I've been doing these reviews for the past few months and it's been a decent experience. I've gotten to listen to albums that I haven't heard or learn about artists that I don't know much about. But the review process takes a lot. I always think about how I need more time. But, I've got my mind made up now. Funny in these reviews that nobody ever mentions the weather, but you gotta roll with it and when writing these, you gotta say what you say, don't let anybody get in your way. Like I said, writing reviews is arduous and often need more time. I think by now, I should've somehow realized they take a significant chunk of my day. Sure, the word is on the street that the fire in my heart is out. Enough said, I mean it's hard trying to start a revolution from my bed, but I really shouldn't put my life in the hands of a rock and roll band, and I feel no shame. Because there are people standing at the station in need of an education. Though it's hard, I can't help but feel that these reviews are taking my soul and stealing my pride. I just need a little time to wake up, need a little time to rest my mind. You know, the people who write these reviews, you and I, we live and die, I don't exactly know why. Regardless, not many special people change, especially in the rain... but I do remember where I was when I was getting high. ... I was in college and I was listening to this album.
2/17 Phenomenal album, I’ve been looking for this sound for awhile, and they brought it with a crazy production level. Standout Tracks: Hello, Roll With It, Don’t Look Back In Anger, Hey Now!, She’s Electric, Champagne Supernova
Le générateur est dans une très grande forme en ce moment. Des efforts à ne pas relâcher au deuxième trimestre.
The upsetting thing about listening to this in 2022, is that I'm currently scooping human shit out of a plughole whilst it plays. Whilst normally I enjoy the chore, (why else would I shit there?), today it just fills me with an overwhelming sense of melancholy. It's the most mournful shit scooping I've done this year. I do look back in anger. I look back at all the shits I've done before. I mentally rank them in order of shade and size and I sigh. I long for 1995 when I spent my time shaving hairy children's back for cigarette money. Oasis were constantly playing and the world was largely more pleasant. WHERE HAVE YOU PUT MY COMB, DEIRDRE, YOU DUMB BITCH?
I somehow went this many years in my life without really listening to Oasis. Or as I like to call them, Poor-Man's Sloan. (or as I like to call Sloan, Canadian Oasis, only better). Anyway, this is fine. Not as good as Sloan or anything, but it's alright. I don't know if it's because it's been a meme now for like 20 years, but Wonderwall is a shitty song. She's Electric is a really good song. Morning Glory may as well be a cover of REM's One I Love
Aggressive, noisy, raw. To start with. Slides into mediocre lager rock which is alternately boring and annoying.
Creo que este disco es como el suadero, corriente pero delicioso. Cínico pero honesto, Noel dice lo que quiere decir como lo quiere decir y pese a todas las fricciones, los demás están de acuerdo con ello. Ya no sueñan con ser una Rock'n'Roll Star, no quieren Live Forever ni se sienten Supersonic como en el primer disco, sino que Hello, están de regreso, van a Roll with it mientras dure y vivirán en una Champagne Supernova mientras el mundo despierta con plena Morning Glory. Hablan como gente común, tocan tan bien como pueden y ahí radica su éxito, le dan voz a lo que siente la gente normal. No es el disco más cuidado pero no necesita serlo y por eso a muchos nos fue más fácil identificarnos con lo que dicen. Songs: Champagne Supernova, Don't Look Back in Anger, Hello, What's the Story (Morning Glory
I went to a wedding where the French bridal party re-wrote Wonderwall to be the story of how the bride and groom met. Seven drunk French girls used google translate to write these new English lyrics then sang it to the entire wedding. It was not a good translation. Oh and I love this album.
This is the album that made Oasis a household name. And for good reason. It's an undeniable powerhouse of a record. There's not a bad track on here. Anyway, here's "Wonderwall."
The brothers' Gallagher just got everything right on this one. The full spirit of the 90s....including the nod to Gary Glitter in 'Hello'. Whatever happened to him? It was an exciting time and this album chewed up all that youthful spirt and hope and spat it out I our faces with a curled lip and million dollar snarl. This Britpop-tinged monster reminds us of a world that no longer exists. There will be loads of people reviewing this saying they only know Wonderwall and honestly, it's the worst track on it.
memory music. absolutely dripping in nostalgia and reminiscence. particularly with the ever degrading state of the world we live in its quite nice to look back on happier times. its mad how it outsold definitely maybe by 100% in the uk, its nowhere near as good as that album. it'd be nice to see oasis play again, but we aren't gonna get it thanks to noels rancid ego. he's a smarmy cunt and his solo stuff is beyond shite.
Oh Yah! (What's The Story) Morning Glory is a fabulous album front to back. So glad to listen today!
Esto les pasa por bardear a Michael Hutchense.
ok this is a classic, not anything I need to say about it. 5/5.
Awesome - classic after classic, it plays like a greatest hits.
Straight 🔥. Only one song is just ok. Everything else slaps!!!
Oasis didn’t have to go this hard. But they did. For us. I know Wonderwall in particular gets meme’d on but a good joke always has a bit of the truth, right? I would definitely listen to this full album again.
I like this album a lot. I had heard it before obvi, but it is just a bunch of solid songs one after the other and I don't think I ever have the desire to skip any.
A straight up, meditative fucking vibe
Klassikkokamaa, kenties jopa paras levy ikinä. Yksi niitä harvoja albumeja joissa kaikki biisit toimii. Kestänyt mainiosti aikaa vaikka julkaisusta yli 25v
Great album, always loved it
Yah it slaps, starting off strong.
Hace años, durante la carrera, alguien me comentó "no puede ser que no conozcas a Oasis" y me pasó un CD con (quizá) toda su discografía hasta ese momento. El rock en inglés era un género con el que no estaba familiarizado en lo absoluto, pero me quedé con canciones como Champagne Supernova, Wonderwall y Morning Glory. Por muchos años pensé que los MP3 que me pasaron habían sido grabados con "baja calidad", especialmente con Morning Glory, hasta que tuve un internet decente y pude descargar varias versiones de las canciones, y entonces me di cuenta de que el mastering se hizo así a propósito(!!!!) Sé que es parte fundamental de la estética del disco, al punto que arrancó todo un género musical, pero en lo personal creo que en algunas canciones se les pasó la mano. Dicho esto... el disco* es genial. De hecho, me parece el mejor disco de Oasis (el segundo sería Don't Believe the Truth) con canciones épicas, vocales inconfundibles y excelentes arreglos. Las letras podrían no ser muy profundas, pero tienen algo que las hace "relatable", además de que los coros son más conocidos que Everlong ( jejeje ). Calificaría el disco con 4.5 por lo el tema de la hipersaturación del sonido, pero a quién voy a engañar... * Este review sólo considera las 12 canciones del disco original, y no todas las extra que vienen en el álbum de Spotify, pero la versión b-sides de Champagne Supernova es una CHU-LA-DA. Sería interesante que remasterizaran todo el disco con este mismo estilo; quedaría algo tipo "Let it be... naked".
Well it's time to listen to Oasis and their 2nd album (What's the Story) Morning Glory? I'm very happy to give this a listen and enjoy one of the great albums of all time. The first song Hello is one of my favorites and I love how it starts very quiet and builds into a great song with a catchy hook. I've spent hours and hours living in the world of this album. I've thought of movies I could make with some of these songs as a soundtrack. It almost makes me re-think the order of Brit Rock greats. Pulp is still #1. But maybe this album pushes Oasis ahead of Blur for the morning in my head. I own this album in digital format and on vinyl. It's become such a part of our culture and life, that it seems like I should be tired of it by now. In the past I've grown weary with Oasis and their brotherly squabbling. And their output after this album was a bit spotty until their eventual break-up. They had some great singles come about from later albums, but I believe this is the high water mark for this band. This was lovely to visit on a random Thursday morning and relive all the good feelings it brings about. Where things felt very possible in the 90s and these big hooks and choruses floated through all the moments my friends and I shared.
I've listened to this album in the past.
I'm not sure I ever listened to this full album before. Super solid!
