I've fallen in love with Don't Believe The Truth all over again!

I cannot resist starting this thread... really I can't! I know there is already a thread devoted to Oasis' last album but I'm experiencing some kind of re-kindled love here. This album is so full of gorgeous, almost psychedelic melodies that I want to go back and discover everything I missed between 1998 and 2004. Yeah.. after Be Here Now, I didn't get any of their albums.. only knew the popular singles. But anyway, I was listening to Truth on my way back from work today and I don't know if the beautiful sunny weather had something to do with it but I found myself thoroughly enjoying and singing along to every single song on this record. Whereas before I would listen from Turn Up The Sun thru Idle, skip to Abel and quickly to Let There Be Love. I still don't think this can top the sheer intensity of Morning Glory but I think it's one of their best albums in years! Eagerly awaiting the next one!

There is no weak track on this album, I've loved it since the first listen.

definitely their best since Morning Glory, and although there aren't any individual classics except maybe "The Importance of Being Idle" and "Let There Be Love", it's completely solid.

It's not a return to their brit-pop days, but it's most definitely a sign that there's still life in this band.

Sad to say, but I had not heard much from Oasis (Champagne Supernova, Wonderwall...) before this album. I bought it when it came out and immediately fell in love with everything about them!


DBTT is a great album... I think I'll go listen to it again.


Thanks for bringing this up again, Zoo

No problem. I'm glad!


You know, the first time I listened to Let There Be Love, I liked it but kinda had this feeling in the back of my head going 'Oh... it's basically Oasis doing All You Need Is Love!'. I don't have that feeling anymore cos I love the song so much!

That said, Guess God Thinks I'm Abel is by far the most beatlesque I've ever heard Oasis sound... and it's actually one of my favorite songs on the album for that very reason! esp. the Lennonesque Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhs in the background!

I really enjoyed this last album (and seeing them live). I think I have the first one and this, and love them both. It seems each song on this album has a tinge of something else, like one reminds me of The Kinks (Importance Of Being Idle), Squeeze (Let There Be Love), and the obvious Beatlesque sounds. If I remove Disc 2 of the U2 Best Of, I may pop the Oasis back in. It's right up front on the shelf
Oh, and I do have 1 other Oasis CD that someone recommended, but I only listened to it once. Nothing grabbed me, but I guess I should give it another shot...

ETA: Just put it on - listening to Idle

Idle is such an excellent song! One of Noel's best ever!

I don't mind as long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine
I'll be fine if you give me a minute
A man's got a limit
I can't get a life if my heart's not in it


Awesome.

I love this album. I don't see it mentioned too often, but I think "Keep The Dream Alive" is one of my favorites from it.

Keep The Dream Alive is great! It sounds kinda like the All Around The World of this album with that repetitive guitar at the end.

^Their earlier stuff is fantastic, but this album is pretty good too. I was kinda surprised though, I didn't really think much of The Importance Of Being Idle - so I assumed the rest of the album would be of the same standard, but I really like it.

It's a good album but it doesn't compare to DM or WTSMG.

Some great songs "Idle", "Keep the dream alive" but I don't like Liam's voice in this record. He's voice is nothing now compared with the BHN days, Stand by me, All around the world ...

But it's a good record, and I hope they keep releasing records with this level, at least...

I really WANT to love this album and I do like most of the individual tracks (the exceptions being 'Mucky Fingers' and the verses after the first one of 'Turn Up The Sun'- such lazy, lazy rhyming. The fact that its opening line has Liam singing "I carry a madness everywhere I go" is its redeeming feature. 'Lyla' also doesn't really grab me but I can tolerate it. Oh, and A Bell Will Ring- I don't get that one either) but as an album I just don't want to listen to it and I don't know why!

OK, I'm ruining the mood of this thread...

Love Like A Bomb (The intro- "I'm seeing a whole other world in my mind" "She's blowing my mind" )
The Importance of Being Idle (The drums!)
Meaning of Soul ( )
Guess God Thinks I'm Abel (The faux ending!)
Part of the Queue (Classic Oasis!)
Keep The Dream Alive (Lovely lyrics)
Let There Be Love (Beautiful)

Is that better? But if I like so many of the tracks WHY don't I like the album?!

Anyway, Mucky Fingers is my favourite track on DBTT, quite strange you don't like it

Best album of 2005 in my opinion......Loved it when it first came out, and love it even more now that I saw them perform it live...
