listening to it right now, nice Beatlesesque intro

liking it so far ... upbeat, nice lyrics (not exactly meaningful but sound good Smile)

Lyrics are a little bit repetitive now ...

nice guitar solo 2 mins in

will be great to singalong to after a couple of beers

now just singing The Roller The Roller as a refrain

nice upbeat tune, but lyrics are a bit repetitive...

seems i was wrong and today youtube let me view a video through my phone! I love it, i think i may even prefer it to four letter word but only heard it twice so for me i wouldnt say its a grower. So excited about the album now.

oh I really really like it, sounds exactly like the Beatles!

Is it just me or does Liam sound 100% like Lennon, the drums even sound like Ringo playing and the guitar solo reminds of And Your Bird Can Sing + the backing vocals...

it's a great tune and very Lennonesque - just the lyrics are a bit repetitive

All three songs so far have been strong musically, but not so great on the lyrics - (4 Letter Word had the best lyrics of the three, but even that had a very repetitive refrain)

Hope the album doesn't do our head in by simply being too repetitive lyrically across the board.

Anyone notice a similarity with the Roller and this Lennon classic? Wink

Possible lyrics:

You didn't know what to say
But I'll commend you today
Can't get out your own way
Well hold on, hold on, hold on

I'm hiding out in the sun
I'm getting everyone done (?)
Just me hitting the wall (?)
Here I come, here I come, here I come

Just call me the roller
I'll squeeze and unfold you
call me the roller
I'm just gonna show you

So you've been crawling through a maze
An alcohol lemon haze
I've been watching you for days
You've been out of sight, alright, alright

I'll take you somewhere you never need to be (?)
I'll give you something you never need to feel
The only thing is everything is real tonight, tonight, tonight

Just call me the roller
I'll squeeze and unfold you
Call me the roller
I'm just gonna show you
Just call me the roller
I'll come blow you over
Call me the roller
I'm pleased that I know you

I'll take you somewhere you never need to be
I'll give you something you never need to feel
The only thing is everything is real tonight, tonight, tonight

Just call me the roller
I'll squeeze and unfold you
call me the roller
I'm just gonna show you

The roller, the roller.....

average at best. Sounds like an offcut from "heathen chemistry"

Bored me shitless on the 2nd listen to be honest.

Something tells me there wont be anything on the album as good as "four letter word"

it's a grower - you'll find it still playing in your head when you're brushing your teeth tonight.

Not as excited as Cloudburst, but not as negative as you - so somewhere in the middle on this one, but veering towards being more positive.

I just knocked out a quick review for Emz, see if she puts it up on misformusic later ....

i doubt that song will grow on me DK

it sounds exactly what it is, a song not good enough for one of Oasis's worst albums.

I actually prefer BTL to this. And seeing as I was hoping for an album of DM style belters like "4LW" I'm hugely dissappointed.

Theres so much music out there now its hard to get over excited about an average song

as soon as my internet is activated at home today the review will be up. Still waiting for my router to arrive! I think its a lot better than some of the songs on doys and hc by a mile tbh.

aye, but to be fair Emma thats hardly a compliment.

Both of those records were full of filler.

I really did hope this album would be like Definitely Maybe, but now its more like Arguably Possibly No

Surprised the reaction hasnt been more positive. I love it, great catchy tune and probably my favourite thats been released so far Cool it does sound very lennon-esue, but thats no bad thing. Cant find a decent picture of the artwork for itunes though, can anyone help?
