Who's better, Liam or Noel?

Well, Noel is. The Gallaghers, the recently split leading lights of UK rock gods Oasis have both launched projects of their own. Singer Liam's band is called Beady Eye, and they're plainly on a bit of a Beatles pluck. For proof see their song The Roller below...

Noel, the former guitarist in Oasis and main songwriter,  calls himself Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. The track I like is a soaring masterpiece of a song called The Good Rebel. Unbelievably, it's a B-side of another song, which isn't half as good. Ultimately, though, Noel blows Liam out of the water when it comes to melodic, uplifting songmanship and musical dynamics.