Such an amazing album. Really makes it connect how big they were in the 90s
I already know I love this album. My favourite Oasis album by far. It reminds me of the 90s and how I didn’t understand the visceral darkness of the rock and roll lyrics when I first heard them
i imagine this was a thrilling listen when it dropped. i surely enjoyed it.
How could you not love this?
Classic british tunes
Way better than expected. I think this album is a victim of its own success. It's such good music that songs like wonderwall, champagne supernova and don't look back in anger are essentially punchlines. The deeper cuts were more enjoyable than expected! I think this a really strong 4.5 and if I was being more critical about my 5s, I wouldn't give it one...but I'll let it squeak by this time.
On my birthday I get this album!! One of my all-time favorites! I have listened this album all my life, it's been like a companion. I am no believer, but maybe this is proof that destiny exists. Masterpiece, there's not much more to say.
One of the best albums ever released
Beginning of Hello, I thought the whole album was just going to sound like Wonderwall, but then it has the weird cut and then went into a different but still good sound. As Emily said, unexpectedly good album based on the "meme status" of Wonderwall.
5/5, would listen again.
Onhan tää kova. Ei yhtään huonoa kappaletta levyllä!
Deels vanuit sentiment (grijs gedraaid!), maar ook - nu ik de plaat weer een keer integraal luister - omdat het echt allemaal geweldige nummers zijn. Enorm van genoten!😊
Wat een klasse album! Geen slecht nummer.
Lähdetään siitä, että The Verve pesee Oasiksen, mutta onhan tämä timanttinen lätty.
Levylle, millä on Wonderwall, Don't Look Back in Anger ja Champagne Supernova, ei voi oikein muuta antaa kuin 5. Mutta hyvä levy muutenkin ja en taida olla aiemmin kokonaan levyä kuunnellut.
Wow, what an album. Almost all the songs are great, and after i finished i kept on repeating songs. 5 stars indeed fav. song: she's electric
OK, I'll be generous. The 5* is for Wonderwall alone really. Was always more of a Roses man, but the song writing is good here. It veers into sweaty, noisy lad territory, but I've been there, and they are Mancs, so there's yr fiver
Yes. It is a masterpiece.
its oasis morning glory ofc its a 5 stars
Klassiker, einfach gut.
Love the group
Great album, all hits
Si buscás la definición de britpop aparece este album. 5/5
BLUR SON UNOS TERRIBLES PUTOS Y SUS MUSICOS UNOS TERRIBLES CORNUDOS NO TE ACORDÁS CUANDO OASIS LES LLENABA EL CULO DE LECHE. Perdon, éste disco es uno de mis favoritos de toda la historia. No hay un tema que no cierre, un cambio radical que no tenga sentido, nada. Pensar que Wonderwall la habian escrito pensando "la tiene que cantar Ryan Adams" y dandosela a Liam le da un sentido totalmente distinto. Lo escucho por lo menos una vez por semana. No voy a hablar del aspecto tecnico porque es de esos discos que te tocan el alma no por "Lo bien" que suenan sino por lo que te dicen.
10/10 ludomatics. Punto.
I hated oasis when I was younger, but this album is fantastic upon relisten. Very happy this challenge got me to check it out!
Really good, not quite perfect.
debo situarme en el lado del mal esta vez
Brilliant! From track 1 to track 12 Even the B-sides are good. Easily Oasis' best album. Cocaine is a hell of a drug!
A lot more rockin and bluesy than I expected. All killer.
Big stuff. Until this album I'd never found music that really grabbed me, but this sold me on guitar and rock n' roll
Album full of bangers. Not as good as the debut but only just
The last great album by Oasis. Again, one for the snobs to pretend they don't like it but you can't fault the melodies. Just a great, great record. Best Tracks: Don't Look Back In Anger, Some Might Say, Champagne Supernova
Anyway, here's Wonderwall. Joking aside, there are so many hits on this album. Don't look back in anger, hello, morning glory, champagne supernova! Very strong album and great encapsulation of the brit pop era
En mí opinión el mejor disco de Oasis y uno de los mejores de género al que pertenece esta obra. Ninguna canción relleno, melodías icónicas e inolvidables, gran disco.
What a great album, combines the positive aspects of britpop with some heavier guitars and stadium anthem like choruses
Fantastic rock album. Cohesive, unique, has a clear identity, lyrics are good too. One of the last albums you could somewhat call a rock opera.
This is coming home from college and raiding my sister’s new CDs. Good vibes. Good music, too.
Amazing album top to bottom
And old favourite
Seminal album for Oasis, almost a greatest-hits collection in itself. Great album, easy 5. I've said it on the last Oasis album and I'll say it again. I don't know how the 2 most miserable people on the planet can write such lovely songs.
You know how sometimes you listen to music you loved when you were younger and it just doesn’t sound as good? This is not one of those albums. If anything, I can better appreciate just has lush and layered this album is. It’s goddamned anthemic. Noel Gallagher’s songwriting is absolutely at its peak here. Oasis have never been the flashiest or boundary pushing band, but one thing they are is absolutely unique. No one sounds quite like them. There is not a single bad song on this album.
Oasis merda ma questi sono tutti singoli dal primo all'ultimo
Literally every single one of my favorite oasis songs are on this album. What a classic banger of an album. Even if wonderwall is overplayed it’s still good and I love champagne supernova, it’s been my alarm in the morning for years. Fav songs: literally no skips
was going to be all objective with this, but to be honest it's still a stone cold 5
One of my favorite albums of all time. I've seen Oasis live twice, thank goodness before they broke up. I know it's suggested that they're derivative of the Beatles, but I think they are much, much more influential and talented than that. They have a sound their own, a masterful attitude of rock and roll, and the ability to craft songs that play in clubs and arenas. Their work is suggestive of the Beatles, but in a commemorative way. This album never lets up, either. It is one of the perfect albums of the 90s and all time; each song is fantastic. All killer and no filler.
It took me (and the music press) a while to truly appreciate what an album this was. I've never owned it, but i've sung along to every song, danced (drunkedly) to many. For my generation, it's so important - even critical.
Man, this is an album with mostly hits, but the songs are actually great, and not just some shallow commercial music, although, I think, trough the grandness of their songs, they became commercial. Maybe, the best album by a band that transcended the underground, breaking like a fucking wrecking ball in the mainstream ears, the absolute kings of the britpop era.
In Canada, the release of this album was almost like Beatlemania 2. I don't think many folks had been paying attention to the Britpop evolution that had already started (including Oasis' release of Definitely Maybe the year before) but they definitely wanted to anoint Oasis as the new Beatles. That's a bit much but this is a damn good album. Far less brooding than the rest of rock at the time, the upbeat tempos and sound are great. What I like about early Oasis is that you can hear a full band - lots of guitar and bass layers, along with drums and the occasional piano. That was hugely influential for how rock (re)evolved. Some Might Say has a great throw back rock sound (to the 70's) while Morning Glory is an excellent piece of rock reimagined for the 90's (grating guitar work is awesome). Noel Gallagher may be an asshole but he is a good songwriter. Don't Look Back in Anger (I think it's their best song) has some deep intelligent lyrics whereas the lyrics in She's Electric are cheeky yet still smart. The different styles show just how talented he is. Wonderwall may be overplayed but it is a great track. I'll always dislike Champagne Supernova but hey I don't like Strawberry Fields either - I guess I'm not much for psychedelia. Still, I can acknowledge its great musicianship even if it is not my kind of sound.
Such a shame that they went to shit after this. Amazing album
I went into this thinking I was going to hate it. I've continued to listen to Definitely Maybe sporadically over the years but it's a long time since I've bothered with What's The Story. And maybe it is just nostalgia but I still really, really enjoyed it. So that's good.
Where to begin? I could write for days about this album but my little hand would fail me. Catapulted the best band from the 90’s into immortality. Not many bands can follow up such a phenomenal first album with an album bigger and in some ways better. But oasis aren’t like many bands they are fucking brilliant. This was bonehead in his prime! Also without oasis we would never have got to hear the beauty that was beady eye. Never forget that! Ive just champagne supernova’d all over my self.
