I'm impressed that Gem wrote To Be Where There's Life. That song is cracking.

I have to agree regarding I'm Outta Time. This is Liam's best composition ever. It's just so beautiful. Love the John Lennon part at the end, too.

The Turning and Falling Down are other favorites so far.

I haven't heard the bonus disc yet. Didn't know it had leaked, too. I'll have to listen tonight.

By far the closest they've got to Morning Glory and Definitely Maybe. It's not as good as those albums but it's very strong. I think a couple of songs the calibre of Bag It Up and The Turning, instead of Ain't Got Nothin' and Nature Of Reality, would put it alongside those two albums.

I'd give it at least an 8, maybe 9/10.


They're back.

Wow...I guess I'm pretty much the only Oasis fan who doesn't particularly like this album? After 3 listens through, there still aren't any standout tracks for me, and I've loved pretty much everything that they've done up until this album. This, for me, is a first for an oasis album. Am I really alone here? It seems as though everyone loves it and I'm kind of disappointed in the album.....

There aren't very many standout tracks, but there aren't any terrible ones either. The last time that happened was probably Morning Glory.

Oh, and The Turning. Listen to it again.

Not many standout tracks on Morning Glory?

No way.

No, I meant that there weren't any terrible tracks for the first time since Morning Glory.

3/4 of that album is standout, if such a thing is even possible.

The only track on Morning Glory that I don't think is standout is Hey Now. Anyway, the bonus disc was quite good.

Cast No Shadow is as pretentious as Champagne Supernova, but never manages the climax. That's the one I would consider a weak link. I've always loved Hey Now.

I used to be indifferent about Cast No Shadow. It's a serious grower, though, as it took years for me to really start liking it. Now it's one of my favourites. I used to like Hey Now as much as I liked Some Might Say, but it's descended a bit for me. Then again, Hey Now's still above most of Be Here Now->Heathen Chemistry.

umm...no, you definitely aren't alone.........I'm really not diggin' this album at all....and the first track makes zero sense to me...it sounds like rubbish, to be honest...it's all a bit perplexing

Maybe it can be saved by repeated listens...I doubt it but we'll see......

I find straightforward British rock perplexing as well.
