    Everything may remind you of something you’ve heard before, but Gallagher remains a singer who can deliver utopian exhortations and sneering put-downs with equal conviction, even in the same song.

    There's real creative confidence on display here. [Jul 2022, p.92]

    C’mon You Know itself is a bit of a cracker, finding a ‘repentant’ Liam (‘I admit that I was angry for too long’ – choir-enhanced opener More Power) gleefully infuriating his usual detractors (with Diamonds In The Dark’s ‘Now I know how many holes it takes to…’ hook), delivering catnip ballads (Too Good For Giving Up), hitting all the right Liam Gallagher buttons (Don’t Go Halfway) and occasionally kicking hand-me-down Stonesy arse (Everything’s Electric).

    C’mon You Know might be his best solo album so far. Even if his singing voice or public persona turns you off, there’s substance here. Just don’t expect to be taken on some mystery tour. You know, the magical kind.

    With Liam’s solo career on a high, it’ll be interesting to see where more experimentation leads him next - although somewhat of a mixed bag here, it’s thrilling to see him stray from the formula he knows too well.

    Gallagher retains a slight edge to his voice that enlivens even staid settings, but this gift isn't necessarily necessary as his urgent delivery does give the album a driving force. He's working in a tonier setting, relying heavily on studio wizardry and polish, yet Liam Gallagher remains a rock & roll star, the kind who turns generic material into something worth a listen.

    C’mon You Know’s problem is that, after the initial bluster of his two preceding albums, it just sounds distinctly pedestrian, complacent and reflective. The addition of wisps of trippy phasing, looped drums and a diversion into dub (eek!) all add up to songs that seem just a bit too contrived and calculated to really feel like he ‘means it man’.

    Mad fer it! Maybe his best. Banger after banger. Not exactly "experimental" but definitely mature and a natural progression for R'Kid.

    This is easily the best British album released this year. Liam Gallagher is aging like fine wine.

    I always listen to new albums twice before forming an opinion, but I knew straight away that this was an absolute masterpiece. My favorite track is "Diamond in the Dark", and I also really like "Everything's Electric".

At the end of the day though it's quite a forgettable album. There are a couple of decent tunes, couple of stinkers too though. I definitely don't hate it, it just didn´t end up being my cup of tea (Ironically that's what's been happening to me with Noel's solo music since 2018 LOL) . Hopefully he bounces back with a banger :) Expand

    main problem of Liam songs is they can be good at first but have no longevity... not listening again in a few days. You immediately realisemain problem of Liam songs is they can be good at first but have no longevity... not listening again in a few days. You immediately realise they dont "stand the test of time"... "people talking like they're Gods" (More Power), "you've been boring" (The Joker), as also all of I'm Free... seems like he talks about himself... If you're really Oasis fans, you don't support his ego, that means no Oasis reunion. Expand
