WFTHG's take on Oasis @ Target Center Wed. night: "The band, while sounding ok(and a lot better than I remember other bands in previous Target Center shows) seemed like they were going through the motions." MspMag's take on Oasis @ Target Center Wed. night: "Liam's voice was in great shape last night and all the old songs sounded fantastic." Strib's take on Oasis @ Target Center Wed. night: "Liam essentially just shouted and muttered his way through lesser tunes... The guy's a consummate rock singer on record, but he certainly wasn't on stage Wednesday."
