A lot of people have been quite torn about Oasis’ split, a lot of us don’t know what to believe. When Liam shot the first bullet and started speaking about what happened after the fight and discussing what happened, quite a few people jumped on his side (me included) because he’s the one who spoke first and you just wanted something to believe. Noel being Noel just sat back and listened what he had to say, got on with what he had to do (being a dad, writing new stuff etc) and people, including myself wanted to know what he thought. After a month or so Noel spoke out in a press conference, very professional and because he spoke in a calm way and using less swear words than Liam, people started to turn his way and take his side. Then again Noel has always been a media darling and Liam has always been the short fused, rash speaking angry one. Anyway you look at it, the point is they are both artists and their job is to create music for us to buy or just listen too.
I brought Beady eye’s album and all their 7 inch singles (mainly because I wanted to start a collection of something), but I generally brought Beady eye’s album because I wanted to see what they were bringing out. The album itself wasn’t great, didn’t light up the world and since buying it iv’e only listened to it about 4.5 times. For Liam’s first album where he wrote the majority of the songs, it was okay. Not deep lyrically, but I never expected that from him. I just expected loud aggressive songs with a certain word used quite frequently in most of the songs, which Is what I got and was rather happy. With Noel it’s different.
I expect a lot more musically and lyrically mainly because he’s a better guitarist and wrote tunes such as ‘don’t look back in anger’, ‘wonderwall’, ‘little by little’ and countless more just pop his name into you tube.
Being an Oasis fan I’m looking forward to Noel’s new material, I think it will be a bit different to his oasis stuff, obviously same words but a different feel. Personally, I don’t think Noel can lose because they’re a lot of die hard Noel Gallagher fans out there that will buy, like and listen to his songs purely just because his Noel Gallagher. Will it be better then Beady eye’s ‘Different Gear Still Speeding’? Who knows, only time will tell and only my blog will give my opinion of it.