I spent many nights laying on my best friend's floor gossiping about our transition to high school and summer camp changes while listening to this album. Once your adolescent heart has seen a boy with hockey hair play Wonderwall on an acoustic guitar by a campfire, what's left? I started listing favourites and realized it's 9/12, so it's easier to say swamp songs and cast no shadow resonate the least with me.
It's just full of hits and bangers, and a landmark album for Britpop and the 90s. Wore out this CD in my parents' 2002 Toyota Sienna. Special shoutout to She's Electric which is so damn good.
Awesome album. Lots of hits on here but generally I really like the sound they pivoted to in this album versus definitely maybe.
Fantastic! Hear it all aloud!
Loved this album in the 90's, still love it now. Nearly every track a classic. Supernova was my go to Jukebox pick, quality tune and long
A+ 10/10 absolute banger. The only negative are the two interlude type songs, but as a whole it really works together. Excluding those two interludes, any of these songs would be a top 10 hit.
Liam’s vocals are spot on. How lucky to have this uplifting anthemic music when I was 23. For me the Liam’s voice sounds of stella, the white noise guitars of speed. The songwriting is exceptional, it’s like a greatest hits album - only qualm is I think it could have been produced better, the guitars aren’t quite right. But that’s me looking back 25 years this is a ***** classic.
I can listen to this entire album anytime.
Wow … just WOW!!! I forgot how good this album is. And clearly I used to listen to it ALOT because it’s been at least a decade if not more since I’ve listened and I still remember most of the words. This album is banger after banger. Unlike other albums, I don’t have a song that I don’t like or only think is average. I like every single song. This has me rethinking my personal album rankings. I can’t believe I essentially left this album behind. It wasn’t even in my library. WTF??!!?? GREAT. FUCKING. ALBUM.
What a bumpin' album. We've all heard the jokes about 'Wonderwall' or the greatest lyric of all time on 'Champagne Supernova', "Slowly walking down the hall...faster than a cannonball" (that's sarcasm), but putting all those aside, this album is simply a banger from beginning to end. 'Hello' is a terrific opening, capturing the overall energy and engaging feel practically all these songs have. 'Hey Now', 'Some Might Say' (A highlight for me, personally), 'Morning Glory' - this album is incredibly consistent, and one of those rare few where listening to it cover to cover is an absolute must.
This is one of those albums where I haven't listened to it in probably 15 years, and yet I knew and sang along to every lyric. This was one of 3-4 albums around 7th or 8th grade that was just constantly on repeat. Great stuff.
Loved it! Knew much more than I thought
Just a great album
How did an album with this many bangers get made?!
Still writing, First day Of Ramadhan
It's like a Best Of Compilation, but it's all on one album. Britpop at it's finiest, and some absolutly great songs.
Is this album flawless? No. But yet again it's another example of my subjective bias of 90s nostalgia! Enjoyed re-listening.
A monumental release from the one of the biggest bands of the 90s and 00s, there is an undeniable quality in Noel Gallagher's songwriting and he was fortunate to find a large audience willing to listen. I hadn't heard this for a while, but it's an album that instantly brings back so many good memories from my teen years, so there is a nostalgia element here. I suppose that's one of the great things about music. Loads of great songs here: 'Wonderwall', 'Don't Look Back In Anger', 'Some Might Say' and the absolute timeless 'Champagne Supernova'. PS. Geez, just realized this album really almost 30 years old!
Champagne Supernova go hard
04/22/2022 Filled with great songs. An absolute classic.
This is one of my most cherished memories from my childhood and youth, so I won’t act like I’m not gonna give it a straight up 5, but let’s see what I have to say about it 27 years later. Let’s start whit the cons: Yes, some of the the lyrics are a bit lazy or maybe Noel was just so confident about his work that did not care to polish them. Yes, the mixing is bloated and at times ridiculously loud (but yeah it kinda works!) …And I think that’s it! I don’t think I have anything bad to say about it. The album it is just so innocent, confident and honest in its (missed yes, but what an awesome try) aim to be the greatest rock n roll record of all time that it does deserve a place among the greatest. Remember those days? We could be waiting for the videos to air on MTV for ours and just be hypnotized by the huge rockstars they were, especially Liam, we could listen to Champagne Supernova all day long… Yes Wonderwall got bigger life (and a meme as all of the bigger than life things do), but it does not make it a bad song. Damn those were the days. We could go on revising the artistry of it all, but that’s the good thing about art, the important feel is the one you got from experiencing it the first time (even if as you get more experience your tastes refine). I got to see Oasis twice, Liam once (at Glasto) and Noel like 8 times and It is always a great experience, I sure wish I was in Knebworth back in 96 (I was 9 att) or could go to Knebworth in June but it’s just not in the cards… this is another big point to make in favor of it, it is music to be played and enjoyed live. Have you ever sang Don’t Look Back In Anger along with a crowd? Have you ever done it along with Noel Gallagher? Have you ever done it along with Liam? If the answer is yes, then I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. I read like 20 years ago a review that said they hoped that with the passing of time, Cast No Shadow would emerge as the crown gem from this album as it was the greatest song Oasis would have made. I don’t think that happened but I have always agreed that it is brilliant and a statement of the true genius of Noel Gallagher. Now, I know I said above something about the lyrics being lazy (the fishes and blisters an ovens and all that), but actually this album does have some lines to live by: “some might say, we will find a brighter day”. On my tombstone it will read “someday you will find me caught beneath the landslide, in a champagne supernova in the sky” even if it means nothing really lol. I have two copies of this album on vinyl, the dreadful 2014 re-issue (which will make you suffer so don’t buy it) and the much more superior 2009 re-issue. I hope a can get my hands on the original Creation version someday. For closing, doing this list I’ve encountered many records with extended versions and sometimes listen to the b-sides as part of the album, I think if people do that with this one are going to find weird how those songs Acquiesce or Masterplan are better than most of the album and no one talks about them. Noel should’ve kept those for Be Here Now… but that’s a story for another time.
- so this algorithm gave me Blur, Suede and Oasis... which obviously makes me to compare them. And that is not good news for Suede and Blur - I must say as much as I don't like Oasis as a band (pure judgement of characters) I need to judge them by their craft and talent, which is obviously superb. - Wonderwall, for some people overrated or overplayed, for me one of the unskippable ones, even covers, samples and jazz reeditions and shitty Superstar versions are good
En aquell moment eren intocables. Després del disc debut, tan cacarejat des d'abans d'editar-se, i que va complir amb totes les expectatives, i el single 'Whatever', una altra victòria, es treuen de la màniga un disc que encara és millor que el predecessor. Que l'altre tenia un himne com 'Live Forever'? Aquí n'hi ha dos, 'Wonderwall' i 'Don't Look Back in Anger'. Que l'altre combinava les melodies beatlenianes amb un rock corrossiu a 'Cigarettes and Alcohol', 'Rock and Roll Star' o 'Supersonic'? Aquí la inspiració creativa arriba a cotes més altes amb 'Some Might Say', 'She's Electric' o 'Champagne Supernova'. El que no esperàvem ningú és que a partir d'aleshores la caiguda fos tan en picat... però sempre ens quedarà el disc per disfrutar-lo com es mereix
A classic great rock album that I have loved for years! What can I say… it deserves all the praise. Favorite songs: Wonderwall, Cast No Shadow, Don’t Look Back In Anger, She’s Electric, Morning Glory, Champagne Supernova.
Really enjoyed this, especially the strong finish with She's Electric, Morning Glory, and Champagne Supernova. Sorry I missed it in the 90s.
I really loved this one. I probably didn't give Oasis enough credit when they came out with this one. Solid.
A classic I feel glad to have listened to. What a nostalgic sound that I really enjoy.
Very recognizable oasis sound. Some good ones on there.
Oasis is the height of 90s British rock
Glad I finally listened to it all the way through. Anyway here's wonderwall
3 songs that I will definitely listen to again. Overall enjoyable.
Some good classics
While a couple of the songs on this album have become jokes because of how overplayed they were back in the day, it's still a really good album. Proving that the most dysfunctional groups put out the best music.
Great memories with this one
Previously liked songs off the album. First time listening to it as a whole. Thought it was great!
Pretty good, serene.
