180g Vinyl LP From Former Oasis Frontman!
One of Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums of 2017!
Former Oasis frontman, Liam Gallagher, releases his debut solo album which features the single "Wall of Glass".
As You Were was recorded in two locations. Greg Kurstin performed all of the instruments on the four songs that he produced ("Wall Of Glass," "Paper Crown," "Come Back To Me" and the psychedelic whoosh of "It Doesn't Have To Be That Way"), while Dan Grech-Marguerat produced the remainder of the album at Snap! Studios in London.
The result is exactly what you would have hoped a Liam Gallagher solo album would sound like: the passion for the classic '60s/'70s influence that he's always had has been updated for the here and now. "I didn't want to be reinventing anything or going off on a space jazz odyssey," says Gallagher. "It's the Lennon Cold Turkey' vibe, The Stones, the classics. But done my way, now."
"The Gallagher brothers waited until nearly the exact same moment to make their best music in ages, releasing great albums within weeks of each other. It's almost as if they're locked in some sort of competitive sibling rivalry or something. Neither wandered much from the Oasis template, matching Brit-pop charge with sunburst Beatles melodies. Eight years down the road from Oasis' messy split, there are moments of grown-up honesty: 'In my defense all my intentions were good,' Liam sings on As You Were's hilariously titled 'For What It's Worth.' Noel's version of same was the angsty old-timer's warning 'Be Careful What You Wish For.' But the pleasure here came during sweet, swaggering anthems like Liam's 'Wall of Glass' and Noel's 'Holy Mountain,' knock-outs rich with the smell of 1995." - Rolling Stone, 50 Best Albums of 2017
