Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

With Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants, Oasis--the self-professed "biggest rock & roll band in the world"--continue exploring their fascination with Great British Bands of the late 1960s. Paying homage to your heroes is one thing, but many of Standing On The Shoulder's best moments sound like their icons' worst. However, this is Oasis, and they do manage to pull some stunners out of their hats: "Gas Panic" and "Where Did It All Go Wrong?" demonstrate the command of catchy hooks and epic anthems that made their first two albums--Definitely Maybe and (What's The Story) Morning Glory?--such classics. Elsewhere, their influences are more obvious. The psychedelic "Who Feels Love?" is a perfect example of George Harrison in full Eastern Mystic mode, complete with sitars, tablas and tape-loops. Outright rocker "Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is" has the strut and stomp of vintage Doors or Rolling Stones, but is ultimately let down by its weak songwriting ("Ready or not, come what may/The bets are going down for judgement day"). The most dubious lyrics are saved for the Liam Gallagher-penned "Little James", his paean to paternal love which--perhaps unintentionally--contains some of rock's most laughable couplets ("You live for your toys, even though they make noise"). Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants doesn't represent a major step forward for Oasis, but it is a definite improvement on the band's previous album, Be Here Now. For stronger evidence as to why Oasis is credited with resurrecting Britpop in the late 20th century, newcomers to the band would do well to investigate Definitely Maybe or (What's The Story) Morning Glory?. --Rob Burrow

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars despite the critics 29 Dec 2009

Despite the critics to this album, the tracks are extremely catchy once you have heard them a few times. The true oasis fan will appreciate this album, but it probily wont appeal to the commercial audience.Standing on the Shoulder Of Giants

5.0 out of 5 stars CONTROVERSIAL 24 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
Ok I am gonna be a bit controversial here and excuse the pun in the word play but for me this album is head and shoulders above anything Oasis have done. I think they peaked with this album. Ok so there aren't a bunch of hit singles on here but the songwriting is really strong, they have stripped out a lot of that Mancunian angst in Liam's delivery that was starting to become tiresome and repetitive. The album kicks off with the truly superb F***in In The Bushes ... which is just about the rockiest hookline that the band have ever produced. That is followed by Go Let It Out ... I can't for the life of me understand why this didn't sell in bigger numbers when released as a single. The laconic swirling Who Feels Love follows next, a superb track and I wish Liam sang more tracks in this style. We then trip into good old Oasis style rock and roll with Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is .. which harks back to their earlier sound. Little James is a superb track and you don't need to be an Oasis fan to appreciate that this is just a great piece of work. We then move on to Gas Panic ... a personal favourite from the album that I used to listen to a lot in the car. Where Did It All Go Wrong is a song that wouldn't be out of place on Be Here Now .... its just a great song, well written and well sung by Noel. Noel then features again on Sunday Morning Call and if he ever needed evidence that he could make it on his own, those two tracks are all the proof he needs, it is a great song, with a superb blend of guitars. I Can See A Liar also has a feel of early Oasis but again with less of the angst in Liam's vocal delivery. The album closes with its longest track, Roll It Over and I would say its the only one on the album that retains any sort of hint of a homage to the Beatles. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Only Two Songs Stop This Being Five Stars 7 July 2008
By MDD
Format:Audio CD
It is a real shame. No, I'm not talking about the 'demise of Oasis', but I'm talking about this album. The shame is that it is so underrated as an Oasis album. It doesn't deserve the amount of criticism it received when released.

The thing is with this album is that it is much better than Be Here Now. Although the singles of that album were the best thing about it, the rest of the songs were devoid of any inspiration. However, many of the songs tackle Noel coming off drugs, the big comedown on the heydays in the nineties and even one about Liam's son.

There's no 'Live Forever' or 'Don't Look Back In Anger'. Don't expect any of these sort of stadium anthems because your not going to get any. The lead single 'Go Let It Out' is probably the nearest thing to the big anthem on this album. But that's the thing. The album is not about big anthems. Instead, psychedelia is brought to the fold, and while initially many of the songs may seem dull, give them time because they grow on you. The production is absolutely brilliant and not over produced like Be Here Now. The lyrics are probably the best Oasis have come up with. 'Gas Panic' is genius and is one of the best things I've ever heard from Oasis. Yes, 'Little James' has pretty uninspired lyrics but only for part of it and it is a sweet tune, not the disaster that I'd heard people say it was.

To be honest, there are two songs that are missable. Ironically, it's the two rockers 'Put Your Money Where Yer Mouth Is' and 'I Can See A Liar'. Lyrically dull and musically dull aswell, it is certainly not something that would make it on to 'Definitely Maybe'.

The songs don't hit you like the ones on 'Morning Glory', but they are more slow and hypnotic ones. You can't casually listen to this album, you need to give it its full attention, and if you do that, them I'm sure you'll find the brilliance that I found in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than you may think... 29 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
The album kicks off with possibly the most original Oasis track ever written. 'Fuckin In The Bushes' opening drumbeat means that the album starts off with a bang, aided by some angry shouting, typical of the Gallaghers rock 'n' roll attitude. The lead guitars in the chorus are very effective and the rhythms are excellent. This is a blatent mission statement from Oasis showing that they mean business. The only downside of this track is that the production work is a little shabby, on the one hand making it more ragged and aggressive, but on the other hand taking away some of the quality of the track. However, overall this is another fantastic opening album track from Oasis.
Number 1 single 'Go Let It Out' follows and, whilst it's not the best Oasis single ever released, it is still a great track. Not as powerful as 'D'you Know What I Mean?' but still having the feel-good charm of 'Roll With It' and 'Shakermaker' and containing a classic "ugh" from Liam after the 1st chorus, 'Go Let It Out' builds up so much that it explodes with an crescendo of Liam's amazing vocal and another of Noels fantastic solo's. It may not be 'Live Forever' but don't underestimate 'Go Let It Out', it's a brilliant track.
So far so good. 'Who Feels Love?' is a fantastic psychadelic George Harrison style track. Very spiritual in lyrical content and nice use of backwards guitars. Again, not quite up to the standard of former glories, but we can't keep comparing everything Oasis do to the 'Definitely Maybe' and 'Morning Glory' days. Although it was maybe a bit too bland for radio airplay as a single, this is still a solid track.
'Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is' is the first of the "weaker" tracks.