Top 10 albums of the 90s
And I thought that wonderwall was going to be the best song on their album, boy was I wrong. Great album, super solid all the way through.
Great easy listen with some amazing throwback songs
Some memorable songs on the album. I can hear tones of The Beatles in some of there music...wondering if this part of there appeal in Europe
A few good tracks, nice to hear again after a while.
loved this album when I was a kid. still holds up.
Better than I often remember them to be
Anyway, here's wonderwall
Great album. Most of the Oasis songs I know are from this album.
Brit-pop. 3 superhits.
The Stone Roses singing Beatles songs. I do love this album.
It's easy to forget how massive this album was. Some really iconic tracks, but some nonsense too.
Only a meme because it’s actually good. It takes a lot of skill to make hooks out of lyrics this nonsensical. More of a 3.5 but I’ll be generous
Love the hits, rest is good.
The hits are there & overall rocks hard. I kept from a 5 because I think it suffers a little bit from a lot of the stuff in the in-between sounding kinda the same.
90s grunge sound with strong influence from latter years of the Beatles. Very good
Aanstekelijke rock! Nice :D
Tämä oli ihan positiivinen ylläri! On tullut karsastettua brittipoppia, jostain tullut sellainen asennevamma aikoinaan, että Oasikset ja muut jäi kuuntelematta. Enempi rokimpaa, kuin mitä olin kuvitellut!
Ehdotonta eliittiä, omistan levyn myös; 4,5 antaisin jos voisin. Nyt nelkku, Sorry Tuiminho joka fanittaa maasta taivaaseen levyä!
Lekker meekwelen met de hitjes, en de rest is best oké
3.5 afgerond naar boven
There are a lot of jokes to make about Oasis, but this is a pretty great album that I have a lot of fond memories of.
Only listen to this a bit. Managed not to get Wonderwall stuck in my head. Score! Great album though.
Lots of people shit on Oasis, but they know how to make a bunch of anthemic singalongs
90's Brit Rock encapsulated in an album. The middle tracks leave a little to be desired, but the amount of major hits and impact this had show its status as a modern classic.
Классика, слушал не раз, но кроме хитов ничего и не помню. В войне фанатов брит-попа нет правых, как и в музыке в целом - есть только любовь к тем эмоциям, которые смогли выразить музыканты той эпохи. Пацанские Оазис не дергают нужные струны, но молодцы в любом случае.
I don't think I realized how much of a bias I have towards 90s music. I feel like it must have just made some kind of impression on me from a wee age b/c I haven't really listened to Oasis outside of the hits (which includes more than just Wonderwall on this album) but just really found the whole album enjoyable. Would listen again.
Erste Hälfte des Albums ist sehr gut. Die zweite habe ich nicht genau angehört.
Really like this album. Should listen to oasis more.
Loud cocaine rock - if you’re gonna be rock stars be rock stars. No songs about romance or social issues or reflectiveness or politics. Just cobble some nonsense together, turn it up to eleven, have a ball and look the part whilst doing it. And it works. There’s only a couple of weak tracks on this album and Wonderwall will forever be the song that everyone in the university bar sang along to, whatever their usual taste in music. A moment. Well done, Oasis.
Some songs are classics and certainly hold up. Some songs sound silly to me and I guess there is a place for that but it goes against their persona IMO
Very familiar album. Wonderwall still feels overplayed though I haven’t heard it in years. All the tracks are solid. Very good album
I haven't listened to this album front to back in about 20 years. I've forgotten how good it is. Knowing how the Gallagher brothers have fared since their rise to fame has tinted how freaking talented they are. 4/5.
Very good album. I love Don’t Look Back in Anger.
I loved Oasis when I was in my teens and early 20s. This was never my favourite album of theirs though, and my general perception is that their music hasn't aged well, so I was interested to revisit this, with fairly low expectations. Listening afresh this album holds up a lot better than I was expecting. Noel certainly knows how to find (or borrow) a catchy melody and Liam's voice was amazing in this era. It could do without Hey Now or the two short unnamed (Swamp Song) tracks, but overall I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would in 2021. If anything it has gone up in my estimation since I last listened to it a decade+ ago. I suspect that may not be the case with some other Oasis albums, but this does stand the test of time and remains a genuine classic.
Oasis is a bit of a guilty pleasure to me. In terms of overall quality, they really can't hold a candle to other iconic Britpop outfits such as Radiohead and Blur. Despite that, I can't help but love tracks such as Wonderwall, Don't Look Back in Anger, Hey Now!, Some Might Say, She's Electric, Morning Glory and Champagne Supernova. They are incredibly catchy, the lyrics are meaningless but fun, and there is a nice balance between typical Britpop mid-tempo tunes, psychedelic elements and sweet ballads. Liam's voice can get a bit on my nerves sometimes, thus Oasis is best served a couple of tracks at a time. A 4/5 for what I believe is their best record, is thus a fitting score.
It has its ups and downs but overall it is a great album.
This album is the result of the height of the Britpop war. Before these tracks, Britpop albums held closely tied to their roots in alt rock, baroque rock, and punk, but starting in this album (and its contemporaries), Britpop began to take on an identity of its own. This album really put the "pop" in Britpop. Tracks are loud and orchestral hitting us with high notes and clear yet introspective lyrics. Nearly the whole album is full of hits (or should be). British Invasion influences are clear in many of the songs like the Beatlesesque "Don't Look Back in Anger" or the baroque "Some Might Say." It's hard for me to criticize songs like "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova" due to them being two of the most overplayed "modern" rock songs, but after listening to the album as a whole, I appreciate them much more. The album is consistent, and it initially shocked me how neither were lead singles, but it makes sense how much they fit in (personally almost all the songs felt like ballads). The weaknesses I felt was that this felt too oriented toward the pop audience, relying too much on loudness and instrument overload, and the lyrics aren't perfect either (catchy but for the most part not very interesting). This is a seminal British album that rocks from start to finish.
One of my favourite albums of the 90s. Some great tracks starting with "Hello" "Wonderwall" is a classic but probably one of the weaker songs on the album. "Don't look back in Anger" "Cast No shadow" and "Champagne supernova" are all amazing tracks with a few weaker ones throughout. The in between short instrumental tracks go but don't go with the ones they're coming from/leading into. 4 to a 4.5 as far as albums go .
La motivation à rédiger des reviews a totalement disparue, je suis du coup forcé de chercher à me réorienter dans un secteur d'activité me convenant plus.
Tunesome, classic. The loudness wars got to this one a little bit. Never listened to the non-singles, but almost every track could have been a single. That’s a rare thing!
anyway here is wonderwall Oasis op hun best?
Ja classic he, een tijdloze. Wel niet allemaal even sterk
Mmmmm, like a warm blanket of good ol' alternative bliss.
Champagne Supernova, Don't Look Back In Anger, She's Electric, are all great.
As much as I haven't enjoyed a lot of the Britpop that shows up on this list, this album seems like a reasonable choice. There were lots of hits off this album, and the rest of the songs were all solid. It doesn't sound that dated either, which is always nice with albums from this era 4/5
i like the cover art
Love it. More polished than the first album Oasis released. Really well produced. There are some great hits on this.
Pretty legendary album
More of a 3.5 than a 4.
This album specifically reminds me of the time in 1995 when my brother and I were planning a day trip to Auckland but he locked the keys in the car at the Five Cross Roads petrol station. But once the keys were liberated, we took off to Auckland, the Oasis CD blasting from the stereo. Morning Glory is a very full-on album. Every track is dialled up to 11, all rock 'n' roll excess. But if you're going to go there, you should go all the way - and that's what they did. It still holds up, but it's not the sort of album I'd ever relax with now. I'm older and I don't have the mental stamina for such vast expressions of rockstravagance. But from time to time, it is as enjoyable and comforting as a cup of tea.
Un album qui a créé un genre ou du moins popularisé. Un band très gros avec un album aussi gros contenant les classiques chansons de oasis que tout le monde connaît. J'ai aimé le son plus rock que les chansons que je connaissais sur labum . 4.25
Totally rad album. I didn’t realize how many bangers were on this. Absolutely deserves to be on this list.
