    This album is truly remarkable. Whoever said Liam needed Noel to put together a great album was wrong. I listened to this album 16 times in one week it is truly amazing. 13 amazing tracks that really showcase just how great Liam's voice still is. Be sure to check out their b-sides as well.This album has so many remarkable sons not to mention 2 songs that are over 6 minutes. This is a well crafted album that is sure to make a splash.

    10/10 for this album eh? The guy who wrote that review must either be Liam Gallagher or be on some pretty hardcore drugs. So maybe this debut album is as good as any Beatles album? Or maybe it's better than Oasis themselves? I think not. It's not awful, i like Four letter word and some of the tunes are o.k but that's where it ends. I fear that the follow up will be panned because you can clearly see that they are running out of ideas. Who will they rip off next? The Beach boys? They've done The Who, Beatles and Stones to death. And as for Liam thinking he is John Lennon? I look foward to Oasis getting bac together in 5 years. Full Review »

    "Different Gear ,Still Speeding" is an album about love, hope,life & dreams.It sounds fresh
    free,uplifting,soulful,happy,and sensitive.A
    great new start for Liam Gallagher and co , a huge surprise for everyone , even for Oasis fans.Perfect in its imperfection and that's finally how a rock n roll record should sound.These guys should be proud and we should feel lucky to hear that great voice singing again classics such as "The Beat Goes On" , "Four Letter Word", "Wigwam" or "Kill For A Dream" to name a few!Best debut album of the year by the best new band of the year!
