Not many standout tracks on Morning Glory?

No way.

No, I meant that there weren't any terrible tracks for the first time since Morning Glory.

3/4 of that album is standout, if such a thing is even possible.

The only track on Morning Glory that I don't think is standout is Hey Now. Anyway, the bonus disc was quite good.

Cast No Shadow is as pretentious as Champagne Supernova, but never manages the climax. That's the one I would consider a weak link. I've always loved Hey Now.

I used to be indifferent about Cast No Shadow. It's a serious grower, though, as it took years for me to really start liking it. Now it's one of my favourites. I used to like Hey Now as much as I liked Some Might Say, but it's descended a bit for me. Then again, Hey Now's still above most of Be Here Now->Heathen Chemistry.

umm...no, you definitely aren't alone.........I'm really not diggin' this album at all....and the first track makes zero sense to me...it sounds like rubbish, to be honest...it's all a bit perplexing

Maybe it can be saved by repeated listens...I doubt it but we'll see......

I find straightforward British rock perplexing as well.

I honestly don't think there's a weak song on Morning Glory. I really love it all the way through - it's that good.

And these last two albums have been nearly as fantastic. I pretty much like Don't Believe The Truth throughout, and as for Dig Out Your Soul, the only tune I can't get into is the last one, Soldier On. It's not bad, and it's good as a closer, but to me it never really takes off. Other than that, though, it's perfect.

I agree, there isn't a weak track to be found on Morning Glory.

Rob, better stick with U2 and EYKIW. It seems no other band is gonna please you like U2.

As for the new album, I only listened to it a couple of times and then stopped. I don't wanna wear myself out even before the actual release! Damn internet leaks!

I fucking can't get enough of ...Lightning though.

after a few more listen throughs, it has grown on me a tiny bit...I still think it's a huge disappointment and garbage compared to most of their other stuff, though. Anyway, the new kings of leon cd is my favorite album of the year by a landslide. I love every song, which is rare. I'm still an Oasis supporter, but I think that KOL has moved up the ranks ahead of Oasis in my favorite bands list.

So I listened to the album today. Broke down--the sound quality on the version I heard wasn't low. Anyway, I dug it about as much as Don't Believe The Truth. I might like it a bit more than DBTT. Time will tell. But DBTT is my 2nd favourite Oasis album.
