Its playing right now.

ALL FOR ONE
ONE FOR ALL
IF WE ALL JOIN HANDS,
WE MAKE A WALL

That's the refrain. And the song's called All for One. And it sounds like a bit like basic garage rock (I WAS RIGHT). Not very impressed so far, they just sound like any band.

I liked the guitar bit at the end. The song overall is a bit ubiquitous but fun. Bad lyrics though.

3rd time listening and I'm liking it more already (is no one else posting here?) It's a bit of a Bam Thwok but cool nonetheless.

It's alright, too repetitive though.

I'd give it a 7/10, but then that's what I was expecting it to be. I don't know if its something that would grow on me tbh.

I wasn't up to speed with the Radio One play. Sounds like it's okay, but not great. Looking forward to hearing it for myself.

It's alright, but no more than that. Pleasant enough tune. On that evidence, I'd have left their legacy alone though, not sure it adds a lot.

As one wag has posted on YouTube: Ebony and ivory, live together in perfect harmony... :lol:

liked it. it was never going to be fool's gold, it's a grower and very seahorses. Looking forward hearing to the album.

It sounds like a Seahorses outtake. Since listening to it a few times in my headphones its a bit better, but a bit worse. Better because I can hear its groove better (not that its distinctive like a SR rhythm should be), but worse because now I know that I've heard it properly now and it still isn't any better.

5.5 is my average rating.

Utterly shit song. Cool riff and groove but it's so damn boring and repetitive and goes nowhere. And the lyrics? Holy shit, they're horrid, even by Ian Brown's standards.

This song would be fine as album filler, but as the big comeback single, it's a blunder. Doesn't bode well for an upcoming album if that's what's to follow... :?

Squire's a good guitarist, and and that's a sharp and catchy enough riff.

The lyrics are dire. Liam Gallagher could do better, and I commented last night that the chorus sounds like it's been written for an early Robbie Williams' album.

This bit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-3BS04B4_8#t=121s" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; I can so picture him singing that.

5/10 from me. A comeback single that has considerably less going for it than Go Out had. :)
