The reviewer called 'Who Built the Moon?' a "dried up oasis of dross"

A TV advert for Noel Gallagher‘s new album includes a one-star review that calls the record a “dried up oasis of dross”.

The former Oasis guitarist released his new High Flying Birds album ‘Who Built the Moon?’ last month (November 24), reaching number one in the UK. Read the NME review of the album here.

Fans have now spotted that a TV advert for the album features a negative critique from The Irish Times, among some more complimentary reviews.

See a screenshot below:

Reviewer Ian Maleney had described Noel’s record as “a dried up oasis of dross”, writing of ‘Who Built the Moon?’: “There are musical gestures here that would be a cause of embarrassment if you heard them played by a gang of black-clad teenagers at a Saturday afternoon battle of the bands in a rural parish hall.”

“It’s the stale, musty sound of a glorified pub band going through the motions. Rock is dead; this is a pantomime,” he added.

Noel later responded to the review by joking: “That’s me told then!!”, adding: “See what they did there with the headline?”.

Meanwhile, Noel has responded to speculation that Oasis could be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.

When asked about the possibility, Gallagher told Rolling Stone: “I’ve already been approached by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame… The fuckin’ fella from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame came to me and said, ‘Do you know in two years you’ll be eligible for the Hall of Fame?’ I said, ‘Is that right?’ He said, ‘Yes.'”

Noel added: “And he started going on, and I said, ‘Let me fucking stop you there. I know what it is. I know what it entails, and it won’t be fucking happening, OK?'”

“He invited me down to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame itself and showed me all these exhibits of Oasis stuff. It’s a great place and all that, but I won’t be doing it, I don’t think.”
