Sometimes an album is great, but it's impossible to put into words as to why it's great. Is it the tempo? I don't know. Is it the instruments used? I don't know. Is it the lyrics and their possible meanings? I don't know. All I know is that in those situations the album just has that something special about it; that special something that separates the music that is considered "OK" and the music that makes you say "Wow! This is amazing!", and the second album by Oasis, 1995's "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" definitely does the latter.
The album has ten songs on offer (plus a couple of unlisted short tracks, the existence of which is a mystery). Among those songs we have ROLL WITH IT, which is a cracking tune despite losing out to Blur's COUNTRY HOUSE in "The Battle of Britpop" of '95. DON'T LOOK BACK IN ANGER was the first single to show off Noel Gallagher's high quality singing talents and well as further strengthening his status as a great song writer. SOME MIGHT SAY is a loud brash song which helped the band score their first number one single; and then there's the iconic WONDERWALL. The lyrics don't make sense to me, but the tune is something I have a great deal of pleasure in allowing to play through my head again and again.
A couple of songs drag on for a little too long, such as CHAMPAGNE SUPERNOVA even though that one has a relatively good sound. But other than that "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" is an album that I thoroughly enjoyed, and I'm more than happy to give it 5-Stars. Like I said it's impossible to say why it's great. You'll just have to listen to it for yourselves.
