Irresistible, relentless, catchy - Oasis on top form here,
This review is from: The Shock Of The Lightning (Audio CD)
When i first heard The Shock Of The Lightning, i was literally blown away. Oasis have always come up with the goods in terms of lead singles but with this track they have delivered something truly special, blending the raw, relentless feel of The Hindu Times with the undeniable pop sensibilities and catchiness of the Don't Believe The Truth singles we have a song that is instantly accesible.
It is testament to Noel's songwriting skills that hearing this on the radio, it already sounds like a classic. Put simply, i love this track and if the rest of the album is as good as this song it will be a true highlight of 2008.
As the b-side we get the Chemical Brothers remix of Falling Down - with a dreamy, melancholy feel - this version sensibly retains that crucial 'Oasis sound' while packing it full of dance beats and razor sharp synths. A great little extra that rounds off this CD and makes it well worth getting your hands on.

Thanks for mentioning the track listing; why can't Amazon do that? How can they expect people to buy a CD without even knowing what's on it??
