The reviewer called 'Who Built the Moon?' a "dried up oasis of dross"
A TV advert for Noel Gallagherâs new album includes a one-star review that calls the recordÂ a âdried up oasis of drossâ.
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 hadÂ described Noelâs record asÂ âa dried up oasis of drossâ, writing ofÂ âWho Built the Moon?â: âThere 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.â
âItâs the stale, musty sound of a glorified pub band going through the motions. Rock is dead; this is a pantomime,â he added.
Noel later responded to the reviewÂ by joking: âThatâs me told then!!â, adding: âSee what they did there with the headline?â.
When asked about the possibility, Gallagher told Rolling Stone: âIâve already been approached by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fameâ¦ The fuckinâ fella from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame came to me and said, âDo you know in two years youâll be eligible for the Hall of Fame?â I said, âIs that right?â He said, âYes.'â
Noel added: âAnd he started going on, and I said, âLet me fucking stop you there. I know what it is. I know what it entails, and it wonât be fucking happening, OK?'â
âHe invited me down to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame itself and showed me all these exhibits of Oasis stuff. Itâs a great place and all that, but I wonât be doing it, I donât think.â