Continuing with the 90s, this album was more tolerable to listen to than when it was on repeat.
Classic, classic album. One of my favorite of the Brit pop era. Liam’s voice gets a little grating at times and songs tend to go a bit long on the outros, but great collection of singles carries this album. Pick of the album is “Don’t Look Back in Anger,” nothing wrong with ripping off your influences when it works this well.
Roll with it is a great track. Very 90s nostalgic feel and very beatles-esque. Dont look back in Anger is also a banger. Wonderwall isn't the best track on this album!!
Known this album for a long time. It’s a great one
Some big hits on here, some of the filler songs did nothing though
Obviously the mainstream hits: Wonderwall, Don't Look Back in Anger, Champagne Supernova Really liked She's Electric, Morning Glory, Some Might Say as well 1st album on 1001, have not listened to the whole of this album before With 3 as an 'average' album, 4/5, not a fan of some of the songs, score is pulled up by aforementioned mainstream hits which taking nothing away from them, are really good
1995. Wonderwall, Don't Look Back In Anger, Morning Glory
Cool classic rock bangers, nearly all good songs. 7/10
Good album. not much to say
Definitive sound, sometimes a bit repetitive in the first half of the album with similar vocal delivery. The second half picks up considerably and ends well. Keeps your attention throughout and is a perfect length. Some might say favourite
An album with more singles than it knows what to do with. Taken by themselves, these songs are well written and have a fully formed sonic vision. Too much personal exposure blunts their impact on me now but something needs to be said for their ability to command attention. Its not a 5 star album for me because all of their low tempo acoustic stuff all sounds the exact same!
Has all of the Oasis songs I know. What is on their other albums?
Not bad, not amazing
Pleasantly surprised. Had only ever heard the overplayed singles.
Super good album. Unique sound with many hits on album. Seems ahead of it’s time.
Obviously a classic. Definitely some great all time songs, but let’s take a star away for all the familial egotism.
Gut zum im Hintergrund laufen lassen, 2-3 allgemein bekannte Lieder, Rest auch ganz gut.
Hard to rate this one and separate it from my childhood. Not as good as Definitely Maybe which I gave a 4, but should really have been a 5.
I think I mentioned this before, we watched a Britpop documentary a while back, it was quite interesting to hear more about Oasis. I only really knew this album. Still, the Beatles influence is overwhelming. It’s too bad the Gallagher brothers hate each other so. I would have liked to have heard their sound evolve. I think what they had was something that cannot be easily duplicated, and between brothers like that? Impossible. But Oasis sure gave it a try. I like this album a good deal, but I never get a chance to listen to the whole thing. It feels very slick, but we’ll-produced (that’s the 90s for you.) Really recommended.
Oasis at the pinnacle of their creative success. It plays like a greatest hits and it's good. It's enjoyable music. Not my favourite, but damned if I won't sing along to Wonderwall every single time it comes on. Have to.
I don't understand the Brit Pop Wars. Or at least, I don't understand the whole Blur vs. Oasis fight, almost like it's supposed to be a Beatles vs. The Stones or Nirvana vs. Pearl Jam sort of battle. To my ears, this is more like generic vs. brand name, with Blur being generic throwing stones and insisting they're the same, if not better, than the "brand name" Oasis. It's the nail vs. the hammer. There's no comparison. Oasis is better, there isn't even an argument. Wonderwall is an all-timer (yes, Wonderwall itself is a stone cold 5). There are a shitload of bangers here. Some were so over played in 1995 and 1996 to the point of annoyance, so I tended to avoid the Gallagher Brothers in their heyday. My bad. Not every track has the, ahem, wonder of Wonderwall, but this one is aging nicely overall.
The best of this album IMO: - Hello - Roll With It - The Swamp Song - Excerpt 1 - She's Electric - Morning Glory Great tunes. Gotta love British rock and Britpop. Oasis truly has a unique sound, they're recognizable. (But I don't like Wonderwall lol. Mostly because of the hook though.) I still prefer Blur. ;-) 3.5/5
Es wena esta wea, antes de que oasis se pusiera zzzzzz
a few repetitive sounds but overall one of my fav albums
It is a classic.
Don't Look Back in Anger > Wonderwall. That's my hot take for today.
great britpop album
Iconic cover, iconic bangers. Wonder wall to wonder wall hits here. Probably their finest work
First of all, the beginning of the song Morning Glory sounds like The One I Love by REM. How did I never notice that before? Secondly, how did his voice not annoy me in the 90s? Don't get me wrong, I still like some of these songs. Hello is underrated and is an excellent start to an album. Roll With It sounds like they want to be the Beatles while Don't Look Back in Anger actually sounds like it could be the Beatles. And of course there is the aforementioned influence of REM. It was a nice walk down memory lane, even if it's one I am not likely to repeat any time soon.
The biggest problem with "(What's the Story) Morning Glory" is that I filled my quota for "Wonderwall" years ago. Every subsequent time I listen to that song now overflows the container that I reserve for music that tries to deftly navigate the demilitarized zone between the Fab Four and Brit Shit. Speaking of the Fab Four, "Don't Look Back in Anger" is both the most Beatles-esque and best song on the album, and boy did the world want Oasis to be the second coming of the lads from Liverpool. Which is a totally unfair and unreachable expectation to place on any band, let alone a band that featured two brothers that hated each other too much to get anywhere near the prolific success of the Beatles early years. That said, you don't have to be the Beatles to make a good record. And this is pretty good. Except for "Wonderwall."
I said maaaybaaaaay!
Lots of great songs in here. 4.5
I didn't necessarily like all of the tracks on this one, but I did enjoy it overall. Don't Look Back In Anger is my favourite, it never fails to make me emotional.
One of the best albums of the decade. Packed with great songs, this album is a pleasure from start to finish. Standouts: Champagne Supernova, Wonderwall, Don't Look Back in Anger, Roll with It, Morning Glory. Others: all the rest! A very strong 4/5. (Note: I don't give 5's to just a TRULY great album that has survived the test of time. )
7/10 Not as fresh as when first released. Lots of classics which still get the foot tapping but suffer from being overplayed on the air.
Epic 90’s indie. Although a bit dated, there are no weak songs here.. Wonderwall has kept its magic, but in retrospective songs like the title track, and Champagne Super perhaps even better
I have, (like everybody alive), heard Wonderwall way too many times in my life. Went in really wanting to smugly hate this album so I could be vindicated but Oasis are, unfortunately, actually quite good at making music. There's a couple of somewhat 'meh' tracks but at least half the album could have been singles. The album as a whole also feels shorter than it is which I think is a good thing - better to leave the listener wanting more than leave them wanting it over.
A lot better than I'd expected. Was every song off this a single? Felt like it!!
Imagine liking Blur more than this ;)! It's not the best Oasis album, but I'd be lying if this didn't have a big impact on me growing up!
4. not as raw as def maybe - not quite as indulgent as be here now! ha. what a fuckin time though!
So anyway, here's Wonderwall. Not sure they were ever going to be the next Beatles, but pretty good.
Great L.P. This is the one that put me on the Oasis bandwagon
At the time I really liked this album and listened to it many times, but nowadays prefer their debut album. WSMG is still an excellent album of course that is way better than any of their later albums and I would still rate it as 4 stars. It is a pity that some of their strongest songs around that time are not included, for example: Talk Tonight and Acquiesce, b-sides of Some Might Say. (It's remarkable, at the time Oasis could - if they had wanted to- have easily released a WSMG Part 2 and it would have been just as strong as WSMG.)
Oasis are a band I always shat on but I can't lie, I really enjoyed this album. Some absolute bangers.
Overall, it's a pretty good listen. Decent music, good drive, a bit poetic at times. Not bad. I still wouldn't rush out and buy it, but I most certainly didn't hate listening to it. If I could give it 3.5 stars I would. I wouldn't call it 4 stars, but can't see giving it 3. So it gets four by default.
