Wow Noel is so under-rated it's not funny. I mean come on the guy is a musical genius but how typical for people to admit to those who have talent as opposed to those who are talentless trying to win over the world on false glory. Give me a break! Noel is just an amazing song writer (period) & I already own most of the oasis albums & I think Noel gets over looked more often than not.
With his sort of genius who needs Liam in the band, just hand over all singing / song-writing not to mention crafty guitar work to Noel & the band will have an album far better than "What's The Story" which is what they've been trying to top but that one Liam (you pulled that off somehow). As for Liam, aren't you always putting Oasis fans to discontent as every time the new album comes out so does your running joke that you are over as a band, man us fans dig people with talent & would only crave to have it yet I think if you went into music than please don't abandon your fans.
In the meantime I am going to acquire as many oasis cd singles that have Noel's B or A sides & wack them onto one disc & have my very own merry Noel Gallagher album because his stuff is in depth on personal levels where one can relate, enjoy & listen to repeatedly without any pessimistic associated stigma.
Cheers Noel & keep up the good work.

It reminds me of "supersonic" quite a bit. To the people who have been slaggin it off for its simplicity, they don't have a point. What makes THT special is the way the riff flows along with the acoustic and electric guitar. I like the way the sound is crisp n clear and not overproduced(or distorted) like some oasis rockers. It goes back to the basics, I guess that is why it reminds me of "supersonic". Now with the b-sides; "Just Gettin Older" is Noel showing that he is turning into a more mature and classy writer. "Idler's Dream" is in my list of best oasis songs. It is just class, one of the most beautiful songs I've heard in my whole life. I was speechless the first time I heard it. "Idler's Dream" is worth buying the single. Their latest album has a lot of better songs than THT, GREAT first single though.

The aside is nice, but the two bsides are two beautiful numbers. Just Getter Older is a reflective number and Idler's Dream is one of the groups most romantic and most lovely songs. Buy! Buy! Buy even if you are not a fan! This single is brilliant and so is "Stop Crying Your Heart Out". Listen Up before you automatically rule it out!

Being a longtime follower of their music, I was ready to be disappointed by this new single as I had been by their last album, Standing on the Shoulders of Giants. However, the moment the lead guitar kicked in and Liam began his soaring vocals, I knew this was a great song. It's a feel good song you can rock while driving or just at home. As for the B-Sides, Oasis continually puts out great B-Sides and though I had heard Getting Older before, it's still a great song. Idler's Dream is a beautiful ballad with Noel on vocals again (like on JGO). Great way to return to form!

NO Oasis record or single is remotely bad enough to worry about reviewing...There's nothing to review...it's all tops! All true followers of Oasis know what I mean...If you don't like 'em, you've got a major problem....MADFERIT!!

i don't know what everybody means when they say return to form. every reviewer writes "a drastic departure from the bloated be here now..." or "a return to pace from the transitional standing on the shoulder of giants..." everyone thinks they write for rolling stone! it's as if i'm reading the same review over and over again.
i like the hindu times. i think it's a strong single. and from the sound of the new album (i know you've listened to it too), things are looking up for them. but i don't think it's much better than sotsog or be here now. they're both fine albums with songs that really put to shame some of the tracks on here.

Another in a line of Oasis singles that gets better with every listen, the Hindu Times appears to bode well for the album. Let's hope this album is finished, unlike SOTSOG. Great B-sides, as always, particularly the surprisingly subtle "Idler's Dream". Good job, boys...

There's a sense of boastful fun on "Hindu Times," Oasis' retracted 1st single from their forthcoming album, "Heathen Chemistry." "God gave me soul in your rock and roll, babe," sings Liam Gallagher in a fighting voice. His brother, Noel, provides the intermittent squeal of a guitar in front of the standard wall of thick rhythm guitar, and you know Oasis are back.
Unfortunately, "Just Getting Older" doesn't keep the freewheeling vibe going. The song is a tad maudlin for my taste, similar to the dullness heard on "Where Did It All Go Wrong?" from the last record. Noel sings (whines) in front of an angelic chorus in the background, which sounds a bit contrived to me. In my opinion, the guy should come to terms with his age by doing what he does best: rocking out, like on "The Hindu Times," rather than singing forlorn ballads about himself.
Finally, with its pleasant piano backdrop, "Idler's Dream" is a better song, but still too slow for Oasis, who don't always thrive on sentimentality. However, if the song "The Hindu Times" is any indication, the upcoming "Heathen Chemistry" could be a classic Oasis record, reminiscent of the days of "Be Here Now." Let's hope.
