Twitter is in love with Liam Gallagher’s ‘Wall of Glass’ single

The best reactions to ‘As You Were’’s first track

The verdicts are in, and Liam Gallagher’s pulled a blinder. Readying the solo album he once said would never happen, the ex-Oasis frontman is taking one hell of a risk with ‘As You Were’. But not only is he back this his gobby best – comparing brother Noel to Robbie Williams, regaling tales of hanging out with Snoop Dogg – he’s also hitting his musical stride with new single ‘Wall of Glass’.

Fans are pretty unanimous in their praise for Liam’s first big solo gambit, arriving a few days on from a triumphant live comeback in Manchester. That trademark swagger is there in spades, cut alongside frenzied harmonica, tub-thumping drums and some of the sharpest hooks he’s put his name to. “For me, it’s just a rock n roll tune, guitar music. Some people try to reinvent the wheel, but I just like to give it a good shine,” he told BBC Radio 1’s MistaJam. Here’s how fans are reacting.
