When Oasis split, I was saddened by the news. They were one of the best BritPop bands. Their songs and albums are among the best.
(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?, is a masterpiece, and has the fantastic “Wonderwall”, “Champagne Supernova” and my favorite,Â “Don’t Look Back In Anger”. Such iconic songs!
Then came news of Beady Eye, Liam Gallagher‘s new project, and I was excited… until I heard it. Not a fan – it just didn’t work for me. YIKES!
Older brother Noel recently released his solo project, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Their eponymous album was released a week ago, and, to my surprise and delight, it’s actually quite good.
Actually, it’s very good. It’s fantastic.
And the UK thinks so as well. The album topped the charts, and has had two singles in the top 20. Liam’s album didn’t do well, nor did the single… it just wasn’t good. It must be killing Liam given their infamous rivalry.
Here are the three singles from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds for your listening pleasure:
“The Death of You And Me”:
“AKA… What A Life”:
“If I Had A Gun…”:
