One can only question how a mere mortal can possess such great amounts of musical talents. The man in question is Noel Gallagher, songwriter for Oasis.
Third single off their fantastic third album "Be Here Now", "All Around The World" is truly a musical epic. The length of the single fits the epic word in every sense, as it covers 9 minutes plus of time. But the heights that AATW covers expands the meaning of epic.
From the quiet and gentle strumming of the guitar to the phenomenal heights it reaches with the crashes of guitar, drums, blinding vocals and strings, AATW is such an aural attack on the senses that one can only whimper in pure ectasy.
It's anthemic feel and all it gives leaves it's opposition dead. It's string sections leaves "Bitter Sweet Symphony" sounding like a school orchestra, it's triumphant feel gives any self help guide sounding pessimistic. It cries of hope, of joy, of fun, of OASIS!
Taken off the shine off this song is the constant Beatles comparison. This is not the case. It possess the same feel, but it takes it to another level, it is purely Oasis, not the Beatles.
Pure and simple, this song is tops. The most perfect effort that Oasis has offered so far. In fact, I'll take it to another step to say this is the song they play in heaven! I know, since I have had my breathe taken away by this song, dying, and reaching Pearly Gates...
