Sound — 9
To start of: This album is severely underrated. It tops a lot of albums that made the top of the charts in 2005. OAsis has a way of letting the music flow into eachother. All instrumentes get togetehr at one point. Soemthing that happens in Turn up the sun. A beautiful song with an even more beautiful guitar riff. It's a songs that makes your mind stand still for a moment and let it get taken over by the music. They've made this album one of their best works during the ages. People thought they could never top an album like (What's The Story) Morning Glory. But this one was getting really close if you ask me.

The Liam brothers have a different sound. Liam's voice follows the music. It has a annoying (in the good sense for once) thing to it. It is perfect for the music that Oasis brings. However when they want a song to hit the heart like 'The Importance Of Being Idle' Noel will take control. Noel shows the listeners what an amazing voice he has and that he is as good as his brother. In my opinion soemtimes even better. The words to the music stay the same. Nothing world-moving but straight to the point.
Overall Impression — 9
You want a good album? Take this one. They have had their time of doubts. No one believed in OAsis anymore after 'Be Here Now' and 'The Masterplan'. But they proved with this album that they are still masters of writing songs. Even though the worst OAsis song ever (imo) is on it (referring to 'Mucky fingers') this album is something the GAllagher-brothers should be very proud of. It show they haven't lost their touch in making music and they still have much to show us.
