Se agradece mucho que la edición deluxe sea otro disco lleno de versiones, remixes y alguna canción que no está en el disco final.

It was not ground-breaking, but the HFB debut had some brilliant songs and was a very good introduction. 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. Speaking of those two tracks the Deluxe version of the album is worth having just for the remixes of those two. Deluxe 2CD with bonus disc including previously unreleased live sessions, instrumentals, and remixes.

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. It was quite a misleading lead single really as it carries on exactly in the same vein as the previous HFB album Who Built the Moon? 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? This 10 track album includes the singles ‘Pretty Boy’ and ‘Easy Now’ plus an Album version of the previously released demo ‘We’re Gonna Get There In The End’ as a bonus track. Noel Gallagher melding all these legendary old bands together coupled with his ability to create his own fresh song from these inspirations ensures that Pretty Boy is the most thrilling, danciest and scintillating five minutes of Council Skies.

The mournful Dead to the World - presumably reflecting his marriage breakup - is one of the standouts and is like a dreamy, ethereal relative to 1994's classic Half the World Away.

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. 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. 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. I'm Not Giving Up Tonight is the rousing beginning the album needs while Think of a Number is a good, thoughtful and epic way for the album to finish. 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.Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse.

So a melting pot of retro-styles that is on the whole successful, it’s just a shame Noel didn’t feel the urge to push himself more. This 10 track album includes the new singles ‘Pretty Boy’ and ‘Easy Now’ plus an Album version of the previously released demo ‘We’re Gonna Get There In The End’ as a bonus track.Includes an album version of the previously released demo ‘We’re Gonna Get There In The End’ as a bonus track. Added bonus is that Mind Games which is a Lennon cover is very well done and We’re Going To Get There In The End which was previously just a demo is here on the Deluxe and thankfully Noel hasn’t messed with the track too much from the demo with just a bit of brass here and there and some echo on his vocals and extra backing vocals, but otherwise it’s much the same formula if you liked that demo track. The album includes the singles 'Pretty Boy' and 'Easy Now', plus an album version of the previously released demo 'We're Gonna Get There in The End' as a bonus track.
