Birds Fly High… on MVM

I’ve mentioned before how I’ve listened to my share of Oasis, and have had most of their albums in one form or another. Recently, I’ve even gone so far as to add a few albums to my “play at work” stack of playlists for, well, playing while I’m at work. Maybe that’s what triggered my awareness when, one day, after firing up iTunes to do the usual “Let’s see what’s new, and if there’s actually anything worth looking into coming out” that I’ve started doing once or twice a week, I discovered a little gem: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. I clicked “buy” with only a moment’s hesitation (read: the time it took to move the cursor and click a button), and have been listening to it quite regularly ever since (mostly, you guessed it, at work).

And that’s really the only issue I have with the album – most of the listening I’ve done has been while at work. And since it’s been to a digital copy, I couldn’t really tell you particular tracks that stand out to me like I could if I were constantly looking at a CD case… but that’s also the beauty of the album. It’s not that it’s a collection of songs, really, as much as it is a flowing musical experience much like Green Day’s American Idiot or 21st Century Breakdown, or most Pink Floyd albums. Overall, an album I would highly encourage you to check out. And as a sample, here’s this week’s MVM selection…
