Upon release in the States on November 8th, 2011 through Sour Mash/Mercury Records the album received rave reviews with Entertainment Weekly noting “”If there is a prize for comeback of the year at the Grammy’s, this years’ prize would almost certainly go to the former Oasis cornerstone Noel Gallagher.”
