I don't disagree much. For me, Silence is in the top tier of anything Neil has ever done. Right there with Together Alone and Woodface. A masterpiece. Lightsleeper is good and I enjoy it and it would be a great album for most musicians. For Neil, it's just a solid mid- level album. Good but not great. I suspect the album would be a lot better and more emotional if it has been produced in a live studio like Silence was.
Yes, I know you and me was and still are maybe bigest fans of OOS ever! I enjoy sharing that feelings with you. I can go with describing Lightsleeper as "good" album, but in Neils case is "only good", in a way One Nil or Pajama Club was good, but for me, far from his best, or what hes capable of. I dont know Liams opus that much, but from this point I think he s reach his top with Lightsleeper, and I am glad for tham, speccialy for Liam that they shared album together. But, I wish Neil was more fit, more lucid, more sparkled than he was on that album.
