11 new tracks from Oasis, the vast majority of which are very good, making it their best album in quite a while.

The good news is that Noel Gallagher seems to have rediscovered his muse, and his 6 songs on the album are among the best Oasis have made. Strangely, his offerings are also the ones that sound least like Oasis- ranging from psychedelic ('Bag it up') to Bluesy ('(get off your) high horse lady)) to a dreamy, out of this world feel ('falling down', my personal favourite from the album). Luckily every sound seems to work and it gels together surprisingly well.

The problem is that all of Noel's songs come in the first 2/3s of the album, leaving the other band members to fill the gaps. Liam offers 3 songs. First is 'I'm outta time', which is a typical Liam-written Lennon style ballad, although it is rather good. His second song 'Ain't got nothin'', is unfortunately quite poor, whilst 'Soldier On' is a solid but unspectacular conclusion to the album.

Finally, there's an offering from both Gem Archer and Andy Bell. 'To be where there's life' is a grower, (and surprisingly doesn't feature any guitars,) whilst 'The Nature of Reality' features terrible lyrics and is the second poor song on the album.

Overall, it's a better album then 'Don't Believe the Truth', but don't expect the string of great songs in the first half of the album to last. Why 'the shock of the lightning' was chosen as the first single is a mystery to me, as is why Oasis appear to have dismissed better songs (such as 'Record Machine' and 'Stop the Clocks'), just to be democratic.
If you like Oasis, you'll love it anyway, and if you're unconvinced you might be in for a nice surprise.

Best tracks: 'Bag it up' and 'Falling down'.

Oasis have mellowed in their old age. Liam Now gets up every morning and jog's like a madman....Oh and apparently he can cook salmon brilliantly.
Yes the self proclaimed "salmon king" and his older brother step into the fray once again with Dig out your soul. The first half is actually very good. But after the sixth song it turns into a bland jamming session. Very much like salmon but without any seasoning whatsoever.

Bag it up is a fantastic nuthouse of a song. (aka beetles esque)...again. Yet i raise the point. When film and Tv make so many homage's to classic films in scenes it's aplauded. If Oasis sound a wee bit like the beetles they get savaged for it.
Turning and waiting for the rapture are Ok songs, waiting for the rapture being slightly better full of thumping drums and some fine singing from Noel.

Now Shock of the lightning....I nearly wet myself when i heard this tune. It's like a forgotten song from definatley maybe. I thought to myself here it comes the album i've been waiting for from the manc masters. I was dissapointed when i heard the album as it is a one off. But a majestic one, off being transported back to the mid ninteys for four minutes thanks boys.
High horse lady is Noels shining track a very likeable track. A great grower.
I'm out of time shows Liam can write a tune. A fantastic tune A little light and very balladish. Great effort for an acomplished songwriter.

Then thats it. Really the rest of the album is the band going through the motions.
Saying that, nature of reality is the only saving grace in the rest of the five songs. A stomping tune very nice stuff.

Now then. If the first six songs were acompanied with five other "shock of the lightning" tracks this album would be a masterpiece. However as it is they should have held back another year to finnish it off.

when put alongside the Kings of leon album only by the night this album is decidely average.

This for me is a good album, not amazing, it's no 22 Dreams, they're no Rolling Stones and they lack real originality, but nevertheless this is enjoyable. It didn't have me constantly coming back for more but it's highlights are pretty damn high. For me the highlights come in the form of Get Off Your High Horse, its "stompiness" appeals to me, the Gem penned Nature Of Reality and Outta Time, there is more emotion in this song than any other of theirs. None of the above break any ground for Oasis but next to their recent work it's pretty special.

Sadly a fair few of the tracks are forgettable, The Turning, Waiting For The Rapture and Ain't Got Nothing haven't been listened to on my iTunes for many months. Soldier On Is okay but drags on Shock Of The Lightning is a strong single but doesn't have quite the same impact as their earlier singles, it's no Live Forever.

Gem, Liam and the bassist (sorry I can't recall his name) have come into some criticism for their input, I've heard people say that Noel should have wrote the lot, well I disagree, Gem and Liam contribute well enough and Andy Bells'(I've remembered!) contribution in To Be Where There's Life has one hell of a bass line, it does sound a bit like a Beatles rip off though.

Anyway. To conclude this is a good album, it is one of their strongest but it does nothing special, perhaps it is a fitting finale for one of Britain's all time most successful bands, lyrically weak but it'll get the foot tapping. It won't blow your mind but you might just like it. They certainly do this better than Kasabian.
