While Liam is the star of the show, big brother left himself a star moment that rates as the album's strongest moment. "Falling Down" may be the best full-band song Noel Gallagher has ever sung. Yes, I'm talking better than "Don't Look Back in Anger," better than "Little By Little," better than "The Importance of Being Idle." It's stirring, yearning, and perfect.
The name Oasis is toxic to some. There are those who won't even consider this might be a really good album. It's their loss. I know of two colleagues, neither considered themselves fans of Oasis (one actively disliked them), who changed their tune upon hearing Dig Out Your Soul. Give it a chance. You might, too.
