Whitey's drums at the end of 'My Big Mouth' so yeah, I'm easily impressed!

and i also share the same views as you on them and think DM is their best album. although i like Shakermaker as well
Ha. I think "Shakermaker" annoys me because it reminds me of that Coca-Cola ad.

As for the BHN convo going on here, one of the most underrated songs from the album is "Don't Go Away." But it sounds a lot better live and with Noel on vocals...absolutely amazing song. (Then again, I always thought Noel was the better vocalist in the band, but that's a whole other thread )

When I first heard "Slide Away," I wondered why it hadn't been a single. I agree that it was very much an underrated song. Maybe it would have been too sappy for their image at the time? Although one of the reasons why I've always liked this song–both the recorded version and Noel's acoustic version during concerts–is that the vocal delivery is strong and detached, letting the lyrics speak for themselves. They could have also gone for a slower strings arrangement, but instead went for the wall of guitar sound and an awesome guitar solo. Brilliant.

Yet another reason why DM is the stronger album!

Yeah, i agree somewhat.

I loved it immediately when it was a single, and it was just the other day I was thinking about it's potential as a "Noel" song.
I sometimes wonder whether having MAGIC PIE as the token Noel song, was a mistake and it should have been Don't Go Away instead.

It would be of that similar grand sound of DLBIA, WDIAGW and Little By Little...all classic tracks and unquestionalbly good songs.

Whether, Noel is a better singer than Liam, well, that depends on the song. There is a lot of songs where a song's quality can be enforced by Liam and Liam only. (Eg. I Can See A Liar, Be Here Now, Rock and Roll Star)

To add my 2 pence worth on the subject of Liam's voice, there did come a point when I thought Liam's voice had totally gone, unable to reach the high notes it just became sneering and scratchy- perfect perhaps for the rockier tunes but what about the slower songs that Liam used to be able to sing so well? Remember all the high notes Liam used to sing on DM ('Up In The Sky' might be the best example)? Fast-forward to the HC album (their worst album IMHO) and '(Probably) All In The Mind' Noel singing ALL the high notes over the top of Liam struggling to reach them. It would have been better just to let Liam attempt to hit the note alone because all Noel did was emphasize the fact that Liam had problems reaching the notes...

All of which explains why I so surprised by 'Don't Believe The Truth' and in particular, 'Let There Be Love', Liam back on form singing in a tender style not heard since SOTSOG.

Or how about Familiar To Millions? Sounds like he gargled with dirt backstage before the show.

My vote to definetely maybe............. morning glory is very overrated. Both have one throwaway track (digsys dinner, hey now) but otherwise def maybe blows glory right out of the water.

even dont believe the truth comfortably tops morning gloy.

I remember being so shocked when I first heard 'Go Let It Out' on FTM. Liam just sounds so throaty and then when the crowd started chanting "Liam, Liam" after 'Who Feels Love?". I dunno what Liam had done on stage (I only have the CD) but I doubt they were cheering his singing!

But I think he did improve as the show went on (thankfully!). I mean Supersonic sounds...not too bad and Roll with It/Stand By Me/Wonderwall is good. Live Forever was good too. But again, Noel was doing that really irritating thing of singing over Liam.

The whole CD started to grow on me after a while. I mean it's better than some audio releases of live bands (see 'Best of Blur', the instruments don't even sound in tune!). Then I got 'U2 Go Home' and was blown away even if I did think "What the heck is Bono doing rolling around on the stage floor?!!"

I think FTM was a strange release looking back because although playing Wembley was/will be a big thing, everyone knows Liam could, and hopefully still can, do better live. Surely there must have been a live show from that era in terms of Liam's voice? Can't fault the rest of the band though, flawless playing.

Still, I'm led to believe Liam's voice is back on form this tour so one of the best live bands about (IMHO) should be on top form again (even if it is without Whitey )

Nothing wrong with Digsy's Dinner and Hey Now....

Throwaway track from DM in my opinion is Bring It On Down, and Hello from WTSMG.

Liam started the chant.
