Noel Gallagher recycled songs for a miserable day

LOUGHBOROUGH (ENGLAND) & NEW YORK CITY - Noel Gallagher's album reviews. Notice the "reviewers tilt"... and "lastability"... I don't really agree about "production", should even be less, it's a clearly over-produced album, with effects for the voice, etc.
Of course Noel fans will say that 51% is positive. They know about music more than music critics and their job.
Of course you can find people around quoting statistics and bullshit, which don't consider ALL the reviews... only the ones they prefer, such as: the NME, Q magazine, etc., that is, magazines who live of the media darling Noel and could never write anything negative, or they wouldn't sell anything.

23th negative review of Noel's album. Beady Eye still only one negative.
When I heard Noel Gallagher was releasing a solo album, I was exceedingly skeptical, and although some of it could be called re-cycled Oasis, other tracks can be credited for being fresh and moderately exciting - not the best of compliments I know.
The single "What A Life" is however, a breath of fresh air, and this was much to my surprise. In this pumping tune, there are certainly elements of inspiration from indie rock band The Doves i.e., a soaring build of piano accompanied by a beat solid enough to inspire an audience. The debut single attempts to launch a new start for Noel Gallagher and his exit from Oasis. The single, alone, is successful here. It doesn’t use the remnants of Oasis, something I feared it would, though saying this, the majority of the remaining songs on the album ooze a dated Oasis style in one way or another, a feature that is a hindrance rather than a quality. The track “Soldier Boys and Jesus Freaks” is an example of a re-cycled Oasis track which brings nothing noticeably new to the music scene and then we have the track “The Wrong Beach” which is regurgitated form the latter.
It is true that Noel Gallagher will never be the a revolutionary lyricist and it almost seems as if he can’t be bothered when you consider the lines “Falling in and out of love, a broken heart is still beating” in the introductory track “Everybody’s on the Run”. This is essentially the tone of the whole album. Listening to this album is a bit like walking along the Humber Bridge on a miserable day; somehow you have no desire to be elsewhere but you don’t know why.
It’s admirable that Noel Gallagher continues to pursue with his music and is capable of crafting a decent sounding record, but, is he challenging himself? Not really. He even brushed upon the fact that he knows he is not capable of more when he said earlier this year: “If only Liam was singing the songs and Noel was writing them..... well we've been there haven’t we".
It’s true, Noel Gallagher is no Thom Yorke, or Chris Martin. To survive in the current musical climate, it is all about following a passion, making mistakes and experimenting to find a unique sound. Of course we will remember Oasis, but his solo career is in danger of being as successful as that of Richard Ashcroft. I recommend you stay in your original band boys.

Agreed. And I want also the Verve reunion. I liked very much Ashcroft's solo albums, they are among my favourites, but what he is doing now it's horrible.

"Singing through your nose in a parka with yiur hands behind your back flicking the idd "V" sign diesnt make a great front man"
(this one needs his own language dictionary...)

singing through your falsetto in gypsy clothes in an awkward position looking lost onstage and being the man who had to pay the most money for copying songs (fact) doesn't make you a great songwriter...

"Liams a fantastic frontman. Well done to Chris & Tony from The Real People who helped him become who he is"

well done to Chris&Tony from The Real People for writing Columbia, Rockin' chair, Whatever, Don't go away, etc. and helped Noel to record something.