Un classique. Définitivement le meilleur album du groupe et un gros morceau des années 90. Une chanson de cet album se retrouve impérativement dans toute playlist rock/alternative de cette décennie. Pièces préférées: Wonderwall, Don't Look Back In Anger, Morning Glory, Champagne Supernova
A classic in its own right. Contains the anthem of amateur guitar playing pricks worldwide, "Wonderwall." And despite the meme, it's still a great song. There's some other great ones on here too, especially "Champagne Supernova." I like this one a lot, and I think the vocals have a lot to do with it. Whichever of the brothers Gallagher is responsible for this, kudos. Favorite tracks: Wonderwall, Champagne Supernova, Some Might Say, Morning Glory. Album art: Very indistinct, we've had a handful of street scenes on this list already. But it's definitely recognizable for me. 4/5
Here's your classic 90's alternative album and it's a lot of fun. We have the always timeless wonderwall and champagne supernova on this one along with a few other fun ones. Not a huge fan of Oasis but glad I could finally listen to the album all the way through.
A classic. I think if it was a tighter 8-track album it could be a five.
An absolute classic so has to be 4*
Ahhh The Brothers Gallagher when they sort of got on....interesting that fraternal conflict manifested itself in the the Kinks previously too where the Davies brothers couldn't get on in a band together. Noel so wants to be Macca to Liam's Lennon in this record, unfortunately they don't quite hit the mark but there are some cracking tracks here. My Favourites "Don't Look Back In Anger" "Wonderwall" (Of Course) "Roll With It" the Kinkslike "She's Electric" and "Champagne Supernova" A Very good Britpop album. Rightfully here.
This was my first listen for this album. I kept thinking that Oasis reminded me of another band...but maybe it just reminded me of them. I liked the album, and it sounded like 90s rock. I guess I am not super into the sound though, because it kind of got a little boring for me.
Brit-pop. 3 superhits.
4.5/5 that was good!
The songs on the first half of this album tend to blend together for me. The chords and melodies are similar, as is the general soft rock tone. The singing is good, but not distinctive, plus Liam has a propensity for going flat. Ditto for the lyrics, which ring as apathetic, but not cringeworthy or bad. I found the second half better with more lush guitar work and instrumentation in general, but still had issues with needless lyrical repetition. Oasis gets compared to the Beatles and as copying to the Beatles frequently, and their influence is certainly clear on some of the songs (most notably to me, She's Electric, both in the lyrics and in the instrumentation, Morning Glory, and Champagne Supernova). But I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing, and I do think that there are other later influences from the 70s and 80s punk era that are also present in their music, not just the Beatles. Plus, if you're going to have clear influences, I think there are worse bands to choose. Champagne Supernova is an interesting reminder that the Beatles had limitations in their time and what they could lyrically discuss with frankness, which Oasis doesn't when it comes to things like drug abuse. Standouts for me are Wonderwall (predictable, but a refreshing outlier in the first half of the album - very necessary to break up the other songs), Some Might Say, She's Electric, and Champagne Supernova. I think the second part of this album is quite tight and good (verging on great!), but unfortunately the first half is lackluster with songs that are very similar, lyrically uninteresting, and lacking in good instrumentation. The second half tackles more interesting subjects like starstruck love and the feeling of being high, has some great guitar solos and use of other instruments like the harmonica, and the singing is generally better. The album as a whole is pretty cohesive, but not varied enough. 2.75/5
Not nearly as bad as I thought it would have been. Still overstuffed and filled over the brim with unnecessary anthems and filler riff-raff. Notable highlights include Morning Glory, Don't Look Back in Anger, Some Might Say and Champagne Supernova (in spite of its length). The rest of the songs are either too bland to be interesting, too corny to be amusing or just plain overrated. 6/10
Some good stuff, but mostly I generally find them annoying.
A little kakephonic at times, or too basic. Heard the best songs too many times
Couple of iconic songs (Wonderwall & Champagne Supernova) on this good album
classic 90s rock, may be a bit stale at this point but still solid
I like the songs that I already know. The other songs are okay, but the album gets pretty repetitive sounding.
meh, listenable.. but meh
Great hits, but otherwise not impressed
Aside from the tracks that I was familiar with, the album as a whole wasn’t too bad. I had built up this huge stigma for years with Oasis, and I am not sure why.
Feels way more obvious how inspired they were by the beatles on this re-listen . Though Champagne Supernova is still a favorite of mine.
Wonderwall... Achei que as que eu nao conhecia foram melhores!
En su momento, Oasis me pudo haber caído mal, particularmente porque es una payasada la relación entre los Gallagher y su pleito con Blur. Dejando eso de lado, este disco tiene algunas rolas que me disfruto sin mayor problema. "Don't Look Back In Anger", "Morning Glory" y "Some Might Say"
Ik ken alle nummers zonder het album ooit eerder bewust te hebben opgezet. Then again, Oasis was nooit echt m'n ding.
Highest rated Brit pop album. It wasn’t half bad, compared to all the other shit. A little cheesy, but mostly because of the huge overplayed-ness of some of the songs.
Shame about the distortion in the sound profiling, I really can't get on with that
Kul sound, helt sikkert mange som er veldig glad i dette albumet, men ikke noe som interesserer meg. Noe av syngingen og repetisjonen var litt irriterende, men jeg har hørt verre. Noen av sangene boppet litt, men andre var under middelmådig. Ingenting overaskende eller ekstraordinært. Svak 3.
I never wanted to give this album a chance in the 90s because I hated the radio hits. But I listened with an open mind and it turns out I like a few of these. Overall a mediocre album in my opinion, but definitely better than I was expecting based on my previous thoughts about Oasis.
"Boring" drawn out British rock. OK for BG listening. Several Good songs.
"You ain't ever gonna burn my heart out" "Don't look back in anger / At least not today" "Some might say we will fight a brighter day" Classic album, plenty of enjoyable songs on. One to relax to in the background.
Nolstagic but I like this one a bit less than the other Oasis album. BECAUSE MAYYYYBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
#3 Gallagher in action. Britpop
Not a patch on their debut. Ok.
Doet me niet zoveel.
Gouwe ouwe! Mooi plaatje, hoewel Oasis nooit echt 1 van mijn topfavorieten was/is
Voor mij altijd een band geweest die ik keurig links liet liggen. Met dit album kwam ik nooit verder dan te gniffelen om de albumtitel. Nu blijkt het ook nog eens een liedje te zijn. Sommige nummers waren echt best lekker om eens te horen..
I'm not a big britpop fan but it's hard not to like a lot of this album, there are some really good tracks. By far the best britpop on this list so far, 3.5
It's weird - it's great fun, I know all the lyrics and notes, but is it good? Best?
I liked this when it came out, but I was a kid. Never enjoyed them since, and was expecting to despise this on revisiting. However, it's actually pretty good. Songs strike a good balance between rock energy and catchy, inoffensive pop. I don't even mind the Mancunian singing too much. And the less familiar tracks in the middle were actually quite consistent (rather than low-effort filler). 3/5 - which is roughly 3 more than I expected to give it. :)
Have never been a big fan and this album confirms it. It's all ok, but just not my dudes.
Några riktigt goa låtar men skräpigt album
Better than I thought it'd be. Wonderwall is definitely one of the weaker tracks on the album.
Above-average album. Very 90s! Couple of good songs outside the major hits
Struggling to get past my bias against this album from people singing 'what's the story' too much on my nights out. Intro is good. She's electric and champ supernova also good Didn't do much for me, not a massive fan of the production.
Having never listened to "Wonderwall" or anything else by Oasis, this was a new experience for me. It was a good album, though I was more wowed by songs like "Don't Look Back in Anger" than by "Wonderwall."
Un poco mainstream xD
- wonderwall album - "Don't Look Back in Anger" opening chords sound like "Imagine" - one of the best selling British indie pop albums - prefer the Swamp Songs
I will admit I am not excited for this one, but I will give it a shot. Update : Didn't start off strong, but there are some songs I really enjoy. The lyrics seem pretty weak but there are some fun melodies. Also, WAY too many songs, definitely could have been edited down. 2nd update : WAY TOO LONG, Couldnt finish
Uneven but with some standouts.
