LIAM GAL­LAGHER

As You Were (Warner Bros)

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - FRONT PAGE -

The de­but solo al­bum from the ex-Oa­sis front­man of­fers a step up in qual­ity from his patchy work with Beady Eye. His Bea­tles ob­ses­sion con­tin­ues on the stir­ring bal­lad ‘For What it’s Worth’, and there’s plenty to savour amid the blus­ter of ‘Greedy Soul’. Adele’s Grammy-win­ning pro­ducer Greg Kurstin is on hand to en­sure that Gal­lagher’s pop smarts are well honed, but some of those com­bat­ive edges have been blunted.
