The best album to come out of Britain since 'Sgt Pepper', this is an awe inspiring album. A real rocker of an album, it contains so many classics that it will blow your mind. With a great songwriter in Noel Gallagher, and a great singer in Liam Gallagher, you can't go wrong. Right through the album, you'll be amazed as to how Noel Gallgher puts his emotions into song, aided by his younger brother's unmistakeable sneering voice.

From the fantastic opener 'Rock n' Roll Star', you know these guys mean business. Following on from the opener and the fun 'Shakermaker', the album goes into one of the bands great highlights - 'Live Forever'. When Liam Gallagher's vocals kick in after the introduction, it'll make you sit up straight. The lyrics are absolutely beautiful, the guitar playing is immense, the vocals are superb... everything about it is just so right! Genius - and only three songs in. 'Up in the Sky' is a great dig at Thatcher's Britain moulded around a happy sounding tune. Try doing that on your debut album, Arctic Monkeys! 'Columbia' is just awesome. Originally an instrumental, 'trippy' lyrics were put in the song. It's a real guitar driven rocker based around three simple chords. It's so good it'll make you want to pick up a guitar even though you don't know how to play one, and play along! 'Supersonic' - the band's first ever single - is an example of how to make a simple tune sound great and 'Bring It On Down' is probably the most aggressive sounding tune on the album, a real adrenaline filled 4 minutes of action. 'Cigarettes and Alcohol' cheekily borrows a riff from T-Rex, and builds a great song out of it while you will also want to be shouting "You've gotta make it happen!" like Liam Gallagher.

Once every so often, a debut album comes along that is so self-assured, so complete in its own self-belief that it takes you along with it. It doesn't even need to be the most accomplished or the most profound.

"Definitely Maybe" sounds like it's very good and it knows it.

From the opening noise of "Rock And Roll Star", it's not shy. Here we discovered the best rock and roll vocalist for a generation and his brother who had an instinctive songwriting ability.

Never mind the short-fall of the others. The drumming is rudimentary, the bass is buried and the rhytmn guitar is workmanlike. But that doesn't seem to matter. They all fall into line behind the force of the songs.

"Live Forever" is brash and emotive and beautiful and definite. "Supersonic" is all arrogant swagger and attitude and sounds perfect. "Bring It On Down" is corrosive punk which works despite some of the worst drumming on a great album ever to have happened. "Slide Away" is stunning and moving. Yeah alright "Digsy's Dinner" is just ok and "Married With Children" might not cut the mustard but they're not bad enough to detract from the quality of this album.

A statement of intent that still sounds essential.

This is a five star album.

However, the sound quality on this new 2014 double album re-master is not a patch on the original CD version.

The definition has been compressed almost out of existence.

It's a great pity that increasingly vinyl re-masters and a number of new releases for that matter, are being produced from highly compressed, bass heavy files.

Great album but the £79 box set is a rip off. You get the 3cd version which can be bought separately, poor sounding double vinyl complete with poor quality packaging, a so called exclusive 7" single which has 2 tracks already on the 3cd version, a rebranded cheap and nasty bag for life and loads of other tat literally thrown into the box. The 2014 remaster of the album is awful but i would recommend the 3cd deluxe set for the extra tracks (the japan version has 2 bonus tracks that arent even in the super deluxe boxset!)
Just avoid the super deluxe set at all costs.

As described by 'TheCunningStunt' on Rateyourmusic.com; -

"It's definitely a landmark album and the whole time that serves as a backdrop around this album is incredibly romanticised and it's a big part of musical history - the arrogance, the swagger, the fighting, the silly outlandish opinions, their media coverage, the rivalry with Blur. It was a fantastic period, and they helped revitalise the British music industry. They were a breath of fresh air. A lot of music publications have talked about the famous 'Oasis swagger', and their attitude - which was fantastic, but pretty irrelevant but they continued to lap it up. Even though they were BIG and had big personalities, you have to look at them musically and ask were they good? And the answer is YES. Underneath all of it, they had some brilliant songs."

10 years has certainly gone quick hasn't it eh? And how better to celebrate it than with a DVD release of the best album of that particular year.
When you pop Disc 1 into your DVD player the album starts playing straightaway.
You now have the interactive options at your fingertips.
All you have to decide is whether to push "UP", "DOWN", "LEFT" or "RIGHT" on your DVD remote.
You will then be treated to either documentary, live or video for that particular track.
Or if you want press "MENU" and you can choose what to view individually.
Also for certain videos you can select "ANGLE", and be treated to another version (promo).
If I may suggest something, I would put the disc in and press "UP" and watch the "documentary" all the way through. (much easier, and flows better.
"Disc Two" involves a number of featurettes, but can be viewed continuously if need be.
I loved this DVD as you can listen to the album as a kind of Bootleg album as well if you so wished.
Anyway here is the tracklisting if you're interested.
1. Rock 'N' Roll Star (from 'Top Of The Pops', September 1994)
2. Shakermaker from ('Naked City', June 1994)
3. Live Forever (from Glastonbury, June 1994)
4. Up In The Sky (from Chicago Metro, October 1994)
5. Columbia (from Hammersmith Palais, December 1994)
6. Supersonic (from 'The Word', March 1994)
7. Bring It On Down (from Gleneagles, February 1994)
8. Cigarettes And Alcohol (from Southampton Guildhall, November 1994)
9. Digsy's Dinner (from Buckley Tivoli, August 1994)
10. Slide Away (from New York Wetlands, July 1994)
