genius nor shite. Just a band that was once very inspired and then completely lost it. That's it
who are the two world class songwriters in Oasis?
Oh you said IN, you know what I mean.
this week it says "If they were on K Records then Pitchfork would love them."
The "if they were...then X would love them" argument is usually a stupid one to make
because of the things he says, like Oasis are the only band around that he gets excited about these days.... your so out of touch and for a music journalist that is NOT a good thing :) bless him
undoubtedly, Dig out your soul is class!
Four mediocre albums
and the new oasis tune came on the radio it was a tepid peice of blad bollocks and it was met with txt to sarah cox sayin it6s the best thing ever and it was so moving it made poeople cry...
I was so very confused.
WERE YOU LISTENING TO SARAH COX?!???!?!
The woman can't even fucking speak properly, yet she gets a slot on the radio. Fucking bitch.
I just kinda left the radio on in the car I didn't have a tape to hand and my mp3 battry died.
relevant and now they are repetitive
2 albums plus pretty-damn-good B-sides to start, followed with the overrated at the time Be Here Now, but that one is kinda underrated now. It's bad, but it has a touch of the original magic in there.
Problem is what follows is all bollocks, thus reducing their reputation as a decent band to nowt.
but the new album is very good especially the songs written by Noel and I'm Outta Time by Liam. The band wear their influences on their sleeves and you can tell Dear Prudence is right at the end of the Turning for crying out loud.
Loads of other bands do the same it just not as blatant as Oasis.
but they're not genius either.
Just a good rock 'n' roll band.
THEY WERE OKAY ONCE.
Oops caps lock.
end of debate i guess
Noel - Genius
end of discussion.
First two albums are very good, after that they range from OK to poor, with some good songs along the way. And their best song is Whatever.
And Noel and Liam are two of the biggest wankers in music.
