MojoJun 26, 2020Opener Wall Of Glass resounds with stirring audience participation while a robust rhythm section and lively Hammond organist help cut through the din. [Aug 2020, p.86]
Q MagazineJun 12, 2020The likes of Once and Now That I Found You suit the stripped-back aesthetic perfectly but it's the strings-assisted version of Sad Song that is the real showstopper here. [Jun 2020, p.100]
Jun 12, 2020The arrangements on “MTV Unplugged” are occasionally overstuffed with stately “Eleanor Rigby” strings, but I prefer them to much of the studio material, since they’re airy enough to allow the unvarnished snarl of Gallagher’s voice to come through loud and clear. ... The crowd, and the record, comes alive most when Gallagher indulges in some old Oasis classics.
Classic Rock MagazineJul 6, 2020Even when exhorted by chanting fans, Liam's solo hits can never quite match Some Might Say's enduring emotive appeal. [Summer 2020, p.89]
Jun 12, 2020Those days are far enough in the past to make this entire MTV Unplugged an exercise in nostalgia, a sentiment underscored by the rose-colored solo song "Once," but Liam is still in fine form, making this record an endearing and entertaining listen for anybody who shares fond memories of the glory days of Cool Britannia.
Jul 28, 2020This is an excellent release for fans of Liam Gallagher. Obviously if your not a fan then this is unlikely to be your Damascus. TheThis is an excellent release for fans of Liam Gallagher. Obviously if your not a fan then this is unlikely to be your Damascus. The tracklisting is superb with a mix of vintage Oasis tracks and mostly his solo singles. It must have been hard to pick a set of songs for this such is the array of material he could have picked from his Oasis days but he has gone for tracks more or less tailored for this setting. There is an interesting take on "Some Might Say" and a mellower "Champagne Supernova". The inclusion of "Sad Song" is a masterstroke as is the omission of "Wonderwall". His voice is in great shape here too considering what its been through. Who would have thought that in 2020 it would be the younger Gallagher brother bringing out great records year after year.… Expand
