Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds : Who Built The Moon?


Monstrous sounds of bass and drums combined with vocal chants take centre stage in an introduction that’s filled with suspense. Unlike the first two releases from Noel Gallagher’s post-Oasis project, on album number three he treads new ground and opts for experimental sounds that hit the mark.

Holy Mountain’draws a glam rock-esque plateau of sound that conjures an image of T-Rex, David Bowie and Ricky Martin collaborating in the studio. Add to the mix a cheeky bit of tin whistle and you’ve got yourself a rollicking four-minute pop track. Teaming up with David Holmes – who worked on the soundtrack to Ocean’s Eleven and Logan Lucky – this album hits the mark both instrumentally and vocally.

From the funky electric piano in ‘Keep on Reaching’to the country-esque ‘If Love Is The Law’, Liam and Noel have both produced two of the best releases of the year and they contrast each other perfectly. If you want an album to get you hyped for the weekend ahead then check out Who Built The Moon, pure classic Noel.
