Noel Gallagher returns with more of the same, if you like him you'll love it, that's how it goes...

Look, when you sit in a chair you just want it to be a fucking chair, right? You don’t want it to be made of trifle, or shaped like Argentina, or liable to turn into a portal to a Hieronymus Bosch inspired circle of devil buggering damnation.  You just want a damn chair. So this is a song by Noel Gallagher, and you know exactly what it sounds like, and you know that the lyrics, in an unkind light could be described as crap sixth form poetry, and in a kind light could be called powerful in their simplicity, and you know how the guitar goes, and how the chorus goes, and even how his vocal is going to go a little bit ‘sung-down-the-phone-just-like-John-Lennon-did’ on the bridge, but Jesus, what did you come here for? Dubstep? Get a grip.
