Go to yahoo, search Oasis, and go to "underneath the sky" and go the message board. you'll find a link to the mp3's. or go to www.oa515.com and search there!

I really like Oasis. I have all of their albums but i'm pretty dissapointed by Heathen Chemistry. Don't get me wrong. The album is alright, but its not great or can even be classified as amazing.

I think the Hindu Times, Songbird, Stop Crying Your Eyes Out, and She Is Love are standout tracks. The rest of the album is boring and mediocre.

The instrumental which is track seven sounds like George Harrison's All Those Years Ago. Forces of Nature has Instant Karma's drum beat. Hung in A Bad Place and BetterMan sound like throwaways. The lyrics on the entire album are uninspiring and really say nothing to me.

In my opinion, Be Here Now was Oasis's last great masterpiece. Even though critics have bashed that album, if you listen to the whole album, its top notch rock in roll played with ball. It has an in your face attitude. The bsides like Stay Young and Going Nowhere were so good that they belonged on the album as well.

I hope Heathen Chemistry is a hit unlike Standing which was an absolute embarrasment of an album but Heathen is by no means a classic album nor is it the Gallaghers best work.

Liam said in NME's latest mag that Oasis are more important than U2 or REM. Noel Gallagher has slagged off Radiohead recently. I think it all comes down to the quality of music one is making and if Heathen Chemistry is any indication, both gallagher's should shut their mouths.

Head on the verge of explosion...too many people writing rambling posts about album being shit without giving it time to sink in...mind remembering back when people said that 'beautiful day' was terrible and bono's voice was shot...pain, PAIN, PAIN! Give it time.


I love Oasis.

I haven't heard this album yet, but the thought of Oasis coming out with a great album makes me deliriously happy!I do have "The Hindu Times" on pre-order from amazon.com.uk and should have it in about 2 weeks.

The first three Oasis albums (yes, that includes "Be Here Now") are the best albums of the 90's not released by U2. I think they're great, although I wish Liam would learn to behave...!

I'm not really a big fan of Oasis...sure, the singles I've heard are good...although, I can't say I've heard an Oasis single since the mid-90s. However, I really enjoyed this album. It's a shame I'm going to have to wait until this summer to get it. Little By Little is probably my favorite track. Songbird, The Hindu Times, and Hung In A Bad Place are others that stood out to me. I wouldn't say it's a classic, but it's nice to see some good rock n roll.

Yup, I think this album has great comeback potential after the transitionary and unfocused Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants, as well as the overblown (to the critics) Be Here Now. If Sony can manage to properly promote Heathen Chemistry, they could have a real hit on their hands. With The Hindu Times as the first single, they picked a great song to showcase some of the best sides of Oasis. Next they should probably go with either Little By Little or She Is Love, followed by Hung In A Bad Place. People could see the varied sides of the album, and manage to make Oasis popular again here in the US.

Every band has to retread older material in some way, even U2. Many of the themes and music styles remain constant within every album. Just accept these songs for what they are--heartfelt tunes. Sure Stop Crying sounds somewhat like Don't Go Away or Wonderwall, but it's true to itself, and it succeeds as a great track here. If you don't like the music, fair enough. But I would never say its not new material. It's different from anything they've done before, and I think the band sounds great together here.

I think the album, if promoted well, has great commercial potential. This album is very focused, and the band should use that to their advantage.

Unfortunately, this is often the case, and it is the reason I no longer like "All That You Can't Leave Behind," save for 2 or 3 songs (one of which is New York, because it sounds almost entirely new to my ears).

However, you make this statement as if it is an undeniable truth. That's not the case, and for proof check out Wilco. From A.M. to Being There to Summerteeth and especially to their latest Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, they have never retread once. Their evolution has been remarkable--it should be the goal for any aspiring band--and has resulted in truly a remarkable album in YHF, a record that will set the bar for this decade when it drops later this month.

I would argue that they're not heartfelt--Stop Crying... sounds nice the first time and increasingly trite on each successive listen--but that's admittedly a hard claim to make either way. What's not hard to claim is that Oasis repeatedly, clearly, and unashamedly poach their own riffs and melodies, and it gives me the distinct impression that I've been listening to Heathen Chemistry for years. And not in a good way.

This I agree with, unfortunately. Although Oasis' is somewhat better than most of the crap that currently clutters the charts, it saddens me that Wilco's masterpiece will go relatively unnoticed, most likely.

Well, I didn't mean literally every band. I meant every band looking for commercial success--I realize there is a large difference. I don't know if a band can succeed by continuously changing their sound too much, or they risk losing members of their audience. We saw this with U2, who seemed to alienate many of their fans with Zooropa and Pop. Most bands just aren't willing to take that kind of risk. And really, they should be allowed to make whatever music they want to.

I admit I don't know much about Wilco, but they certainly don't sound like the type of band looking for huge commercial success. I applaud them for doing what they want to, but realize that in order to be a pop band, you usually have to write pop songs. Oasis have never been the type of band to make incredibly groundbreaking music, but rather straight ahead rock music that gets on the radio and that people can sing along to. Nothing wrong with that.

As for shamelessly borrowing, well Noel put it best saying "Why write your own tunes when you can nick someone else's?" They're not trying to hide it, so I figure just let them do what they need to. If the music's good, that's really all I care about.

Oh man, love the album!

Little by little is just awesome. The best moment: "You know I didn't mean/What I Just Said/But my God woke up on the wrong side of his bed". WOW. Classic.

Songbird, I wish this song was longer. Its sooooooooooooo good. It's unique, very diff for Oasis. Liam sounds great.

Still listening...

I wonder what Wilco's new album will sound like but to say that they don't repeat a sound on following albums isn't necessarily true IMO. Some of the songs on Being There could have been on Summer Teeth or vice versa.

There may be passing moments of similarity but you can hardly call Summerteeth (gorgeous, Beach Boys-like lush pop) a repetition of Being There (alt-country rock/pop), like you can say for Oasis or even for U2 at times.

By the way, why wonder what Yankee Hotel Foxtrot will sound like? It's been out on the internet for a year. It's better than any of their previous efforts (which says a lot) and it's the best music I've heard in 5 years (which says even more).


Oh and in response to Foxxern: Point taken. All that really matters is whether you like the music, and I'm glad you do. I can't enjoy the music because I've been tired of these songs for 5 years. Just my personal opinion, of course.
