Most people wouldn't.

Don't Believe The Truth was their comeback album, though. This one is just proving it wasn't a fluke.

I've been listening to it for a week now and I guess it's OK....It's still kind of rubbish compared to everything else they've done. What was with the bullshit that Noel was spraying a few years back saying that they 60-70 album quality tracks ready to record? After that, they put out a cd with 11 tracks....7 or so are garbage. What's the deal?

you seem to be in the minority, almost everyone on here seems to like it along with several reviews I have read as well...

So, you really think Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants and Heathen Chemistry are better than this album?

Sort of like U2.... Except U2 puts out a cd with 11 tracks where 9 are rubbish, and only do it every 4 years. Oh, and because the Oasis album kicks ass.

Mindless bickering.....

At the end of the day, Noel Gallagher is a genius.

Coming from you, that's not a surprise.

I can't remember the last time you came into B&C and actually liked a new release.

Haha this is so true! If it's not finding fault with Radiohead, it's Oasis now. Roy, why don't you go back to EYKIW? It's getting tiresome, really.

I bought this CD today, btw!

Although, Zoots, I'd say I don't feel I've enjoyed a Radiohead album thoroughly since Kid A. But yeah, I think a lot of the U2 police would have fits in B&C.

Apologies for not agreeing with your musical preferences.

At least I don't repeat my self ad aduseam when it comes to albums I don't rate. We all know how utterly tiresome that can be..

This is not about my musical preferences! You seem to come into B&C mostly only to put down bands that somebody disappointed with recent U2 likes. Clearly I'm not the only one seeing this.

Oh btw El Mel, what the hell were you talking about when the album leaked, that Bag It Up and Soldier On are bad songs?? Do you still think that? I like them. Anyway, this album sounds pretty good so far!

I never said they were "bad" songs, just the weakest. Bag It Up in particular isn't so much bad as it is a regression. It sounds exactly like a Oasis stomper should, but that's part of the problem. They've done that before, and so much better. And yeah, Soldier On goes nowhere. Definitely the worst song on the album.

Everything else is good/great.

I agree.

This is a pretty solid album from top to bottom. There's a weak track here and there, but that's negligible. The Gallagher Bros. are still a pair of assholes, but at least they put out decent music.

Early favorite: "To Be Where There's Life" - it's like "Go Let It Out"'s cool little brother.
