Not the anticipated roaring comeback blast that will put Oasis back atop the stadium-rocking heap, Don't Believe The Truth sounds like Team Gallagher has conceded to the superior firepower of Soundtrack of Our Lives, laid down their guitars and decided to go softly and sensitively into the super-sad-sack category, where they'll compete against Athlete, Travis, Keane and Coldplay for the crown. Picking up the piano proves to be a major hurdle here - copping the bashing bit from the Velvets' Waiting For The Man isn't a promising start. Letting Gem Archer and Andy Bell contribute songs isn't a winning move either. But if it means fewer weepy ballads and keeps Liam Gallagher from setting his thoughts to rhyming verse, it's probably a good move in the long run. From here, the only way is up.
