Noel Gallagher isn’t a fan of double albums. When Rolling Stone asked the ex- Oasis guitarist if he’d had the chance to check out Arcade Fire ’s double-disc Reflektor , he replied he hadn’t, adding double albums don’t have a place in today’s music scene.

“Anybody that comes back with a double album, to me, needs to pry themselves out of their own a**hole,” he says. “This is not the Seventies, okay? How arrogant are these people to think that you've got an hour and a half to listen to a f**king record?”

The guitarist went on to praise David Bowie ’s recently released comeback album, The Next Day , and give a backhanded compliment to Arctic Monkey ’s AM record. “Half of the [new] Arctic Monkeys record is really good. You know, the other half is like, ‘Eh, yeah’ -- but half of it is really f**king good.”

Gallagher reveals he plans on making some new music next year, noting he spent a good portion of 2013 writing new material. “I haven't started recording yet, so I was kind of going to see the rest of the year out and then kind of spend most of next year in the studio,” he explains. “I hope to do some recording in New York, because I've never done it before.”
