis related other than "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova", and I intend on keeping it that way."

That is such a snobby and close minded thing to say...

Definitely Maybe and Morning Glory are both excellent albums.

Veeeeeery good. Blowing Beady Eye out of the water without any doubt. Altough I can't help but feeling that liam still is the better vocalist, especially for energetic tracks.

shit this IS good.

doesn't really remind me of oasis, too. i mean, similar vocals but the music seems a little more... i dunno, varied i guess, than what i'd normally expect from an oasis album.

oh and also, everyone who even bothers w/ oasis comparisons, no fucking shit it sounds like oasis - noel was the only one responsible for basically all their worthwhile, and certainly the vast majority of their popular, stuff.
