Liam Gallagher fans have hailed his debut solo album as a ‘modern day classic’ after hearing it for the first time ever.
‘As You Were’ is released today, and sees Liam stepping out of the shadow of Oasis and Beady Eye to record his first ever solo album.
But it looks like he won’t be needing to follow up his vow to quit music if the record flops, after it was met with huge acclaim from his fans.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “We want to THANKYOU for shining the light. A Brilliant album, Five star instant MODERN CLASSIC.”
No, we want to THANKYOU for shining the light. A Brilliant album, Five star instant MODERN CLASSIC.

Another fan claimed that it was Liam’s best effort since leaving Oasis, and even better than Noel Gallagher‘s High Flying Birds.
“Best album since the oasis days this”, they wrote. “Better than anything Noel has released and the best of Liam wow”.

Meanwhile, Liam recently opened up to NME about Kasabian’s claims that they would be responsible for saving rock ‘n roll, and threw cold water over their comments.
