4.0 out of 5 stars .....different? 10 May 2000
Format:Audio CD
Compared to Oasis' earlier albums (Definately Maybe and What's The Story) it's bad. If you want the original Oasis, don't expect much. But on its own, it's a great album.
The best songs on the album are Where Did It All Go Wrong, Roll It Over and Gas Panic. Roll It Over might as well be "Champagne Supernova part II". Where Did It... is another classic Oasis track, a strong tune.
The only ones I'm not keen on are I Can See A Liar and Who Feels Love. I Can See... isn't bad, but it's let down by a lack of variety. Who Feels Love is just a bit strange to me - too far from the original Oasis.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could try harder........ 13 July 2000
Format:Audio CD
Considering that this album was brought to us by Oasis, who brought us some of the most exciting rock 'n' roll of the last decade, this is a bit of a letdown. This is not too say that it is a bad album by any means, but it is certainly no match for 'Definitrly Maybe' or 'Whats the Story....'
There are certainly some standout moments. Gas Panic!' is possibly Oasis' finest song to date, and when Liam sings 'and my family don't seem so familiar/and my enemies all know my name', the listener is taken back to the golden era of Oasis when they seemed untouchable.
Unfortunately, the rest of the album does not live up to this. 'Who feels love?', despite being a blatant Beatles rip off, is pleasant enough, as are 'Put yer money where yer mouth is', first single 'Go Let It Out' and opener f**** in the Bushes'. However, to add to this positive aspect are some really poor moments. Liam's first stab at songwriting is certainly tender and from the heart, but with lyrics such as 'You play with their toys/even though they make noise', he should stick to what he is best at. After Noel's solo foray 'Where did it all go wrong?', the album takes a turn for the worse, and leaves people thinking What if....? Whoever decided to releasd 'Sunday Morning Call' as a single should question their judgment, and 'I can see a liar' and 'Roll it over' are little more than background music.
This is certainly not as terrible as some people have been saying, but it is by no means a classic. It's most glaring omission is the lack of a song such as 'Live Forever, Wonerwall or even (whisper it) Stand by Me. But the signs are promising, and after the low point which was 1997's 'Be Here Now', we can only hope that this positve upwards trend continues.

The problem with Oasis records post WTSMG is that they have a hell of a lot to live up to. The question is will they ever match or better the material on their first two albums? well unfortunately with this album they don't. Even so this is still a very good record and an improvement over Be Here Now. There are some really great songs on this album but then the album is let down by some half arsed album fillers. Best track of all is "Gas Panic" and is one of Noel's best song writing efforts, other standout tracks include the catchy "Go Let It Out" and "Who feels Love". Also Liams effort is not at all bad, maybe slightly sickeningly sweet but a very nice tune nontheless. But it's songs like the dreary "sunday morning call" and the half arsed effort that is "I can see a Liar", that really let this album down, but otherwise this is a very good album even if it does not reach the heights of the first two albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album IS good! 4 Mar 2000
Format:Audio CD
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE! Why has and how can anyone slate this? I have just been out and bought it and have just listened to it, and I couldn't find a single problem with it. The best tracks are "Go Let It Out" which is an obvious single, "Little James" which shows "our kid" CAN write a good song, and "Who Feels Love" which is deceptively brilliant. So what if they sound like The Stone Roses or The Doors or The Beatles or whoever the hell they're supposed to sound like? And why are people putting them down for this? Are they now saying that these bands are no good? The mind boggles. On the whole, a very good album - not their best, mind - well, cos What's The Story is the greatest album ever made - but good nontheless. Definately will be one of the albums of the year. But why only ONE shoulder? and if there is only one shoulder, why is there more than one giant? Again, the mind boggles. BUY THIS ALBUM!

3.0 out of 5 stars Definite Improvement On Last Time... 8 Mar 2000
Format:Audio CD
Well... what can one say, is this the 'New' Oasis, or are they in transition? 'New' material comes in the form of the albums two strongpoints, 'F***in In The Bushes' and 'Go Let It Out'. Evidence of samples gives a new feel and impetus behind the band. Perhaps the band has learnt that stagnant music cannot be revived with overproduction. The unfortunate low points are the Noel Ballads 'Sunday Morning Call' and 'Where Did It All Go Wrong'. Dull and dreary, Gallagher snr. really needs to get his backside in gear, because songs like 'Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is' is basically two different lines repeated but with a couple of words changed now and again. Along with 'I Can See A Liar', however, there is a look back to the 'Sex Beatles' days of 'Definitely Maybe', and rightly so. Overall verdict? Better than 'Be Here Now', could do with better lyrics, and a new direction in the waiting, so the next album should be THE MASTERPIECE.
