4.0 out of 5 stars An understated return saved by the brass section, 29 Aug. 2011
This review is from: The Death Of You And Me (Audio CD)
This is an understated return from Noel Gallagher...it is a mature comeback song...the usual Noel Gallagher touches are there...instantly familiar (sometimes this is a good thing for a Noel Gallagher song/sometimes bad)...lyrics we've heard all before about the weather...he seems obsessed with shining up his soul...we have a catchy chorus...the song is almost mediocre and then....BAM! That brass section comes in...you're then wondering if this is even Noel Gallagher...a fantastic mid section which tells me that Noel Gallagher still has the Midas Touch...looking forward to the album.

As for the B-Side...I keep hearing from people that it is better than the A-Side...no it isn't...it is a lazy "Rain" wannabe with some dreadful Noel Gallagher singing...he sounds like an injured dog and the production is terrible...Noel's vocals have improved a lot over the years but every now and then he drops in a poor vocal like this...for every three 'Importance of Being Idle's' you get a 'High Horse Lady'...or this rubbish...this is my only concern for his album...Noel singing over the course of 10 songs could grate if he has a couple of 'High Horse Lady' moments...

4/5 for the single...2/5 for the B-Side...should be a grand total of 3/5 but since i was more interesting in reviewing the Death of You and Me we'll leave it at 4/5.
