HEATHEN CHEMISTRY REVIEW

Tracklisting:

1. The Hindu Times
2. Force of Nature
3. Hung In A Bad Place
4. Little by Little
5. Songbird
6. Stop Crying Your Heart Out
7. (Instrumental)
8. All in the Mind
9. She is Love
10. Born on a Different Cloud
11. Better man

1. The Hindu Times-9/10

1st single and strong opening track. Brilliant intro with raucous guitar riff similar to the Stereophonics’ “Same Size Feet”, the rest is pure Oasis!. Liam is in superb form throughout and this song brings back the classic Oasis sound. Repetitive melody, chorus and lyrics carried through in classic Oasis style, reminiscent of the 94/95 days, especially Roll With It. Full of energy and already regarded as an anthem a live favourite. A perfect start.

2. Force of Nature-8/10

Noel sung composition, which was written in the SOTSOG sessions back in 1999. Starts of with a bouncy drum beat (similar to Instant Karma) and leads in to a bluesy guitar into. Excellent flowing guitars and strong vocals. The whole feel of the song is generally bluesy with Noel’s vocals turned upto 9. Better than the live version and likely to grow popular in time.

3. Hung In A Bad Place-9/10

Explosive! The closest to a Definitely Maybe composition they have done in ages. Reminiscent of the DM days in its simplicity, a bit like “Bring It On Down”. Gems first song for the band and it’s a classic Rock’n’Roll blast. Fans with a good knowledge of early stuff will notice the Stooges influence on this track. Full of energy with strong guitars and a great solo. Liam in perfect sneering mood, his vocals carry through this track superbly and with ease. If this doesn’t wake you up, then you don’t have a pulse!. Just over 3 mins of classic Oasis rock ‘n’ roll. Enough said. .

4. Little by Little-7/10

Noel sung track that has a similar sound to some of the SOTSOG demos like Carry Us All, Solve My Mystery and Cigarette’s in Hell. A decent song in it’s own right, but would have probably benefited more with Liam on lead vocals. The melody is generally strong and the guitars once again help to carry the song through with style. Ending is similar to that of Roll It Over. It’s not the most prominent track on the album but definitely likely to be a grower.

5. Songbird-8˝/10

Another Liam penned track and it’s another very good effort. Dedicated no doubt to Nicole. The vibe is very White Album/Rubber Soul and is one of the most Beatleseque tracks that Oasis have ever done. . He has come a long way since the days of Little James! The track is just over 2 mins long which makes it the shortest Oasis song to date (excluding instrumentals). It has a very effective acoustic like melody, which carries Liam’s vocals with considerable ease. Liam is in a confident and relaxed mood and this is greatly reflected in the song. Short but sweet, very nice indeed!

6. Stop Crying Your Heart Out-9 ˝ /10

The 2nd single that will be released from this album and it’s an absolute classic. Noel has managed to write a track that combines the styles of Slide Away and Don’t Go Away in superb style. It starts of with a piano into and as soon as Liam’s vocals kick in you get the impression that is a classic Oasis song. His vocals are amazing throughout the song and flow with great emotion. The classical synth sounds in the background also carry the song effectively and give it an extra edge. A classic track and possible the strongest song on the album. Simply beautiful.

7. (Instrumental)-8/10

This instrumental track is a superbly timed break from the album (it takes a while to recover from the previous tracks’ greatness!). It’s only 1.17mins long but Oasis once again retains their reputation of coming up with an appropriate and effective instrumental. This one has the band jamming with ease, and it has quite a retro feel to it with a kind of Albatross (Fleetwood Mac) vibe. This is especially evident in the flowing guitar breaks. Very good and definitely not just an album filler.

8. All in the Mind-9/10

A superb uplifting song. Starts of rather psychedelically and storms into the main verse with Liam’s vocals kicking in with great pinache. The vibe in this song is quite similar to that of Rain by the Beatles, which gives it a strong edge. The lead vocals by Liam are once again superb with Noel also supporting well, and the guitars are brilliant once again. Another classic song and hopefully a future single. Glorious.

9. She is Love-9/10

Noel’s 3rd sung composition and probably his best vocal performance on the album. Dedicated to his girlfriend Sara, the lyrics are emotional amd personal which make this acoustic fuelled song flow with ease. Noel is in a confident and happy mood (like the days of “It’s Better People” etc.) and this is certainly reflected in the song. A happy track and another uplifting Oasis song. Superb.


10. Born on a Different Cloud-8/10

This is another Liam penned track (dedicated to his son Lennon) and one of the most eagerly anticipated on the album. Admittedly it’s not one of the most accessible tracks on the album although it really grows on the listener after a few listens and becomes an epic. The track has a very John Lennonesque style feel and melody thoughout, which is carried well by Liam. The flute style intro is quite refreshing and Liam’s vocals are once again very effective and reflects his emotions well. He has certainly matured as a songwriter. Not an instant classic (on the first few listens) but will definitely sound better over time. A very promising song.


11. Better Man-8 ˝ /10

Final track of the album and it’s Liam’s 3rd song on the album. It has quite a dark feel to it although that does not deter that fact that it is still a strong track. Fans who are familiar with the band’s earlier demos (from pre-94) will no doubt compare it to “Must Be The Music” which was a decent track in it’s own right. Liam once again is in superb sneering mood. The lyrics are quite simple and focus around the line “I wanna be a better man”. The “Ahs” in the song can be compared to that of the “Ahs” in Shakermaker. The guitar swirls are quite effective thoughout and carry the song along superbly. It maybe a strange choice to have this as the closing track of the album although it’s a very good song which is sung in a classic Liam style.

OASIS ARE BACK and I'm reluctant to say it but this absolutely blows atyclb out of the water

d/l it, pure classic, up there with JT

mug222 04-07-2002 10:57 PM

I've heard "Stop Crying Your Heart Out" on every album Oasis has ever put out. There's no way this is a classic: it's hardly even new material. Trash it.

Achtung Zooropa 04-08-2002 03:33 AM

This new album is great! My new Oasis album favorites are in this order:

1. Be Here Now
2. Definately Maybe
3. Heathen Chemistry
4. Standing on the Shoulder of Giants
5. What's the Story(Morning Glory)
6. The Masterplan

And I do think that Familiar to Millions is one of the best live albums ever and the DVD is awesome as well.

soctheo 04-08-2002 06:31 PM

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.

Mac Phisto 04-08-2002 09:25 PM

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...!


Se7en 04-08-2002 11:35 PM

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.

Rock 'N Roll is the sound of revenge.

Foxxern 04-09-2002 02:04 AM

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.

I think what he meant was it sounds very similar to other Oasis songs,recycled if you like.

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.


Foxxern 04-09-2002 10:55 PM

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.

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

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.

Too lazy to do it. I really hate Audio Galaxy and Kazaa in terms of downloading music b/c the quality of music and the difficulty in finding it. I'm willing to wait and buy the album. Wilco is a great band but I just started hearing about them/ listening to them over the past couple of months. Oasis I've been a fan for a while and the link was here so...

Simple enough explanation. I will buy new Wilco when it comes out.

If you like the song Morning Glory a lot, you might actually want to go with the album before that, which was called Definitely Maybe. It has more of an in-your-face rock sound like MG.
