What’s In Tune: New Music
Liam Gallagher│As You Were
This is the debut solo album for Liam Gallagher, the former lead singer of the band Oasis with his brother Noel and other bandmates. The tension and arguments between Liam and Noel caused lots of conflict throughout the years. Arguably, the conflicts and drama distracted and even outweighed the music that the band was making. Troubling to say the least. Now, Liam steps out with his first solo album after attempting to find success with his post-Oasis band Beady Eye. As You Were is a mix of rock legends: influences from the Beatles and more British pop rock royalty, but not much new for the artist who is more interesting when he’s arguing than when he’s singing.
Gallagher’s songwriting isn’t on his side either, as he was never a primary support in songwriting while in the bands. Therefore, he needs substantial support on every song, and some songs he’s not even listed as a co-writer. This shows one of his weaknesses in addition to his aging voice.
As You Were Tracklist:
1. “Wall Of Glass”
3. “Greedy Soul”
4. “Paper Crown”
5. “For What It’s Worth”
6. “When I’m In Need”
7. “You Better Run”
8. “I Get By”
10. “Come Back To Me”
11. “Universal Gleam”
12. “I’ve All I Need”
