Apparently it'll be a psychedelic, experimental album, which for me will mean it won't be as good as his debut.

Yeah. I'm very interested none the less. It'll be great to hear him do something new.
I'm secretly hoping it'll be critically acclaimed similar to Paul Weller's recent 4 or 5 albums but I'm not too sure it will no matter how good it will be.
None the less it's always good to have some new Noel stuff!!

Despite Liam's shenanigans, I've always preferred his rock'n'roll persona to a compromised, mature, ''adult'' Noel Gallagher who tries to be another Bono.
This album will provide some brilliant banter, regardless of the outcome.

More excited for this one than Liam's, to be honest. Noel's given us two fine albums - and from the preview, this sounds bonkers. Bring it on!

Am i the only who can hear Ricky Martin She bangs at the start of the chorus? :lol: Also Noel's voice sounds different on this track but i'm enjoying this on first listen.

Not to sure on first few listens. Very repetitive.
Hope it's the worst on the album.

It is strange.
There are parts that could have been good, but overall it still comes out as a big mess.
Sounds as an attempt to make a catchier version with "The Hindu Times" type of sound Oasis once attempted.

Holy Mountain is not what I expected! It's very 70s to my ears, you could almost imagine Status Quo or Slade releasing it :lol:

To me it sounds like a watered-down version of a Kula Shaker tribute act which says a lot

Holy Mountain is definitely a grower.

Wow, the new single is nothing I would expect tbh :o Fab tune, seriously. It's sounds like ELO meets Ricky's She Bangs :lol: Very danceable, infectious tune :D

I like Holy Mountain though will reserve judgement on what the album will be like.

It sounds as if U2 attempted to make a Kula Shaker's b-side cover.

Fort Knox is better than Holy Mountain but still not impressed

Fort Knox doesn’t seem to go anywhere for me. Feels a bit like ‘filler’
