MUSIC REVIEW OF THE DAY: NOEL GALLAGHER'S HIGH FLYING BIRDS - WHO BUILT THE MOON?
It's much more than borrowing though. The melodies aren't stolen, and the production and rhythm are thoroughly modern. If anything it's homage, and a little help in coming up with song ideas, nothing more nefarious. Once the songs are in flight, they are big, bold and catchy, and a lot more fired up than the last few Oasis albums, and the first couple of High Flying Birds albums. New single It's A Beautiful World is too much U2 for my liking, so don't judge the album on that basis, it's much more fun than that cut, and I think that is the key, this is a good time record.
