It's my general opinion that Morning Glory is better.

I agree with Zootles

Parklife because, even if I'm not a huge fan of Blue, I absolutely hate everything about Oasis, except Wonderwall.

The real question should include Pulp's This Is Hardcore, which beats them all.

Probably Def Maybe cause I do prefer Oasis over Blur, but both are filthy good.

And Morning Glory (the album) shits all over Definitely Maybe.

How could anyone dislike the song Parklife? It's the greatest.

"You should cut down on yer parklife mate, get some exercise!"

Both bands are legendary. Music has been worse off since the BritPop era ended, even though Blur and Oasis have remained brilliant since the collapse of the scene.

I'm still tied to the 90's.

In England id say Oasis are bigger than U2 so they don't need to be in contention for U2 like status because they are much more famous.

Having said that on a worldwide scale U2 are a bigger more famous band, Oasis have just never really made it on a worldwide stage, and im not sure why, maybe some of the people here who live in the USA can say why Oasis have never made it in america??

My vote goes to Definiteley Maybe because it IS the best Oasis album. You can't compare Oasis with Blur because blur have never really been a great band anywhere. the debate here should be Oasis Vs U2

Parklife, no question at all.

Though a Pulp album would probably beat both of them with relative ease.

They were going to blow the US wide open and then they released Be Here Now and that was the end of them. They've never really followed up on Wonderwall and Don't Look Back In Anger. For better or worse the US is all about the next big thing, and they never did anything bigger than those two songs.

Bono summed it up pretty well when he said (paraphrasing) "two crap albums in a row and you're done." Be Here Now & especially Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants fit that bill.

Noel himself said: "There was a two- or three-year period where everything I wrote was just fantastic.", related Noel in a recent interview. "And, of course, if all the B-sides for the singles off Morning Glory would’ve been what became the Be Here Now album, I think we would’ve gone on to be possibly one of the biggest bands of all time. Not that we’re not anyway. But I think we would’ve been as big as U2..."


I would be shocked to find Oasis is bigger than U2 in Manchester alone, much less all of England.

Based on Noel's comments, Be Here Now could have been excellent:

1. D'You Know What I Mean (edited to around 5 minutes)
2. Underneath the Sky
3. Acquiesce
4. The Masterplan
5. Don't Go Away
6. Stand By Me
7. Rockin' Chair
8. Stay Young
9. Step Out
10. I Hope I Think I know
11. Round Are Way
12. Half The World Away

Still no follow up to Wonderwall or DLBIA, but this tracklist probably wouldn't have tanked them they way the real BHN did.

Parklife most likely for me though I really enjoy Definitely Maybe!

I disagree with the first post's statement that Parklife is perhaps Blur's best! I think that's Modern Life is Rubbish personally. Plus the US and Japanese (re-release) versions got Pop Scene which is perhaps one of the best songs ever, certainly by Blur and they just refused to put it on the album since everyone ignored it when it was first released...

Pop Scene should have also made it onto the Best Of.

No All Around the World? Shorten it about 3 minutes, but it's still a great track. Some of those are Definitely Maybe/Morning Glory b-sides, and Going Nowhere is nowhere to be found, ironically. I still like the tracklist regardless, though.

Here's how I'd do it:

1. D'You Know What I Mean?
2. My Big Mouth
3. Stand by Me
4. Magic Pie
5. Don't Go Away
6. The Fame
7. (I Got) the Fever
8. I Hope, I Think, I Know
9. Fade Away (Warchild Version)
10. Going Nowhere
11. All Around the World

Be Here Now is easily Oasis's X&Y, it was built up to be amazing but was ultimately meh, with few great songs and a few good ones wrapped in a big mess of pretension with outstanding b-sides.

ridiculous.

i can't believe how few of you know anything about blur. what is it about oasis that makes them so popular around here?

any album with to the end and this is a low is better than anything oasis has ever, i repeat ever done for those two songs alone.

parklife takes a big dump all over definitely maybe in my not-at-all-humble opinion.

Be Here Now is fine as it is, if you just replaced Fade In/Out with Going Nowhere.

D'You KNow What I Mean and All Around The World just wouldn't be the same if they didn't go on forever. Love it....


This Is A Low is a bit of a bore, as is To The End. Blur are better when they have songs that have a bit more energy to them. Charmless Man, For Tomorrow, COuntry House, MOR.

Certainly...remove Music Is My Radar, use the album version of For Tomorrow, and then add Popscene and Chemical World. Yeah. That would have been something.

I can't think of a bigger Britpop band in North America than Oasis was in 1995-96. The media here gave them quite a chance, but the decline in the quality of their music inevitably led to their decline in popularity. However, I never thought they deserved it. Blur and especially Pulp are much better.
