If all the album was like the first half it would be a great album, however the tunes become too similar and show nothing new on the second half so the album is just good. My favourite tracks are, on that order, tracks 1, 3 and 4.

This album present to us something we would never think about. the good side of the sad breakup of Oasis.

On his gigs, Noel always starts with "(It's Good) To Be Free" and this contrasts with the freedom of his talent with the end of Oasis. The best songs of Noel Gallagher since the end of the 90s are on "High Flying Birds".

He wrote some classic tunes for Oasis on the 2000s as "Stop Crying Your Heart Out" of Heathen Chemistry or "The Importance of Being Idle" of "Don't Believe the Truth" but nothing compared to the songs that made of him a super-hero of the 90s.

But on "High Flying Birds" we can listen to some great songs. "If I Had A Gun", "Everybody's on The Run", "The Death Of You And Me" and "Dream On" definitely would be on his "best ever" list.

Some lost material and unreleased songs (examples, "The Dying of the Light" and "Freaky Teeth") tell us that the next album can be even better than the first.

have to say, Oasis’s breakup up is kind of like when the Eagles broke up. Each part of the band is releasing solo albums that sound exactly like the original band’s albums. Liam Gallagher and the rest of Oasis formed Beady Eye and released an album earlier this year. A pretty good one too. But Noel Gallagher topped them here. Say what you will about Noel Gallagher (and not much of it is good I’m sure) but he can write some great music. This album is very good, sounds like an Oasis album. If you’re an Oasis fan you’ll like this for sure, but even if you’re not, it’s a great album, worth checking out.

This album was a grower. On my first listen I thought it was like a collection of Oasis B-Sides. Eventually though after a few playthroughs I realised the greatness of his songwriting and melodies. Although I would much prefer his more up tempo tunes like Freaky Teeth and Mucky Fingers. Still a great album

Im actually glad Oasis broke up, getting a 100% Noel album was nice. I dont really feel there is a weak track on the album, even the bonus tracks were fairly high caliber

I can say this is the best album of Oasis since What the Story Morning Glory, on the other side, this is not Oasis. Noel Gallagher deliver us a project worth listening too, unike Liam's Bready Eye (.. sucks). You can see what Oasis was all about, and how Noel forgot for the last 5 albums of oasis, how to make a good album. He always made couple of amazing anthems, but not a good album as a whole. I'm waiting for part 2 Noel, or an Oasis reunion with the same quality.

Noel is on top form for this album and its made even better by the fact that Liam isn't singing it.

Brilliant songwriter and this is easily one of my favourite albums of 2011. Liam Gallagher should take note and try again next time. This is how you construct a great album.
