TAS Rated 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics in the October 2021 Issue of The Absolute Sound!
Back The Way We Came: Vol 1 (2011-2021) is a Best Of celebrating the first decade of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
This double album, curated and compiled entirely by Noel, includes tracks from the three Number One albums (Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Chasing Yesterday and Who Built The Moon?) and the three acclaimed EPs (Black Star Dancing, This Is The Place and Blue Moon Rising) - plus 2 previously unreleased tracks including the brand new single "We're On Our Way Now."
The album is also available on a limited edition deluxe box set featuring bonus discs including previously unreleased acoustic versions, remixes, instrumentals and an unheard demo.
The set is a testament to Gallagher's strong songwriting, and his command of diverse musical styles, from the jazzy sax solo of his Floyd-ish ballad 'Riverman' and the Kinks-influenced stomp 'The Death of You and Me' to the infectious Euro-pop anthem 'Holy Mountain' and the disco beat of 'Black Star Dancing.'
