CD Review: Noel Gallagher “Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds”

When my Oasis expert brother-in-law called Noel Gallagher’s new album “old man music,” I was a little wary about listening to it. But I have to say, if Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds is “old man music,” then those are some pretty hip old men.

Although he’s freed himself from Oasis and the music style is reasonably different on High Flying Birds, the album is still very Noel Gallagher. His versions of Oasis songs have always been distinct and almost like a separate entity; that has been a unique aspect of the band that makes them disparate from many of their contemporaries.
