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.

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.

This single from Oasis is, without a doubt, one of their finest moments. A fantastic return to brilliant form from the band's troubled stage of bloated excess ('Be Here Now') and the, seemed like, the infinite hangover ('Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants'). 'The Hindu Times' is a very class example of what Oasis still represents; straight-laced, feedback-coated ROCK AND ROLL!
Excellent guitar riffs from Noel and Gem Archer, nicely-done rythmns by bassist Andy Bell and drummer Alan White...and of course, can't menton Oasis without Liam. The junior Gallagher bro puts down his raspy, yet unstressed and self-confident vocals with lyrics of pure optimism (I get up when I'm down/I can't swim but my soul won't drown/I do believe I've got flair/I've got speed and I walk on air). Sounding much better since...well, since '...Morning Glory.'
Of course, we can't forget about the B-sides since Oasis are known for their brillance at it. 'Just Getting Older',sung by Noel, is a fine song, kinda reminiscent of 'Sunday Morning Call' but with a bit more of electric guitars. Might take a few listens to get into it, but 'Just Getting Older' is quite good.
'Idler's Dream', also sung by Gallagher senior, is mostly done by a quirkish piano melody. But once Noel hits the chorus, you'll be amazed by it! And it ends on an oddly, but pleasing, organ sound.
So forth, 'The Hindu Times' is a very rocking, uplifting song (Can't wait to hear this one live!). And so far, it's the best rock song I've heard this year; deemed as a Oasis classic and as a triumphant comeback. More importantly, 'The Hindu Times' is an example why Oasis are still one of the best rock bands in the world. This is a well-done CD and it's been on frequent play on my CD players.

I want to start by saying that "The Hindu Times" single seems quite influenced by new british bands such as Coldplay or Starsailor because the songs consist mainly of acoustic guitars and drums, straight forward Oasis music, which is completely different from their previous work from "Standing on the Shoulder of Giants". And this is a good thing... I guess Oasis realized that this type of music (Starsailor and Coldplay) is the one making the most impact these days. The Hindu Times reminds me of "Lullaby" from Starsailor with a mix of "Yellow" from Coldplay. You get the point, right?
The B-Sides are what makes this single worthwhile. "Getting Older" and "Idler's Dream" are an acoustic song (the former) and a piano ballad song (the latter).
"Getting Older" is like a "deeper" version of "the Masterplan" but without the strings, with a line that shivered me the first time I heard it: "I bet that this is how life turns out when you are finally growned"... I heard this the day I graduated from College and it just made me cry. A really outstanding song.
"Idler's Dream" is a simpler version of "Dont Look Back in Anger" . This song consists of a piano and Noel Gallagher on vocals... as simple as that. The simplest song Oasis has done and probably the most intense and personal Gallagher has written... "I never could pray 'cos it's just no good "I hope you don't break up my heart of stone". "I don't wanna scream out loud and wake up on my own."
In short, the b-sides are excellent songs which I think should be included on the U.S. version of "Heathen Chemistry" as bonus tracks because their quality surpasses anything from "Standing on the Shoulder of Giants" album. If these songs are not included, then all here in the U.S. will probably miss the best B-Sides Oasis has ever written.
