Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher slams Arcade Fire

Noel Gallagher thinks Arcade Fire are ''arrogant'' for releasing a double album.

The 'Everybody's On The Run' singer says he hasn't heard the band's new record 'Reflektor' and he doesn't have time to listen to so many tracks.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, he said: ''I haven't heard it. Anybody that comes back with a double album, to me, needs to pry themselves out of their own a**hole. This is not the Seventies, okay?

''Go and ask Billy Corgan [The Smashing Pumpkins] about a double album. Who has the fucking time, in 2013, to sit through 45 minutes of a single album?

''How arrogant are these people to think that you've got an hour and a half to listen to a f**king record?''

The former Oasis guitarist, 45, said it was a ''shame'' David Bowie chose to work with the band on the record but hailed his comeback album 'The Next Day' as a ''masterpiece''.

He's also become a fan of Kanye West after hearing 'Black Skinhead' at a party, but the musician thinks Robin Thicke is a ''one-hit wonder'' and his song 'Blurred Lines' irritates him.

Noel said: ''I don't mind it. It sounded good on the radio. Got a bit annoying after the five millionth time you've heard it. I think he's going to be a one-hit wonder, surely.

''It'll be like that guy who's done 'Gangnam Style' - we'll never hear from him again.''
