“Love is a magical mystery.” Ya know, like the tour. Just when it looked like Oasis were pulling off from extracting £s of flesh from the Beatles back catalogue, they’re not. The Noel-fronted, moody and swirly first cut from Dig Out Your Soul, “Falling Down,” earned some surprised and begrudging kudos (and some unsurprised and unsurprising blog lashings), but there’s little shock to “Shock The Lightning”: it sounds like Oasis.
At least it sounds like better Oasis than worse Oasis. (I get a residual for every time I type Oasis, in case you were curiOasis.) Dig Out Your Soul is out in the US on 10/7 via Warner.