Less essential than the debut, also sounds very much of its time
For a band that wants to surpass The Beatles, they surely miss the mark on short, concise songs. They’re clearly heavily inspired by The Beatles buy taking the sign off melody to “With A Little Help From My Friends” and forcing it for their sign off on “She’s Electric”. This record hold most, if not all of Oasis’s hits and it’s deserved as there are good radio tunes on This record. The biggest downfall of this record and Oasis in general is carrying on a song for far too long. Nearly every song on this record should end at the 3/4 mark. I found myself digging the songs and having the natural conclusion and “fill” of the song just to look at the song duration and find that there’s still a minute to go. Oasis forces every song to be a radio hit by repeating the chorus line until you’re done with the song and it kills it’s replay value. If the songs were shorting and leaving you wanting more, I could see myself wanting to listen to the song, but left me wanting the song to be over with the repetitive “driving me to like it” repetition. “Hey Now” does a great job and being a punchy highlight, but still would be better with shaving off the last chorus repeat. Overall: there’s some good songs on this record. Catchy tunes and for sure hits, but forcing every song to end the same way with repetition doesn’t make me want to come back any time soon. 3.4/5 stars
not my favorit
I feel like there is a lot of people who really enjoy Oasis. I had never hard this album but I was fairly Familiar with a lot of the songs. And maybe I would have enjoyed them more if they weren't absolutely memed to death. So It wasn't bad, but I didn't like it very much at all.
Classic British music.
Overrated pub rock. Status Quo covering the Beatles
I used to love this album. Not so much anymore. Still good, but his voice is grating after a few songs.
it was okay I’ll give it a 6/10, pretty annoying but also pretty well made so idk, kinda conflicted but I’m leaning towards positive feelings
While I hadn't listened to this whole album before, I knew the singles off of it. It was okay, but the singles were the high point.
I prefer Blur
A few decent songs I've never heard. I don't hate 'Don't look back in anger' as much as I used to this time around.
Wonderwall, klassikere, britisk guitarrock
AlreaDY rated, would not seek out, middle of the road
Not a huge fan of Oasis. Good Album though
3.5 stars. The well known songs are all time greats but didn't get into the rest of the album too much.
Not very memorable
Bought back some memories from the 90s but other than that 3/5
Classic album. Outside of the three extremely popular songs I already knew quite well, I found the rest to be about on par with those. One or two not so great ones (looking at you, She's Electric) but not enough to ruin the album in any way. 6/10
I know this album was huge, but I could never stand Oasis and their shit attitudes and how they posed as the second coming of the Beatles, right down to the mop tops. I hated it in the 90s and it still annoys me now. Still, I gave the album several listens. The songs are all decent, but Liam's whiny voice bugs me and the album is too damn noisy (these kids with their loud rock n' roll!). Plus, too much of their music is derivative. I'll give it a 3 because it's not *bad*, it's just I can't separate the attitude from the music and the derivative nature of the music keeps me from giving it a higher score. Favorite track - Champagne Supernova. Enjoyed the guitar solo and anthemic ending.
This album came out when I was 4. Kinda grew up listening to Oasis.
Meh heard it already. It's pretty decent
This album: *gets released* Critics: In this album, Oasis departed from the alt-rock sound of "Definitely Maybe" and made songs that are more melancholic and ballad-ish. It's not as good and original as "Definitely Maybe", it sounds generic, but it's an okay album. This album: *gets commercially successful* Critics: WOAHHH THIS IS A GIGANTIC ALBUM THAT MADE OASIS SUCH A WORDLWIDE ACT! BEST BRITISH ALBUM BEST '90S ALBUM BEST ALT-ROCK ALBUM BEST BRITPOP ALBUM BEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME! A MUST-LISTEN BEFORE YOU DIE!!!
Kind of annoying to be honest. I love a good singalong to dont look back in anger or champagne supernova, but I found this soaked in Gallagher bro arrogance 🤷♂️
I feel the same way about this as I feel about most Brit-Pop (which BTW is the most over-represented genre on this list). It's good, listenable, catchy even, I like the sound, but ultimately it's not super interesting. It's a bit like bubblegum music - enjoyable but not much in the way of nutritional value. 3 stars.
Not heard the album all the way through. Familiar with the singles. Overall a solid album, maybe.
You know that bit in the movie 'Yesterday' when it turns out that Jack also wrote 'Wonderwall' and it's barely noteable? That's how I feel about Oasis - what's the big deal? They're fine, but clearly quite derivative and I'm not a huge fan of the vocal styling. In general I'm not a fan of Britpop though. That being said, I did like a few of the songs, and my top pick is 'She's Electric' which I'm not sure I'd heard before.
The album has 4 strong songs. The rest are of varying quality.
Hi- Hello I liked it more than I thought I would, but Noel Gallagher is such a smarmy weasel that it brings down the experience.
Beaucoup de bruit, à l’époque, autour de ce groupe (et par ses membres, exemples parfaits de vanité arrogante). Pourtant, la musique proposée ici n’est rien d’autre qu’un produit orienté client, teinté des guitares grasses que des artistes sincères mettaient de l’avant au même moment. Dans la tradition pop des Britanniques, on trouve vraiment mieux. Convenu et ennuyeux. Je donne trois étoiles, quand même, pour l’efficacité de deux ou trois chansons.
So in the big fight between Blur and Oasis back in the day, I was a Blur stan. Yeah, I get why folks adore Oasis more than life itself, and there’s the odd tune I can put up with, like Roll With It or She’s Electric, but overall, the vibe is a bit slow and moody for me. It deffo has a place in Britpop history, but there were bands I listened to far more at the time.
I liked it better then Definitely Maybe. Still not an Oasis fan.
Not a big fan of Oasis, but damn, there are some gems on here, particularly the title track. Wonderwall and Champagne are played out for me, but still good songs. Solid record, but short of brilliant in my opinion (clearly not the Gallagher's).
I did own this like pretty much everyone else under 25 in the 90s. Probably the first time in over 20 years listening to it. It's ok, mass produced, bit boring and bland brit pop. I could live happily ever after if I never hear Wonderwall or Champagne Supernova ever again.
Brings back memories still proffered Blur!!!!
Really liked this group and their songs
Cutting through the hype at the time of release (including my own comical hero worshipping) its not all good. Roll with it and some might say are not good singles (the b-sides are strong). Perhaps a third of the album is quite good. Overhyped and not as fun as Definitely Maybe, even if Wonderwall and Don't look back in anger are classics.
Another album largely defined in my mind by a particular era when Inas intentionally watching music videos. Singles from this just dominated (as did the “new British Invasion” narratives, coverage of the rivalry with Blur, and reports of bad behavior). I think it’s overrated, though I like a lot of it, and the screamingly loud, over-compressed mixing marked the escalation of a rotten trend.
An album I enjoyed a bit more than I thought it would. There's a certainty and naturality to the songwriting, as if they had a sure vision for the album's sound and style upon starting it. The results are surprisingly melodic, although mediocre in places.
i did not hate this as much as i expected i would
Sorry, but I'm team Blur.
Seriously just not for me
They can certainly make anthems... just not ones I get roused about. Lots of nostalgia with not a lot of sense
Didn’t like it then, don’t like it now
This is the most 90s shit I have ever heard. Did not finish.
Oasis has not been a favorite of mine. but reasonable music.
Sabemos que la fama de Oasis radica en que fueron unos aprovechados en el momento indicado, no puedo mentir y decir que no me gustan algunas de sus rolas pero como personas creo que los Gallagher son no gratos, inflados y soberbios, algo que la música y la humanidad no necesita. Les voy a dar un 2 solo por que mi acercamiento a la música (ya por gusto propio) fue entre el 92-95 y el britpop fue de mucho impacto para toda una generación en ese momento
Not an oasis fan(far from it) but this has to be their best album(and has the only song of theirs that I enjoy "morning glory"). So even after listening again to this, I'm still not a fan. I cannot stand to listen to the whiney sounds of Noel.
Couple good songs. Not my scene.
Not my bag baby
Nah, still don't like Oasis.
