I do somewhat agree that it could be a 3 or maybe 2.5 star album. It does have Stand By Me, D'You Know What I Mean, All Around The World (although it is way too long), It's Gettin Better Man and the title track. And I don't mind Magic Pie either.

I wouldn't mind getting Heathen Chem. Little By Little could very well be my all-time fav song of theirs!

Be Here Now is a funny album. They really defined a sound of arrogant assholes on coke playing guitars. Why is every other song over 7 minutes long? All Around the World is probably their worst. Is it me or the vocal melody in that one sounds like S Club 7 or something?

That said, D'You Know What I Mean rocks. 2 minutes too long, but I dig it. The first minute of Magic Pie isn't bad. Then it gets into coke madness of course.

Dig out your soul? Are we sure this is not actually the title of the new U2 album?



This is on album I'm not excited about, phew, this year is exciting enough music-wise. I've never liked Oasis much.

We should be grateful that U2 weren't able to take it first.

Meh. Hopefully they bring something new to the table, and I'll give it a listen but I'm not psyched, and yes that title is just terrible.

Yes!

I enjoy Don't Believe the Truth, but I prefer Heathen Chemistry. I think it's more varied and I just like the songs better. It's my favorite of theirs since Be Here Now...which rocks. Yes, yes it does. Make no mistake about it. The songs are too long and they were putting cocaine in their breakfast cereal every morning...but the songs are still there. I love Be Here Now. Also, Johnny Depp plays guitar on that album. Coolness.

Probably because a lot of U2 fans like bands that don't ape the same band over and over again, and ones whose members they can actually have some respect for.

What a lot of folk tend to (want to?) ignore is that Heathen Chem and SOTSOG were, for the most part, changes in musical direction.

SOTSOG especially is kinda psychadelic or chilled, a kind of extension of Magic Pie, but a lot more awesome. Take songs like Gas Panic!, Roll It Over and Who Feels Love. A very cruisy album, although let down by the obligation to restrict the number of Noel-sung songs to 3. Otherwise, Cigarettes In Hell and One Way Road would've been logical inclusions on the album at the expense of I Can See A Liar.

Heathen Chem almost has a bit of a country and western swagger about it in some songs, namely Force Of Nature, Hung In A Bad Place and She Is Love, while also extending that psychadelica from SOTSOG a little (Born On A Different Cloud, The Hindu Times). Little By Little and Songbird are just pure class.

There is also some atmosphere in that album - take for example Different Cloud. I love how aggressively the album begins. Hindu Times, Force of Nature, and Hung in a Bad Place are a highly-charged trio.

"Douchebag" is in the eye of the beholder, clearly.

As for Oasis albums, my ranking:

1. What's the Story
2. Don't Believe the Truth
3. Be Here Now
4. Definitely Maybe
5. Standing on the Shoulders
6. Heathen Chemistry

This was hard, as it would be easier to put them into 2 categories: great (1 and 2) and good (3-6) as the good albums are all similarly ranked and could be interchangeable depending upon my mood.

Though, Standing on the Shoulders would be moved up to great status if they'd left out a few songs and added in a few of the b-sides (Full On replacing Where Did It All Go Wrong, Let's All Make Believe replacing Little James).

1. Bag It Up

2. The Turning

3. Waiting For the Rapture

4. The Shock of the Lightning

5. I'm Outta Time

6. (Get Off Your) High Horse Lady

7. Falling Down

8. To Be Where There's Life

9. Ain't Got Nothin'

10. The Nature of Reality

11. Soldier On

-----------------------------

Not official yet, but widely reported, I wonder if Falling Down is a cover of the Travis song of the same name. Probably not, but would be cool if it was.


But where is Stop The Clocks, The Boy With The Blues and I Wanna Live In A Dream Iin My Record Machine?

No-ooooo. Really? I've never heard of bands, even O-Is, doing that. Interesting concept.

Well with Stop The Clocks and IWLIADWMRM, these songs have supposedly been 100% complete for some time, with little reason on intent to change anything about them.
