Product Description

Product Description

Don't Believe The Truth is the sixth Oasis studio album – their first since the number one multi-million selling Heathen Chemistry, released in 2002. It includes the soon-to-be-classic single "Lyla". Noel Gallagher describes the track as "the Soundtrack of our Lives doing The Who on Skol in a psychedelic city in the sky (or something!)"

BBC Review

After a three-year wait for Oasis to release the follow up to Heathen Chemistry I'm sure you'd love to read that Don't Believe the Truth is a return to form. Back to the glory days of Britpop, teeming with modern classics like "Whatever" and "Cigarettes And Alcohol".

I'm sure you'd love me to write that. But it simply wouldn't be true. However, the good news is that this album is their best work since 1997's Be Here Now.

The truth is that Noel Gallagher could probably write a whole album's worth of "Wonderwall"s if he put his mind to it, but what would be the point? We don't need another "Wonderwall" when Noel is writing songs like album highlights "The Importance Of Being Idle" and "Part Of The Queue", two of the finest songs he's written in years. So what if one rips off The Kinks and the other The Stranglers? We're talking about Oasis, what did you expect?

As for Liam, his voice sounds great again, and his song writing has come on leaps and bounds since his previous efforts. "Love Like A Bomb" is a gentle acoustic number with beautiful twinkling piano and "The Meaning Of Soul" is another of the album's highlights. Imagine early b-side "Headshrinker" played acoustic, if you can. At only 1 minute 43 seconds it's practically gone before you know it, but still manages to leave you gasping. It's so good you could almost forgive Liam for the Standing On the Shoulder Of Giants lyrical atrocity that was "Little James". Almost...

Don't Believe the Truth is far from perfect. Andy Bell's Revolver-esque "Keep The Dream Alive" sounds like it was left over from the aforementioned flop Standing On the Shoulder Of Giants. What's more, album closer "Let There Be Love" is a typical Oasis ballad - but it sounds like it's looking backwards whilst the rest of the album tries to look to the future.

After the dust has settled, I doubt that this record will be hailed as a classic Oasis album, up there with Definitely Maybe or Morning Glory butit won't be forgotten. Hopefully it just might be remembered as the moment Oasis regained their sense of direction. --Simon Fernand

The quote mostly associated with this album by the music press was something like 'widely regarded as a return to form'. And yet, as a massive Oasis fan, I can't help but feel this album was a couple of decisions away from being a real classic. Or rather, there are a handful of songs on this album that are inches from being a return to form. And the reason I would argue that, is that in reality the combination that made Oasis one of the greatest bands in the history of British music was Liam Gallagher singing Noel Gallagher's songs. And there is a reason for that - both Gallagher brothers are brilliant, and are amongst the greatest ever in their chosen discipline.

Now no one can argue that the introduction to Oasis albums of songs written by Liam, Gem Archer and Andy Bell has meant that the songs Noel has contributed to an album are of a higher quality. He explained why this had happened himself - he simply had more time to work on the songs. The problem then, is not with songs being contributed by others, but with Noel's songs being sung, almost solely, by Noel. I would suggest that the only song on this album that it was necessary for Noel to sing is the great single The Importance of Being Idle, which with it's Kinks-esque chorus and lovely lyric is an Oasis classic. It also, of course, had a brilliant video (starring Rhys Ifans). Let There Be Love sends shivers down my spine throughout, especially when Noel comes in in the Middle 8. And Lyla, in some ways, was probably the best single since Morning Glory. But the chance to make Mucky Fingers one of the best Oasis songs of all time was there, but without Liam's growling vocals it becomes merely very good. Part of the Queue is a difficult one, but I can't help but think - if in doubt, let Liam do it.

