Our pick of the albums reviewed on these pages during the past seven days is Back The Way We Came, the first compilation from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Here’s your chance to revisit the review and check out the album via Spotify.
“Upon launching his solo career in 2011, Noel Gallagher found himself in a position he hadn’t occupied for nearly twenty years: facing an unknown future.”
“Oasis’ cycle was unwavering; write, record album, tour, repeat. Whatever the virtues of their material (which were frequently decried), the iconic band could always rely on sell out tours and playing to the masses.”
“Ten years on, we have a clearer picture. Liberated by numerous different factors, Noel Gallagher has simply reaffirmed his position as one of the UK’s foremost songwriters, ably demonstrated by this retrospective.”
