this self titled debut set by the ex-principle writer/guitarist and occasional vocalist of Brit-Pop band Oasis, is back proving that he dont need that obnoxious brat and younger brother,Liam hanging round.
some real good Oasis-esque tracks here including two shelved Oasis ones(now re-recorded) in "(i wanna live in a dream in my)Record Machine" and "stop the clocks".elsewher, there are several acoustic Kinks sounding ones also and believe it or not even one that comes close to being called disco in "AKA:what a life!".
so i guess that this offers nothing new to attract new fans, but does maintain a flow of decent tracks!
all in all a fairly good album,its not great but it is quite good.
my two favourite tracks below!
the death of you and me ***
soldier boys and jesus freaks ***
