Liam Gallagher’s eagerly anticipated second album Why Me? Why Not. was written by Liam with producers Andrew Wyatt and Greg Kurstin, and recorded in Los Angeles and at RAK Studios in London. Wyatt and Kurstin previously contributed writing and production to Liam’s all-conquering debut solo album As You Were, and Liam was keen to get even deeper with them this time. As a result, Why Me? Why Not. is a clear upgrade on As You Were but not a radical departure. Liam explains: I wrote some songs on my own for the last album, but this time it’s all co-writes. Reason being is I want it to be even better than ‘As You Were’. I know my strengths and I know my limitations. I’m an ok songwriter, but I’m a great singer and frontman. I want the second album to be a step-up because the hardest thing to do is to make something the same, only better. So that’s what we’ve done. Shockwave has seen Liam Gallagher make a typically full-throttle return. Super intimate sold-out show at Hackney Round Chapel? Biblical. Premiere and release of the long-awaited As It Was’ documentary? Completed. Featured on the cover of Q, who described him as rock’s finest frontman? Naturally. Liam Gallagher’s debut solo album As You Were was a critical and commercial smash. It debuted at #1 in the UK and top 10 in Australia. Liam was back where he belonged, selling out huge outdoor shows and earning major awards from Q, NME and GQ. Liam’s next double-bill of huge UK shows comes at the end of the month. He’ll play a sold-out Eden Sessions show on the 26th before hitting Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage on the 29th.

The music itself is OK, but uninspiring. 'As you were' was a great album with some verve but this just sounds like an album of musical wallpaper with nothing to convince me that Liam had any input in the songwriting. Too much whining about his 'long lost' brother in the songs that is getting a bit tiring now and a general sense that he is just plodding through songs he doesn't really have any soul in. The lyrics are all a bit arty farty. Rick Astley could've sung most of this album and pulled it off.
Sorry Liam, I think you're great and a real rock'n roll hero but this album doesn't cut it for me, getting through side B was an effort.
The sound quality is compressed, loud and muddled with more than a whiff of auto tune going on.
Oh well, maybe next time.
There are some great songs on here. You will have heard the singles which will give you a flavour, as will his previous album and maybe the first beady eye record.
Nick Zinner provides some great guitar work too.
Beatles and Stones......Solo Lennon, solo Macca (Ram and McCartney era), T-Rex and a touch of Slade all find a look in.
The production is quite mellow and polished which is.....erm.....nice......but that’s where we lose a star, a little more dirt and grit would have made this a real stomper a little less Radio 2 friendly. This is a grown up sounding album!
A few tracks are quite forgettable TBH but again I blame the production and it’s quite a brief album so a few times things don’t hang about to sink in. I think it’s a grower though. You need to give this one time.
Another great record from Liam. Highly recommended.
