Our Review

It was impossible for Oasis to exceed the rock’n’roll heroics of their sophomore album, (What’s the Story) Morning Glory, but that didn’t stop them from trying with 1997’s Be Here Now. The album finds Noel Gallagher desperately attempting to write his own “Hey Jude” in the form of several extended anthems —“D’You Know What I Mean?,” “All Around the World,” and “Magic Pie.” Weighed with guitar overdubs, banner-waving choruses, and multi-part song structures, those songs and others on Be Here Now nearly collapse under their own sense of self-importance. In his obsession with making every aspect of Oasis bigger and bigger, Noel was in danger of letting go of the sneering punk recklessness that had made the band such a success to begin with. Yet, listening back to Be Here Now ten years after its release, one can find great songs lurking behind the bombast. “The Girl in the Dirty Shirt” swirls into an easygoing psychedelic groove, while “My Big Mouth” and “I Hope, I Think, I Know” feature electric vocals from Liam Gallagher that recapture some of the spit and fire of Definitely Maybe.

A Flawed, But Still Brilliant Album (5 stars)

First off, sure this album isn't as good as Definitely Maybe or (What's The Story) Morning Glory?. Noel Gallagher had set a lightning pace with Oasis's first two albums, and at some point they had to make an album that was a step backwards. It's unfortunate that it happened right when the band was the biggest band in the entire world, leaving Oasis vulnerable to a gigantic backlash if they didn't follow with an album at least as good as (W

Oasis Most underrated album (5 stars)

OK, the crap people spew about this album is just mystifying. This album was my introduction to Oasis, so before SUPERSONIC and WONDERWALL came ALL AROUND THE WORLD and THE GIRL IN THE DIRTY SHIRT. The songs are long, but so is The Godfather, War and Peace and The Golden Gate bridge and that doesn't make them bad. This album, front to back, is fast and hard and excellent. Now, their next album, STANDING ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS: THA

Bet you didn't know… (5 stars)

Good Album…

Bit o' Trivia: Johnny Depp stepped in and played the lead slide guitar for "Fade In-Out." Didn't know that did you?


Biography

Formed: 1993 in Manchester, England
Genre: Rock
Years Active: '90s, '00s

Oasis shot from obscurity to stardom in 1994, becoming one of Britain's most popular and critically acclaimed bands of the decade in the process. Along with Blur and Suede, they were responsible for returning British guitar pop to the top of the charts. Led by guitarist/songwriter Noel Gallagher, the Manchester quintet adopted the rough, thuggish image of the Stones and the Who, crossed it with “Beatlesque” melodies and hooks, injected distinctly British lyrical themes and song structures like the…
