During 2000, a tumultuous year for British supergroup Oasis, "Sunday Morning Call" was the final single released off Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, the band's fourth album. Noel Gallagher, the group's chief songwriter, had left Oasis in the midst of a world tour, leaving the band's future up in the air yet again, and this single only fueled rumors that the end was near. In what can be considered a solo project for Gallagher, the three songs here are all written and sung by the band's elder statesman. "Sunday Morning Call" is classic pop balladry that had become his strong suit. "Carry Us All" is also mid-tempo, but carries a message of self-reliance and boasts the attitude of a survivor. The single's closing track, "Full On," is a raucous number that is big, boisterous, and bombastic.
