Early oasis, when liam was just a bloke who sang and went to manchester city matches. Not that he isn't still beautiful and talented, i just prefer the early raw Oasis.

"The DVD- "Live by the Sea", captures the intense bi-polar nature of Oasis: the triumph and failure, the excitement and the disapointment. The greatest thing about Oasis is their honesty.. Oasis never fakes it, and this DVD bears proof of that.The performances on "Live by the Sea" either reach scorching heights, or fall with a thud. "Slide Away", one of the most powerful songs in the Oasis discography, doesn't seem to translate well into the live performance on this DVD. Liam Gallaghers live vocals do not here match what he achieved with the recorded masterpiece on the "Definitely Maybe" CD. The mighty "Cigarettes & Alcohol" and "Live Forever" also fall short of the sonic majesty of their LP cousins.Any disapointment felt from where Oasis stumbles, however, is over-powered by the tunes where Oasis hit their mark. The raucous opener, "Rock & Roll Star", is a splendid dirge that bears the energy and bravado of Liam and Noels Rock & Roll heritage."Columbia" is sheer perfection in its insidious power, and Noel's acoustic "Talk Tonight" is profoundly moving.The Crown Jewel of "Live by the Sea", however, is the astounding performance of "Some Might Say". This DVD is an early performance by Oasis, and to hear this well loved song in its infancy is a privledge. Liams intense yowling, somehow blends perfectly with the lyrics to mezmerizing effect, pointing the way to Liams future as one of Rocks greatest singers.The cool thing about this DVD is that it captures Oasis in their beginnings. The band is still rough around the edges, and you are struck especially by how young Liam was and how different his voice sounded. But with that youth comes the excitement and energy of a band on its way to the top. Throughout their career, Oasis have achieved greatness with incredible songs and blistering performances. They have also achieved incredible lows with their in-fighting and sporadic anti-fan sentiments. One thing this DVD makes certain, however, is that Oasis never fake it and they are always willing to deliver the un-expected."
Rock N Roll Star!
