Noel - negative reviews

LONDON - Those people writing negative reviews will be banned from the dictator Noel Gallagher's gigs, as it already happened.
Just like his first album (made with Oasis discarded songs co-written with Gem Archer, from the 2001 and 2004 sessions) received 23 negative reviews from music experts (oh but Noel's fankids know much more eh - they don't even listen to what their idol says).

First of all, the lying bird Noel lies even in the title - he's not "Chasing Yesterday", as he repeated he wants no Oasis reunion "not even for starving children"

"the High Flying Birds aren’t exactly chasing yesterday; although both Flying Birds records owe a lot to Oasis [and Noel is always shitting on Liam and his band Oasis, without them Noel wouldn't even be known], they don’t so much actively mine from that catalogue as they carry on the sound Noel is deeply acquainted with at this point. Hell, had Noel and his Birds chased the past, they’d at least be trying to build momentum in a certain direction, rather than the passive continuation of an already-established style."
"Chasing Yesterday is not interested enough to truly mine from the past, seemingly incapable of moving forward with new ideas, and too stuck in old rhythms to be called music of its time. Noel Gallagher has basically made an album with the format of a random Oasis song generator. There’s not a lot of reason to dive into a set of new tunes when all they do is point you to the shadow of the classics that loom over them."

"With encouraging phrases like “fucking identical” and “sounded expensive” coming from the man responsible for writing the music, one would be forgiven for coming into the LP not expecting much of anything. And, in the end, not much is given. Moody midtempo numbers like “The Dying of the Light” and “The Right Stuff” are damn near interchangeable."

"You might even have a hook get stuck in your head for a half day or so (most likely, it’ll be the “na na nas” of In the Heat of the Moment). It’s no stretch to say that if you’ve heard Oasis’ last two studio affairs, Dig Out Your Soul and Don’t Believe the Truth (2005), you’ve heard most if not all of Chasing Yesterday."

"that a legacy managed to not end poorly is no reason to continue treading the ground it had already sunk its footprints deep into."

The Guardian gave 2 stars (out of 5)

"Chasing Yesterday is largely the same-old, same-old. Gallagher’s second solo outing finds the 47-year-old [48 soon] chronically unwilling to go off-piste, even as his good friend and idol, Paul Weller, has repeatedly released more unconventional work, and is currently working with AA, who are merely wiggy producers, rather than true margin-walkers. There are baby steps. Already unveiled, Ballad of the Mighty I boasts the sort of 90s dance-rock undercarriage that recalls Gallagher’s guest spots for the Chemical Brothers in the mid-90s."

"In You Know We Can’t Go Back, Gallagher rhymes “one-horse town” with “bring you down”, ends wistfully on the distant clack of a typewriter and an understated piano flourish, bringing on a pang of cognitive dissonance. How can this base matter and refined antimatter coexist in the same song?"

"His song remains resolutely the same."

There are some reviews who gave as vote 5 and 6 (out of 10) but mysteriously don't say why... (are they under the illuminati effect not allowing them?) They're definitely not so positive votes so you would expect them telling the faults, but it's all super-positive (wtf?)
....even the NME (NOEL Musical Express) usually licking Noel's arse, gave only 7 / out of 10... and said the album "has its flaws" but don't really say which ones...

The reviews praising Noel write things like :
"Noel Gallagher has a new band called Chasing Yesterday."
ahahahahaha they don't even know the name of the "band", can you imagine the rest.
Noel Gallagher has a new band : the SCAREDY CATS (keeping it dangerous eh)

Did you notice how he's insisting to say he's got another album "ready"... while everybody knows he's a lazy fuck. It's because many reviews name the album that he should've made with Amorphous Androgynous, he had said he would've published 2 albums immediately in 2011 and early 2012... yes. Oh he argued with other people, how rare. Must be "Liam's fault" eh...

more to add soon
