LIAM GAL­LAGHER AS YOU WERE

Total Guitar - - MONITOR -

After Beady Eye failed to set the world alight, the youngest of the Gal­lagher broth­ers had two choices; sit and wait for an Oasis re­union that may never come or come back with a solo record that re­minded peo­ple of his strengths. Al­though the lo-fi fin­ger­picked folky

Chi­na­town feels un­ex­pected, col­lab­o­ra­tors Greg Kurstin and Dan Grech-Mar­guerat seem to un­der­stand how a ma­ture Liam should sound while echo­ing his past band and Len­non-isms – the falsetto-in­flected Bold even ropes in Bone­head on gui­tar. It’s a bit light on full­blood­ied rock­ers but the de­fi­ant at­ti­tude in the strum-blues strut of YouBet­terRun sounds like some­thing Noel would have cooked up on a very good day.
