Now then, released just in time for a crack at the x-mas no.1 spot, it stands an outside chance and is being backed by the Sun as 'real music vs manufactured pop'. but I think we all know that that the fight is between the bands from 'Popstars: the rivals'. U know how the saying goes two is company, three is a crowd. Well, I think this is very much the case. It more than deseves to be xmas no.1 but inevitably it won't be....DAMN THEM TO HELL! However, this is certainly a single that should be in your collection whether you're an Oasis fan or not so go out and buy it (before Sunday if possible;-))!
Maybe Liam was expecting another 'Setting Sun', but this just isn't in the same league. I wanted this to be good, but it's just very ordinary. Maybe it would have been better if it was Noel instead of Liam...?
...I'm just not sure there's much longevity or imagination behind it- Death in Vegas have made the odd song like Dirt or Aisha that sounded great at the time- but a few years later are about as interesting as the Chemical Brothers. The nonsense lyrics sound really deep and stuff- though isn't it a bit close to that in 1994's Supersonic? The backward-loop thing is very out of date- though the most futuristic element relating to the world of Oasis (see the Jam cover in 1999 or 2000's Go Let It Out). It doesn't appear to be about anything in particular- very much the industry of cool talked about in Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous. And is there anything original about referencing Kenneth Anger? Thought not...
