This sucks. I liked DOYS. But yeah, Kaffy's right. They had a rough way of getting their point across. Sometimes I despise that, sometimes I love it. (Mostly, it kinda just pisses me off) Just make the fuckin' music without all the drama. Just because you're in a popular band, doesn't give you the right to act like a 6 year old.
I hated them, but absolutely loved their music.

The song Who Feels Love is just

If Oasis hasn't made a good album since Morning Glory, U2 hasn't made a good album since The Joshua Tree.

This is very impressive logic.

Oasis is one of my favorite bands, but I can't stand their loutish behavior. They could have been HUGE in the States but totally blew it. Granted, they had a great career without being a US favorite, but I look at Coldplay's success here and think, that could have been Oasis if they hadn't been so poorly behaved.
The older you get, the less tolerance you have for such shenanigans. I know that's why I feel this way.
Nevertheless, Oasis leaves behind a fantastic back catalogue, and I will always enjoy listening to them.

I know i'm making excuses for their chav behaviour but NOEL and LIAM are products of their childhood. All the violence and antagonism between the brothers stems from their childhood problems. Their dad used to beat the crap out of them, noel was dyslexic and got kicked out of school. They have seen violence from such a young age that its probably the norm for them. Coming from such a shit background is why Oasis mean so much to so many folks. They are normal guys who made it to the top. Noel is a genius. A normal guy. They are not arrogant, they just have a lot of self belief. Its inspiring. I love their attitude.

For me my top 3 tunes are

3. Do You Know What I Mean
2. Half the World Away

and #1

YouTube - Oasis Whatever

I thought Morning Glory was a decent album though already a tad boring due to too much of the same

as Noel and Liam obviously haven't gotten along for ages I reckon this break doesn't shock anyone, esp their fans

just because Noel isn't half the git he likes to make himself out to be that doesn't make him clever and insightful either
otherwise half this planet would be filled with utter geniuses in comparison

I never did listen to DOYS, I liked Don't Believe the Truth, liked not loved. It was a good album, but stuff like the Shock of the Lightning sounded very meh so I never got around to listening to the album.

Listening to DOYS again right now. It's slightly experimental, mostly in the elaborate production, but the songs all pretty much just sound like Oasis-by-numbers to me. They're fine and all, but the fact that this is one of their more challenging albums is a testament to just how little they changed throughout their career. SOTSOG was about the only album that resembled a detour, and that one didn't have the quality songs to justify it.

I thought of including either Talk Tonight or Rockin' Chair but just couldn't remove anything to fit them in. And contrary to popular opinion, I'm not such a huge fan of the Masterplan album. I mean I like it but not as much as several other stellar album songs. Listened to the Masterplan yesterday again to see if my opinion had changed. Nope.

The Importance Of Being Idle and To Be Where There's Life (kicking sequel to Who Feels Love?) both almost made it.
