This long awaited album from (imo) the man who made Oasis, raised the bar of expectation for what this album would be like. It has all of the elements of classic Oasis albums, along with sounds similar to the later 'Don't Believe The Truth era'. What makes the album that much better is that the crisp sound of Noel's voice isn't interwoven with, frankly, the whiny drawn out voice of Liam. Making this the Oasis album I have long wished for. Every track is great to listen to and sounds different. I want to compare it to The Beatles' Sgt Pepper album, in that each track carries different feels to it...from the circusy sound of 'Death of You and Me' to the more traditionally sound you associate with Oasis. I suppose this essay is designed to basically tell you that if you love or like Oasis, and love or like the idea of no Liam on the album, then this album will be thoroughly enjoyed. Welcome back Noel, the world of people who appreciate good singer/songwriters have missed you.