“(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?” by Oasis (1995) Lyricist Noel Gallagher is consumed by his own cleverness in his unsuccessful struggle to find rhymes. Yes, ‘sister’ does rhyme with ‘blister’, but what context can possibly be invented to bring these two words together with any semblance of sense? These lyrics do have potential, showing progression and creative resolution, but are frequently marred by internal incoherence and the use, overuse, misuse, and abuse of cliches. And there’s even a daft adherence to correct grammar (“I know the roads down which your life will drive” Really? Did they teach you that at Eton?). Setting aside the moronic poetry, this album provides some musical delights. Chord progressions, while not particularly inventive, show pleasant variety. Supported by a solid rhythm section, the clean (rhythm-heavy) guitar performances carry the music well. There are some jarring but aimless compositional transitions that tend to distract. Liam Gallagher’s lead vocals, while not high quality, are sufficient for the (undemanding) musical task. Brother Noel must be really impressed with that strumming acoustic intro, since he uses it on four tracks. And remember what I said about the beauty of sibling vocal blend? Forget it. But the music flows adequately for soft rock—enough to give it a listen. Once. 2/5
not my thing
Chyba pierwszy Oasisowy, grupy ktora znalem tylko z radia, bo kto nie slyszal wonderwalla, wiec mocno popularny albumik, ktory zasluguje calkowicie na miano popowego rokowania, patrzac na to jak sie sprzedal, wiec super wreszcie przeslucham wonderwallowego albumiku, okazalo sie jednak, ze dziesiec na jedenascie trakow to doslowne wonderwalle, balladowe kalwaki okraszone niemirosiernymi refrenikami, zagranymi na jedno kopyto, wiec jesli traki ktore maja byc skitami, oddzielnymi solowkami nadaja albumikowi oddechu swiezosci, to nie jest dobrze, brytyjskie wycie znowu mnie zawiodlo, swoim katowaniem jednego schematu budowany piosenki, czegos takiego mozna sluchac dawkujac singiowo, ale w formie albumikowej jest to meczacy odsluch, na plejke nie dodaje nic nowego, bo juz klasyczny wonderwall sie na niej znajduje, a jeden trak z tego jakze monotonnego albumu w zuplenosci wystarczy
Boring, a lot of yelling, reminds me of the 2000s, I don't mind it but its not my cup of tea
Eh not very good despite a couple of solid ideas
Not my vibe. Some classics though
Had it's moments. And I do like Wonderwall. But on the whole it's very "meh".
Brit-pop group loves The Beatles, but only “Revolver” era Beatles. Which ain’t bad, but they can’t even write a song as good as “Taxman.”
I could not finish this album. It was alright but not my cup of tea. Anyways heres Wonderwall.
I was pleasantly surprised listening to Oasis' first album and really, really enjoyed it. I thought I'd perhaps wasted 25 years not being an Oasis fan. This album compounded why I never get into them when this came out. It's just not that good to me.
Poor mix undermines good melodies. In hindsight, just generic guitar rock.
Ok, ikke fremragende.
some good songs. not at all a "timeless" album, and not one I would listen to frequently
not my style
I hate this album so much I want to cry. The singer is whiny, the music is generic and it just drones on forever
Weniger egal als der Vorgänger aber auch trotz vielgezeigter Perlen dann doch nur Modeschmuck.
The strings in the background of Wonderwall make it a classic track, but the rest just sounds like Liam whinging and wining on about something or other.
Imagine liking _this_ more than Blur. Couldn't be me. I did listen to this, Wonderwall remains Not Good but catchy and nothing on here is great and most of it is a bit mediocre at best.
The music is, in general, good. But it became monotonous to me. Also, I can't get past how obnoxious the Gallagher brothers are. Or Liam. I don't remember if it's one or both, but it flavours my listening.
Listening to the full album, I've come to the realization that I only like Oasis in small doses at a time. Their music can be such an ear sore and only enjoyed listening to "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova."
When the best track on the album is Untitled and lasts only 44 seconds...
again, I really only enjoyed the songs I knew.
Cuando uno es joven tiende a casarse con ciertos estilos y géneros musicales, desechando y desestimando muchas cosas simplemente porque no entran en nuestra narrativa personal más que por sus méritos artísticos o falta de ellos. Con el tiempo, por ejemplo, mi odio ciego por el britpop cambió en muchos aspectos; me di cuenta que había bandas de hecho buenas como Blur, Pulp o Suede, bandas que tuvieron algún sencillo bueno pero en general eran aburridas como The Verve o Elastica, muchas bandas mediocres... y Oasis. Debo decir, llegué con una mente abierta (de verdad dejando fuera chistes y shit talking). Esperaba encontrarme con un disco que quiza no me gustara pero un 5-6/10 pudiera obtener. No podría ser tan malo. Lo es y no lo es. Lo malo es que lo malo es mucho peor de lo que pensaba por varios lados y lo bueno no subió mucho. Lo bueno... Tiene sencillos pegajosos (al menos wonderwall y champagne superblahblah), no buenas canciones... solo pegajosas. Musicalmente podría hoy en día aceptar y no encabronarme de lo simple y mediocre de su música como hace años, sigo pensando (ahora con más razón creo) que hicieron música muy mediocre de darle al más bajo denominador posible y sin esforzarse absolutamente nada pero lo que no puedo aguantar, que ahora sí me doy cuenta, es la producción de sus canciones. El disco está mezclado con las nalgas. Tuve que buscar 4 versiones distintas, entre youtube, spotify y terminar bajando un rip porque la mezcla es como el wall of sound del infierno peor hecho. Quería asegurarme que no fueran las versiones pero no, este disco suena de mierda; decía Phil Spector que creó la ídea del wall of sound para que material y canciones que no eran tan buenas sonaran mejor subiendole a todo a lo pendejo y haciendo que nomás sonara fuerte sin matices. Estos cabrones hacen eso y ni siquiera lo hacen bien, suena horrible, no se nota bajo, apenas se oye una batería ahogada y solo se oye una guitarra tocada del culo con una voz enfatizada al máximo. Hace que el St. Anger de Metallica suene a Karajan. Tenemos música mediocre y una mezcla atroz y ahora el problema es que empezamos a sumar letras estúpidas y sosas, que reflejan exactamente la ídea del movimiento britpop que lo hace tan indeseable en muchos aspectos; ese alabar al capitalismo, al sistema, a la fama... fue un movimiento que parecía empecinado en vender a la juventud "ustedes sigan el sistema y lograrán FAMAAAA y MUJEREEEES." A todo este ponche de maravilla podemos sumarle lo detestable de la personalidad de los autores principales; no debería de influir mucho pero sí lo hace, Oasis fue un gigante y lo único que realmente exportó pareciera que fue la idea de que ser un pinche naco hooligan es deseable (denme 1000 punks enfadosos antes que un pinche Gallagher). Si Dave Grohl y su personalidad me hace pensar un poco mejor de los Foo también se da lo opuesto en este caso; a material mediocre, mal mezclado y vacío le sumamos representantes de mierda. En verdad creí que iba a encontrar factores nuevos y cosas que me iban a gustar del disco, creo que mi opinión de esta banda (al menos al momento, porque seguro falta otro disco de ellos) cambia pero no mejora. Fue un álbum que sonaba horrible de una banda muy común que no merecía la plataforma, la difusión o la promoción que disfrutaban a expensas de otros actos muy superiores. Hay peores formas de pasar el poco tiempo que tenemos en esta vida que escuchando Oasis, pero no puedo pensar en tantas.
Oinspirerade treackordslåtar med infantila nödrimstexter.
I like Alan McGee's theory that Noel Gallagher came down from Manchester with an Adidas bag full of songs, and never wrote anything of note once he left his home town. Having said that, I find Oasis dull and dreary, with weird, clunky lyrics - "take that look from off your face". But that's ok, like Liberace they will be crying all the way to the bank.
I have NOT been looking forward to this. Hopefully this garbage doesn't jack up my youtube algorithm too much.
No. No. Thrice no.
"Morning Glory" seems to be the classical rock song. I liked the guitar parts in this song, but not the vocal at all. On the other hand "Champagne Supernova" took me away for sure/ I liked this peace. Not "Pink Floyd" but not bad
for as much crap as oasis deserves and how unlistenable wonderwall has become, this is a nearly flawless record
