Harry Styles: Harry Styles

It’s mostly overblown.

Oasis’ Noel Gallagher must be on speed-dial for bored journalists seeking an inflammatory headline.

He seems to be quoted in all manner of topics that are mostly none of his business. Harry Styles’ latest single is, however, his business – especially considering everyone is saying it sounds like Oasis.

‘Sign of the Times’, of course, sounds nothing like Oasis (more like a Robbie Williams stadium ballad). However, I wouldn’t go as far as to say it sounds like “my cat wrote it in about 10 minutes.”

The rest of the album? There are moments of the Gallaghers’ well-known middle-eights here. There are moments of promise.

But much like the deluxe version that comes with a 32-page hardcover book and a digital film, it’s mostly overblown.
