Who Built The Moon? by Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds


Play on Napster
Label: Sour Mash Records
Hyperbole is the only way to approach the David Holmes-produced Who Built the Moon?, so here it goes: Noel Gallagher sounds like an artist reborn. The gifted tunesmith unleashes a big, energetic and wildly phantasmagorical record that encompasses rave-kissed psychedelia ("Fort Knox"), hard-thumping RnB spiked with Stevie Wonder-like keys and blaring brass ("Keep on Reaching") and symphonic pop sitting atop a hulking, retro-tinged wall of sound ("If Love Is the Law"). What's especially striking is the upbeat spirituality suffusing Gallagher's voice and words. Rather than the cranky Brit pop veteran who has produced no shortage of tabloid outrage, he presents the image of a singer who emphatically believes in the redeeming and healing powers of rock 'n' roll.
