Why do we like this?

The humor of the Gallagher grump-athon, which seems to revolve exclusively around telling each other, everyone and everything to fuck off, is starting to get more than a little tiresome and the brothers are starting to run out of ways to stay relevant, if they haven't already. Despite debuting at Number One on the UK charts, Liam's musical effort earlier this year was sort of Oasis-lite in a time when no one really wants that; but fortunately for Noel, him and his High Flying Birds have actually created quite an interesting and progressive album with new release Who Built the Moon?.

"It's a Beautiful World" is a perfect example of this, as it builds on the Brit-pop origins of the distinct Gallagher sound to create an expansive, psychedelia-infused pop anthem. The momentum doesn't let up for a moment as gritty guitar lines build over a steady, driving beat, with Gallagher's voice agitating along before soaring into a hell of an infectious chorus. It's a rollicking good time, but the kicker comes with an unexpected, mega-phone amplified French spoken-word break that explodes into a heavenly sound. 

A return to form for one of rock's most famous characters, it's catchy and radio-friendly, but also demonstrates thought and progress in the music being made. Who Built the Moon? is out now through Sour Mash Records.
