but I'm expecting it to be the greatest record of all time.
Sounds just like The Beatles.
and he smiled so much that a beautiful lady married him on the spot! his name was 'TVs Ian Beale'
like i do every Oasis album, with that shallow hope that something might hit me like their early material did.
Really weak album. Only 3 decent-ish songs, Shock Of The Lightning (and I only even half-rate this), Falling Down (genuinely good) and I'm Outta Time; sounds like The Beatles. When one of the two best songs on the record is written by Liam, you know you're in for a shit sandwich.
and they've taken plagiarism to a new level. Some 'homages' I've picked up on after just a couple of listens:
Give Peace A Chance, Hardest Button To Button, Dear Prudence, I Am The Walrus....I'm sure there are loads more.
...think it became pointless a long time ago to criticise oasis for plagerism.
If you take it for what it is then i think it has its moments (good and bad). I think it has about 5-6 really decent tunes (with the odd duff lyric). Falling Down is is particularly good IMO. I also quite like the overall sound of the album.
The non-gallagher tracks are pretty dirgy.
Overall i would say (except fot Falling Down) play it loud or don't play it at all.
I've only given it two listens. Agree that the production is good but then, if you're a band as big as Oasis, then there is no excuse for it being anything but.
What would you rate as the 5-6 really decent tunes?
..only listened to it a couple of times without the tracklisting so i'm not sure of the titles. The first 4 or five songs plus falling down. If the shock of the lightening didn't have that shit 'magical mystery' line i would be much improved.
Didn't mind 'soldier on' either.
Need a few more listens though. They were the first band that I truly loved, so i cant help but be a little 'friendly' with my analysis.
Well...I wasn't really expecting Noel Gallagher to read my criticisms and alter his songwriting style accordingly, so I suppose it is 'pointless' in that respect. But i still reserve the right to find it irritating and point this stuff out.
..it was a general comment . If i knew that you were such a sensitive soul then i would have kept schtum. Does your mum still get you valentines cards?
Really? What a fucking prick you are.
No - but your mum does. Tell the cunt to stop hassling me.
...you could have put that more politely. Everyone's the big man behind a computer screen eh?
But when some cunt starts getting arsey with me without provocation, then spiritofjazz is gonna bring the thunder, bitch.
