I cannot listen to that song in the car because I feel the need to embarrass the heck out of myself by banging my head and doing the "rock on" fingers all the way through

"Mucky Fingers" is one of the most badass songs I've ever heard

The first time I listened to the album right after I bought it, I listened to the intro of Turn up the sun I thought what is this? Coldplay? But right after that came the guitars, what a intro, what a song!!!

My 3rd favourite band!!

I'd forgotten about that! That intro is great especially when the guitars roar in. Maybe I just need to listen to the album more...

Glad to see this thread is back up!

I can't get enough of Turn Up The Sun, The Importance Of Being Idle and Guess God Thinks I'm Abel!

I think one of the reasons this album works so well is the input from the other members of the group. Obviously, Noel has been the catalyst and driving force behind the band for most of their existence, but it was quite apparent that his wealth of material was beginning to dry up on the last few records. He just wasn't able to carry an entire album on his own anymore.

But with this record, we see a further emergence of Liam, and the two songs penned by Andy Bell (Turn Up The Sun and Keep The Dream Alive) are two of my favorites. It seems like the band gelled very well during the recording of this record, and the fact that it sounds so cohesive proves it.

I wonder if DBTT is going to be to Oasis what Pop was to U2...some people love it, other people hate it.

It looks like Oasis were getting so desperate they went down the same road as Coldplay and just ripped of other peoples music.

I mean:

Velvet Undergroud - Mucky Fingers
Rolling Stones - Lyla
John Lennon - Let There Be Love
Stranglers - Part of the Queue

and despite all this 'help' they still managed to produce another excruciatingly boring album.

That is because Ride > Oasis.

The Beatles - Wild Honey
Led Zeppelin - Love and Peace Or Else
Television - the vast majority of the Boy and October albums


Should I have not gone there?

Em..so that's two U2 songs in the last 24 years. Oasis have blatently spent their entire career ripping off the Beatles and John Lennon. It seem all that they've done with this latest lame attempt is to broaden their plagiaristic horizons.

I thought I mentioned more than just 2 songs there, my bad.

So can I similarly say that U2 have spent their entire early careers ripping off Television and later career having Brian Eno create music for them, all they've done recently is broadened their own plagiaristic horizons (to include other bands and their own back catalogue)?



No, I dont really think that. There's a destinction between "being influenced by someone" and "copying someone", in my opinion I just think the "copying" arguement is unfairly used far too often (hence using the U2 example to show a weakness in that line of arguement). Truthfully, I haven't liked much of anything Oasis has done in a decade and even find myself disliking the stuff of theirs I used to enjoy. That said, I think they've certainly provided a influential and unique enough sound of their own to music (in the UK at least, they're barely even a footnote in the US anymore).

I agree. All or most music is influenced by somebody or the other. It's just easier to tell in certain cases and not so easy in others!

How horrible of a band to wear their influences on their sleeves. Mucky Fingers is the only song on that list that sounds specifically like another band's song..the others are influenced in a more general way, IMO, although Part Of The Queue definitely borrows from Golden Brown, most of the song doesn't sound cribbed to me.
