What we said, and they said, about the elder Gallagher's comback

What we said
Noel looks more comfortable than he has in years, the calmer tempo suiting his delivery, but there are moments when you miss the verve and danger of Liam’s presence. The List

What they said
What Noel lacks in his brother’s electrifying stage presence, he more than makes up for in sheer class and musicianship.

Not as good as Oasis’s heyday then, but a modest career reinvention which took the best of what has gone before and reinvigorated it simply by flushing away the stagnancy which afflicted the group’s later years.
The Independent

Gallagher may lack the experimental gene but he knows how to write tunes – well, choruses – that make absolute sense in this environment … for now Gallagher is very carefully building his power base.
