A professional, polished and entirely risk-free return from the former Oasis man
Like them or loathe them, these hoary old Oasis standards are now folk songs, ingrained in the culture, and he rather cleverly played them as such
Noel Gallagher is hardly renowned for his willingness to stand on the precipice and leap into the unknown. A songwriter happy to work well within his own limitations, he has embarked upon his solo career (don’t be fooled by the “High Flying Birds” shtick; this is a star-plus-hired-hands job) with due caution. Indeed, his new album conforms so precisely to the preconceived notion of what a solo Noel Gallagher album would sound like you half suspect the whole project may one day be outed as some high-concept prank.
Likewise, last night’s Edinburgh concert was entirely risk-free, with no hint of the hard line stance Gallagher’s pal Paul Weller took after breaking up The Jam, turning his back on his most famous songs for close to a decade to focus exclusively on new horizons.
Instead, Gallagher and his low-key, well-drilled four-piece backing band divided the set pretty much half and half between songs from his first solo record and old Oasis material. It was often hard to see the join, which depending on your point of view was either rather depressing, or else testament to the fact that he can still knock out a decent tune with admirable ease.
