5.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the Critics!, 27 Jun. 2005
This review is from: Don't Believe The Truth (Audio CD)
This is a great album, full of great song writing. This is definately Oasis mark 2 finest hour and in my opinion Oasis's best album since definately maybe, yep in my opinion this surpasses What's the story because this album doesn't have a duff track and WTMG had at least 2! Even my least favourite song A Bell will ring is a really catchy song. This is an album that grows on you, from the mighty Turn up the sun, to the delicate Love like a bomb this album flows like coctails by the pool on a hot summer's day.
This album is not a collection of songs for dicecting on download sites, it's an old fashioned LP, put together in a way that works. Every time I hear it, I want to hear it again. Too many album's these day's are put together without thought and without depth of character. when you listen to the album every song sounds different, from the Velvet Underground inspired Mucky Fingers to Liam's in your face rant on the meaning of soul, this isn't a band who are on the way out as some people want us to believe!
As for the DVD extra, it's hillarious! Forget all those dull Coldplay clones Oasis are a band with personalities, they're interesting and funny to listen to, especially Noel he certainly speaks his mind.
Quality from start to finish, BUY IT NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best album yet!, 14 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Beautifulgarbage (Audio CD)
From the opening track "shut your Mouth" this album bites, grabs you by the neck and says "I'm here listen to me!" What strikes me about this album is a group who know what they are doing, Shirley Manson's voice sounds as beautiful as ever and the production is excellent without feeling over produced. Their is no lack of expirementation on the album as well, it's not just a group wheeling out the same tunes again with differnt lyrics, Garabage are a group knowing what they are best at but willing to change the boundaries everytime they do it. This was never going to be an album where you say "is this really Garbage?" But this is still a very fine album that begs to be listened to again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another class album from the Charlies, 14 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Wonderland (Audio CD)
What can you say? after Us & us only I was not sure how the Charlies were going to follow it, they have followed it by tearing up the book of what you can and can't do. Combineing funky rhythms, phycledelic bass lines, classy hammound organ, a guitar player not afraid to use the rule "less is more" and Tim Burgess using all of his not unimpressive vocal skills, this album reveals more with every listen. It shows their class that they can use the line "I'm a hunk of burning love" on the track "is it in you?" and not make the song sound really tacky! The only track where i think the boys lost the plot was the overpowering sickly track "the man needs to be told" apart from that hickup a brilliant album from one of Britains finest bands.
