Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds is the debut studio album by the English rock band Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, released in October 2011 by Sour Mash Records.

This album is tasteful, mannered craftsmanship with not unexpected nods to Noel’s Oasis roots. Craftsman that he is, Gallagher comes up with several keepers on this album

The album’s ten songs rank as the best set of material the singer-songwriter and guitarist has assembled since (What's The Story) Morning Glory? As it is with the best of composers, the emotional buttons - desperate, angry, joyful, melancholy and everything else - are right there in plain sight, but the light and dark between the hues are swimming about, too, and they're up for grabs.

Everybody’s On The Run, the opening track has a Ringo-style drum fill introduces a swirl of strings gathering around the melody, as a choir pipes up, and acoustic guitars strum.

There’s a New Orleans-style horn section parping away on The Death Of You And Me, an Ibiza disco rhythm driving AKA… What A Life!, and while there are plenty of gleefully nonsensical “razor blade / lemonade” rhymes, Soldier Boys and Jesus Freaks venture into political terrain, a cheerful Kinksy ditty linking religion and war. A couple of the songs  Stop The Clocks, (I Wanna Live In A Dream In My) Record Machine, Everybody’s On The Run and If I Had A Gun... have been percolating for a decade being ideas never finalised with Oasis.

After the epic, dreamy plod of Stop The Clocks, the album concludes with a wild squall of electric lead and sax that leaves you surprised, smiling and eager for more.

This Limited Edition LP Record is on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl, housed in a Gatefold Sleeve with Inner Sleeve and is pressed in Europe.
