After three years away, Oasis finally make their return, and what a return it is! Although disappointing at first listen, after a short while, "Lyla" manages to stand up alongside many of their classics. It's a good piece of the indie rock that they do best, and should be a contender for their seventh UK No. 1.
They're always hotly anticipated singles, and the latest Oasis comeback is no exception. So, everyone listened once more, longing for the next "Don't Look Back In Anger", and were promptly majorly disappointed. However, after a few listens, you realise that this is actually a good, strong track - it's just that you know that Oasis are capable of so much better. Got to love the title line in the song though - a great crowd singalong that one.
