It is the most Oasis-like of the whole record, will surely please gig-goers who prefer the old material and bridges Noel Gallagher's most famous band with the High Flying Birds’ first album. Barry says: There's no arguing that while the Gallagher popularity preference has shifted a little more recently towards Liam, it was older brother Noel's post-Oasis work that was the most refined, with the High Flying Birds hitting the perfect balance of melody and thoughtful songwriting. Although slightly more experimentation would be pleasing next time, this is a truly really strong set of tunes - tracks 2-7 are especially magical - and the most complete album of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds discography.

I'm Not Giving Up Tonight is a good start while the optimistic, sprightly Open the Door, See What You Find - about finding your place in the world - warranted its place as the fifth single. His most varied and accomplished solo record to date, Noel’s fourth solo studio album is a record framed by confidence, risk-taking, surefooted creative freedom, and great emotional depth. However, on 2015's Chasing Yesterday Noel Gallagher started to mix some of the old Oasis sound with some sonic experimentation and it made the songs really shine in an excellent album.There are four instrumental version of song from the album, it’s always interesting to hear tracks without the vocals, but it’s only really works with iconic songs. Noel Gallagher is friends with Bono and Council Skies is like a superior equivalent to U2's All That You Can't Leave Behind (which was for the most part too poppy) in that it is more back to first principles but aspects of the more "far out there" sonic soundscapes remain as the instrumentation is so numerous and rich. From the evocative album title to the cover art, to the lyrics themselves, Council Skies sees Noel Gallagher reclaiming his past and paying homage to his Mancunian roots. Council Skies' is the highly anticipated fourth studio album from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

Includes a limited edition bonus 7” single featuring an album version of the previously released demo ‘We’re Gonna Get There In The End’ and an acoustic version on the single ‘Pretty Boy. The 2019-20 EPs carried on in this path and were largely brilliant too so after almost 6 years without a full album (though there were 9 tracks on those EPs and two on 2021's Best Of which sort of counts as a record) what direction has Noel Gallagher taken now?innovated further and was packed with great songs and was Noel Gallagher's finest album since the Britpop peak of (What's the Story) Morning Glory.

In the same recent media interview, it rings true really when he states that despite the artwork the title track is the only one that really refers to his earlier life in Manchester interestingly, but the greater variety of theme is welcome.Speaking of those two tracks the Deluxe version of the album is worth having just for the remixes of those two. Production is fairly typical of Noel it’s not an audiophile grade recording, but it’s ok and much better than his David Holmes produced album WBTM.

Vem em formato de livro com capa dura, várias páginas em cores impressas em papel levemente fosco da mais alta qualidade e dois discos: o disco do álbum original com as dez faixas do LP e outro disco com músicas extras, versões instrumentais, remixes e três músicas gravadas em uma Radio 2 Session. Includes an album version of the previously released demo ‘We’re Gonna Get There In The End’ as a bonus track. and the penultimate track Love is a Rich Man are unashamedly mid to fast paced traditional/dad rock but they inject this mostly ballad filled album with a couple of vital louder numbers. Overall it’s better than Who Built The Moon by a long stretch in my opinion, but I don’t know if I’ll be going back to this album over and over like I did (and still do) with his first two solo albums. Produced by Noel with long-time collaborator Paul ‘Strangeboy’ Stacey, the album also features performances from Johnny Marr on three tracks, including recent single Pretty Boy.
