Noel Gallagher’s “High Flying Birds”

with one comment

Ex-Oasis songwriter and 90s Britpop hero returns, with influences unchanged

review Noel Gallagher High Flying BirdsNoel Gallagher once was the songwriter who best addressed Britain’s youth with his evocative lyrics and fresh guitar skills. He’s been that during Oasis’ first two records at least. 20 years after his early fame, he is famously recording solo. His “High Flying Birds” haven’t got much surprise in them : think of a heavy dose of the Beatles’ influence with an Oasis twist, and something of a plastic pop polish not unlike Carl Barât’s thing with Dirty Pretty Things. It has its highs (‘The Death of You and Me’) and its lows (‘Stop The Clocks’) but for those in need of good, wordy pop with strumming guitars and echoing lyrics, Gallagher has crafted an appropriate shot of nostalgia.
