Go Pre-order The New Oasis Album Now! It's REALLY GOOD!

GO PRE-ORDER THE NEW OASIS ALBUM NOW! IT'S REALLY GOOD!

Had a preview listening session of the new Oasis album days ago. I'm giving it a 8/10 on two listenings for now, maybe higher on more subsequent listenings. Have a feeling this album is going to be a "grower" in the realms of Dylan's Highway 61 Revisted or U2's Achtung Baby. The album flows very well.

If you think Lyla is good, you just wait.

Give a more detailed run-down than that!

Whats the general sound of the album? is it consistent? Is Noel back on form? etc..

I'm not digging Lyla at all, it's a bit messy, especially the way it builds, a bit of a disappointment. Still curious to hear what the album is going to be like right enough.

In my humble opinion, the sound is like a cross between The Stranglers, a splash of The Kinks, and a little bit of Dylan. The album is very varied; but as a whole, its very good.

Does it sound really different to the first two Oasis albums? how does it hold up to them in terms of quality? Also, what are the songs "Turn Up The Sun" and "Keep The Dream Alive" like?


Thanks

Thanks
I do remember some about the first track on the album Turn Up The Sun. Its a very rockin song. Has the bravado of a Supersonic.

As for the case of Keep The Dream Alive, I can remember the chorus vaguely which has an uplifting sense about it. I wished I can elaborate but I just can't with the limited time of listening to it.

I have to add: If you have reservations about Lyla, it fits the album very well, just like every song on the album.

If you think I'm biased, I'm more of a U2 fan than an Oasis fan actually.

I really like Lyla, so I'm good to go


Thanks for your thoughts on the album, it seems to be getting a lot of praise from the various advance listens that I've come across, and it seems like it will be the most eclectic album from Oasis yet!

Oasis is just a band I've never "gotten". Never did anything for me...absolutely nothing. Maybe I've never given them enough of a chance. Maybe I was turned off the snotty British attitudes of the two brothers - you know, stuff like "We're better than the Beatles" - that crap. Let me tell you this...they couldn't hold a candle to the Beatles. For one The Beatles had so many different styles not just one. I don't know, I don't want to come down on something I have little knowledge of but I JUST DON'T GET IT?????

I'm not a big fan either, but I am a fan; you cannot deny their songs.

Live Forever, Supersonic, Slide Away, Cigarettes and Alcohol, Rockin Chair, The Masterplan, Half The World Away, Wonderwall, Some Might Say, Morning Glory, Champagne Supernova, Don't Go Away, Stand By Me, Gas Panic, Songbird, The Hindu Times..........I could still go on.

Ignore the Beatles' comparisons and just listen to the songs. I like the melodies in their songs; because in the end, that's what get you into music, and what keeps you coming back. Heck, I even like the early Bee Gees stuff because they're timeless songs, man. As somebody once say, "I don't discriminate against good music from anybody."

Its ridiculous to not give a band a chance because you didn't like what they said about the almight Beatles in an interview once..people need to get over the Beatles/Oasis thing.

no one here (or in this thread anyway) seems overly stuck on the beatles thing.


they've been around for several years, people have given them chances regardless of whether or not they wanted to. it's not like they're some up-and-coming band no one knows. people have formed opinions.
