I haven't heard it, but I don't think I've ever seen a song of either brother reviewed without someone saying, "Well, it does sound a lot like this song..."

Good tune, but I'm looking more forward to Stop The Clocks.

Decent tune.

Much like the Beady Eye I can't shake the feeling it will be a collection of songs that would have somehow meant more under the Oasis banner. Which is odd given most of my favourite Oasis tracks were Noel led.

It sounds like the lead single in North America is going to be "If I Had A Gun" instead of "The Death Of You And Me". Interesting.

maybe Noel is replacing Charlton Heston as the head of NRA, so that would be a great lead single to start with...
but it is a great tune, based on the soundcheck version i've heard

I cant wait for this album - It will be amazing

If I Had A Gun...

Another brilliant Noel Gallagher classic. Full of great hooks, chorus, melodies, verses, etc., etc., etc....

So far he's two for two with this and The Death of You and Me.

I like that better than The Death of You and Me on first listen.

nowhere near as dreadful as the beady eye stuff in that thread. both of those songs are surprisingly not horrible, but nothing i need to hear a second time.

Not a bad tune, just feels like he's on cruise control. How many times has he used the same chord progressions? I feel like if his lyrics were a bit less throwaway, I'd be more forgiving of the music. I dunno, I don't hate it at all, just can't imagine ever listening to it. I was really hoping Noel would pull something special out of his bag for the solo stuff

I just knew that "Sun" was going to be the rhyme for "gun." I still love you, though, Noel.

Ha! That's exactly what I was talking about. I was even thinking to myself "don't do it. don't do it".
It could've been a great spot for a biting, profound lyric, yet he just sang what first came into his head
