    Just bought it last week - Aussie CD has 15 tracks and is not called Deluxe. Very happy so far. My nine year old heard the first track and on second hearing said 'this is one of my favourite songs'. Time to play Oasis for him, I think. Go Liam.

    This might have been answered before, but i take it none of the bonus tracks on the Deluxe and Japan versions of the album are available on vinyl right?
    Main album only, with the bonus tracks on the CD's / downloads.

    Shame really, because the LP really does sound a bit better...

    That’s right, none of the bonus tracks are available on the LP.

    Yeah three bonus tracks on the Japanese release for this one , there’s normally only one bonus on some albums.

    Noel's "Who Built The Moon?" album just peaked at 48 on the Billboard chart. Did his previous two do better?

    So, took me a while... but after listening to each of the Gallagher brothers new solo albums back to back, I'd have to say that I like Liam's album better, both in song quality and productions (especially production - Noel's album hurts my ears).

    And this is from someone who really liked Noe's Chasing Yesterday.

    Honestly, if they could've combined the best elements of both albums instead, working together without ego, it could've been one of the better Oasis albums.

    Liam's new album 2018, more punk rock apparently..wouldn't be surprised if he gets Steve Jones involved.

    Steve Jones involved ?
    Just a hypothetical.
    But "pUnK rock" ?
    Read it :google news.
    That's what's he's going after sound wise for next album I guess more like Oasis R&R ⭐️.

    I'm enjoying both albums very much. Hard to say which is the better listen, depends on the mood at that particular time. Noel's is lacking in dynamics which is something I'd think they would want given the sheer variety of sounds on the record. Listening to the interviews with him where he discusses how the record came about is a very fun and interesting listen. Does anyone even care that Liam has a writing team working with him? I saw that a few slagged him for it, I personally don't mind. He is quite like Elvis...................just ask him.

    I don’t mind he’s got a writing team except that even they are throwing in absolute atrocious Beatles references. Chinatown being the prime example. It’s like they gone “right we are writing for Liam, better shove some Beatles references in there”

    Not buying the "It's an homage" explanation? :D

    If Liam's actually saying "Look, I can't really write good songs, I have to give the people what they want or I'll go down in flames with the Beady Eye Express", it doesn't bother me a lot. I think he's got the chops, just needs to sort out some of the static in that head of his. Just listening to him tells me that there's a lot floating around up there that if he can just tune it in a bit, he'd be a pretty solid lyricist.
