Thats the thing, I think Lightsleeper is about what I would have expected from Neil or Liam. If you look at Pajama club, Dizzy heights and to some extent out of silence, it sits neatly within those records. This is something that they have worked on over a period of about 3 years and has been nurtured carefully.
I genuinely amazed that anyone could think this is the worst thing he's ever done - thats quite a strong comment, don't you think? I mean no spark, songs that go nowhere.... maybe you need to turn the volume up a bit :-)