This is a terrific return to form for Oasis, as the tracks here bristle with self-confidence and energy.
Much has been made of the shared songwriting, as Liam, Gem and Andy Bell chip in with some fine songs.
But Noel is really the star of the show. 'The Importance...Idle' is as good as anything he's ever written, and 'Mucky Fingers' & 'Part Of The Queue' find him stretching his wings into different styles.
Unlike the hideously underproduced 'Heathen Chemistry', 'Don't Believe..' sounds as strong as the songs. Producer Dave Sardy has done a great job in relighting the creative fire under Oasis.
A tremendous effort, with not a dud track on the disk. Highly recommended.

Oasis will forever be known for their earliest work and their laddish outlook on life in the mid-nineties. Don't Believe The Truth is a million miles away from the angry, confident swagger of Definitely Maybe and the commercially successful pop-rock of Morning Glory, but it should still hold a place in every Oasis fan's music collection.

Liam has learned to write a decent tune and Noel's contributions offer a more reflective and wiser stance. Gem and Andy's songs are more reminiscent of early-Oasis than the Gallagher's efforts, but Liam's vocals define them as late-Oasis. The album represents an age group that has grown older with Oasis, one that has settled down, started families and become increasingly mellow.

Musically the songs are still classic Oasis in style, but perhaps only Let There Be Love offers the anthemic chorus most would normally associate with the band. Singles Lyla and The Importance Of Being Idle reflect how much Oasis have changed since the mid-nineties, but the catchy melody is still there and songs like Part Of The Queue and Guess God Thinks I'm Abel indicate Oasis still have a musical future.

The album is never going to make any all-time top lists, but it is one of those albums that you will put on in a couple of years time and think I cannot believe I did not listen to it more than I did. A solid 7/10.

Now, I hate those folks in these reviews that either just bash the album or claim it's the greatest thing since sliced bread, so, I'm not going to be one. BUT reviewing this album it's hard not to eulogize it.
I'll start by saying that the Gallagher brothers have been (justifiably) accused of being stuck in the summers of 1995-6 and unable to move on, and I for one never quite liked that stuff anyway. This album however is totally eclectic with a whole bunch of different writers and styles - not just the Noel G show for once. Having said that, Noel's The Importance of Being Idle is probably the strongest song on the album and is something to look forward to in the first half and pushes the rest of the material along in the second half. Also the last track (an unsual Noel and Liam duet) is awesomely tender and quite moving, considering it comes from the kings of the sing-a-long.
Yea, I dig it and it's well worth a listen... especially if you're not a fan of the G chord driven drivel Oasis have been putting out for the last 10 years since WTSMG.

Don't Believe The Truth.
Firstly, its not as good as 'Definitely Maybe' or 'What's The Story (Morning Glory)' but if you set your sights for every Oasis album that high, then you are preparing yourself for a fall. I would say it falls into the 3rd best album slot, which is by no means a bad thing. If you review it individually, away from the afore mentioned albums, it is a very good album indeed.
Turn Up The Sun - Cracking opening track, starts off softly (and reminds me of Coldplay or the Stereophonics), then kicks into an excellent rock tune. The lyrics are great, and I love the whole concept. A classic gig track I think.
Mucky Fingers - I love this song. At first the vocals seemed a bit off, however after listening to it a few times I have grown to like them. There is some cool harmonica playing, which sounds excellent, but doesn't interfere with the overall sound of the song. 'A foot-tapper'.
Lyla - 3rd longest track on the album. By no means the best song, I'm sure you've all heard it by now, so I'm going to move on.
Love Like A Bomb - A gentle song, written by Liam. Great relaxing song, also with strong lyrics. The strong point of this song is, for me, the vocals. Liam's excellent vocals give the song something it just wouldn't have otherwise.
The Importance Of Being Idle - I love the lyrics for this song, I think the whole idea you get from lyrics and title alone make the song great, but the music and vocals behind it is also brilliant.
The Meaning Of Soul - One of my favorite album tracks, an instantly catchy number; short, sweet, and to the point. Certainly one of the better Oasis songs of recent times, it is a definite rock song. It has a unique sound given by drumming on a cereal box placed on the snare drum with wooden spoons..
