Before I got into U2, my favourite band was Oasis. U2 went further up the list, however, as the quality of Oasis albums went down.

However, I've been pulling out some old Oasis tracks recently, and I've become a bigger fan of WTSMG than I used to be. Melodically, you can't go wrong with this album. Overall quality, however, is DM...with the exception of "Shakermaker," it's a very consistent album.

The B-sides were always amazing, too: "Talk Tonight," "Headshrinker," "The Masterplan," "Whatever" (not really a b-side, but never on an album), "Acquiesce," "Half The World Away..."

I'd also say that, while "Wonderwall" got a lot of people into Oasis, they had at least half a dozen better songs in their career.

But still, the songs are all great.
That's exactly how I feel about DM, put in a far clearer way than I would have ever managed myself. Especially the comment about "noisy mess". Take 'Slide Away' for example, would that not have benefitted immensely from a slightly softer production rather than once again trying to emphasize Oasis's 'raw' sound and in turn imply their working class roots and 'angry' attitude?

Even WTSMG sounds rather...basic to me. That isn't quite what I mean (can you help me out Typhoon? ) but if you listen to it and then compare its production to that of BHN's morse code, codas, etc. it does make the 'fillers' from WTSMG seem like they could have been done so much better.

I doubt any of the above makes any sense whatsoever but anyway, thanks Typhoon for writing that.

i think we might have been separated at birth

oasis were my fav band before i discovered U2

and i also share the same views as you on them and think DM is their best album. although i like Shakermaker as well

This thread is really making me want to pick up Definitely Maybe. I've meant to for quite some time now,but I havent exactly been in love with Oasis for the last 9 years, so I havent. In all honesty, sometimes I feel like I flat out hate them. Maybe I'll have to pick it up used, I honestly think I'd like it far more than Morning Glory from the descriptions/reviews I've read.

tough call but i'd have to go with Definitely Maybe. Whereas as Morning Glory has the classics like wonderwall, don't look back in anger, & champagne supernova, Definitely Maybe is a solid album from start to finish. And it has songs like Live Forever (instant classic), Slide Away (most underrated song ever), and Supersonic. I personally think that Definitely Maybe is the greatest debut record every. Oh, and I also love Be Here Now....one of my favorite Oasis songs, Don't Go Away, is on it. Here's how i rank their albums

1.) Definitely Maybe
2.) (What's the Story) Morning Glory
3.) Don't Believe The Truth
4.) The Masterplan
5.) Heathen Chemistry
6.) Be Here Now
7.) Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants

even the albums that i ranked lower i still love. it's just that its so tough since Oasis has such a great catalouge of songs...

I never like Ciagarettes either mainly cos it was a complete rip-off of Get it On by T Rex

Be Here Now is underrated and I reckon the album would be perfect if you just shorten the album length by cutting Girl in the Dirty Shirt and Fade In/Out from the album.

Then you get about a 10 track 60 minute album, and it's an amazing journey, particularly towards the end. Man, what a fantastic album.

Pity it got such bad press. I kinda felt that many critics were determined to bring the BritPoP craze to an abrupt halt, cause they were prejudiced against the sub-genre.

For the Record, I reckon Morning Glory is a lot better than Defintely Maybe, yet both are stunning albums.

Live Forever, RocknRoll Star, Colombia, Supersonic, Marriedwith children.....wow!

But Morning Glory is better overall.


Oasis. What are F***ing awesome band.

I'm in awe of their "f***ing sonic ability."

I'm not the biggest Oasis fan. I have What's The Story Morning Glory & the new CD (which I've misplaced ) and just picked up Definitely Maybe. I've only heard it a few times, but I can tell that WTSMG kicks A$$ on DM - there's just no contest... at least in my opinion...

i used to love oasis but after be here now failed on so many levels i'm beginning to think that maybe their success was a fluke. i mean true that DM and Morning Glory were kick ass in their day but in retrospect way too much guitar and treble. where is the bass? where are the classic tracks? they had some good lyrics and a couple good melodies... that's it. other than that it was the 2 gallaghers just running their mouths like little kids. i mean it was amusing for a few weeks in 95/96 but not after that...

I reckon that I agree 100% with you, but you also cut down the length of Fade In/Out it also becomes quite good. The reprise could have been taken out and perhaps a lot of the extra verses.
