Totally agree, after 15 plays I just have not gotten into this CD (and how I love the band ).

Is it too disjointed?

Its a great album, but I suppose some need their cookie-cutter anthem-by-numbers type songs..this is an excellent progression for Oasis after the last three mediocre albums.

OASIS have confirmed details of their new single 'THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING IDLE'.

Released on August 22, the song is the second to be lifted from their current album ’Don’t Believe The Truth’.
Wow, I never saw that song as a single. It's a great song. Maybe my third favorite song with Noel on vocals (after Don't Look Back In Anger and Mucky Fingers) but I'm not sure if it's going to work as a single. Mucky Fingers should be the next single I think. Then Keep The Dream Alive.

Meaning of Soul is an Oasis classic.

Personally I think Guess God Thinks i'm Abel should be the second single.

a BELL will ring is awesome

Please. I'm not looking for cookie-cutter anthem-by-numbers songs. I am, however, looking for songs that sound as if the people who wrote them are actually interested in the music themselves. What I hear on this album is a band going through the motions more than anything else.

Personally I think the main reason people are hyping this album at all is simply because it is better than the last few Oasis albums. And being better than the last two albums isn't exactly saying that much. Better ≠ good. If this was Oasis' 2nd album I hardly think it would be as well received.

Oh dear... the arbiters of taste have descended from the rafters

I 'll tell you why the album is recieving considerable praise, and thats because its a very consistent album...sure there are no Wonderwall 10/10 songs, (although Importance Of Being Idle might prove a classic in time) but to me every song is at least excellent and worth hearing repeatedly, unlike the skipathons the last three were..and saying the band sound uninterested in what they're playing? well thats your opinion, I on the other hand feel they sound more energised and enthused on DBTT than they have in a long time. Also I would say to you that I am highly critical of their post 1995 output (you won't find me listening to 'Giants, Be Here Now and Heathen Chemistry) but I feel that they've gotten round to writing catchy songs that improve with each listen once more.


Its not crime to not be able to match Morning Glory and Definitely Maybe, two of the best albums by anyone..the new one isn't quite a masterpiece but is a very fine achievement indeed.

Why do people don't like Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants? It's a great album in my opinion. I mean: Go Let It Out, Who Feels Love, Gas Panic, Where Did It All Go Wrong, I Can See A Liar, Roll It Over are all great songs. And Fucking In The Bushes is a great opener and a great instrumental track. Great album. I think it's even stronger than Be Here Now.

I agree, Standing on Shoulders is a great album. Fucking in the Bushes always gets me psyched up.
And, WTF, just because i think the new album sounds good doesn't mean i only like cookie-cutter music. You know what they say about those who ASSume.

Man... Guess God Thinks I'm Abel has to be the most beatlesque Oasis song ever!!! Listen to the backing vocals in the part with the line 'no one could break us, no one could take us if they tried'! And of course the weird ending!




Anyway, pretty much every track here is so sing-along gorgeous!

Woah... plus Guess God Thinks I'm Abel has a beat almost identical to Two Of Us from Let It Be.

I only own Definitely Maybe. I know almost all the tracks from Morning Glory but have yet to buy it.

I got Don't Believe the Truth last month.

At first listen, I was very underwhelmed. I have no idea why.
Because now I absolutely love it. It's much more acoustic than I thought it would be and it's great! The guitar outro in Turn Up the Sun, the piano and lalala's in Love Like a Bomb, everything in Importance of Being Idle, the simple chorus in Guess God Thinks I'm Able (let's go find a rainbow), etc etc etc, all the way to Let There Be Love (which is soooooooooooooo Beatlesque they should almost be paying royalties )...: this album is just awesome!

The only track I don't enjoy is Mucky Fingers because of the beat. It's a shame, since the vocals are great.

Anyway: great album!

"Lyla" is the only song I've heard and it's too damn loud. Absolutely no finesse to it's production and arrangement and the volume on the vocals and guitars are way too high.

Listening to this album just makes me think "what went wrong?" Oasis were a band who were so so good at their peak (ie Definitely Maybe, Morning Glory and The Masterplan) and have gone slowly downhill from that point on. The latest album isn't even bad, it's just ordinary and so very disappointing from a band which once wrote songs like Live Forever, The Masterplan, Champagne Supernova and the like.

Its still holding up really well to me. Heathen Chemistry had already faded by this point after it came out..the songs are all excellent, but apart from "The Importance Of Being Idle" there aren't many amazing classics..what Oasis did on their first two albums was stunning, all those classic tunes..but no-one can maintain a standard like that (thats not to excuse Be Here Now, 'Giants and Heathen Chemistry).


However, the album works as a solid, coherent piece of work, its a true record with great flow that grows on you and has plenty of variety. Its easily their third best. If Definitely Maybe and Morning Glory are 10/10s, then I believe Don't Believe The Truth is in the 8.5/10 area, nothing to be ashamed of at all.

For a comparison, I see Be Here Now as a 3/10, Giants as 5/10, and HC as 5/10 also.

I'm not familiar with all their releases, but I do have WTSMG, and the new CD. I think both are great, and am enjoying them both (the latter has been played several times today while working). "Let There Be Love" has so many similarities to other bands/songs. The song is reminiscent of the Beatles, but his vocals are spot on the vocal sound of the band Squeeze...

So does nobody see the overtly beatlesque nature of Guess God Thinks??? It sounds practically like Oasis featuring John Lennon on vocals!

I can't say that it does! Of Liam's songs Born on A Different Cloud is the most Lennon-esque I think.
