5.0 out of 5 stars best singles band never to be bettered!, 15 Jun 2010
This review is from: Time Flies... 1994-2009 (Audio CD)
Oasis where the beatles of the Britpop era, their songs where easy to understand and tap you feet to , yet whilst not being an albums band and never to better their two defining albums "definitley maybe" and "whats the story? morning glory!" from the later albums they made upto dig your soul there was bound to be the a few singles that people will cherish the most which is evident on this lavish clamshell box set version of time flies by best of highlighting them as a great singles band that alongside the big breakfast and TFI Friday showed what made the 90's a memorable period.

its hard to say which disc is best but i say disc 1 contains their most memorable songs such as "supersonic", "roll with it", "live forever", "wonderwall" and "don't look back in anger".

Disc 2 may be less familiar but does hold some other great songs such as "Lyla", "d'you know what i mean", "the importance of being idle", which would have been better off on disc 1 but disc 3 in this limited box set version which is their final live performance before the gallaghers acrimonious split is like a greatest hits set with none of the filler that will probabley please some of the hard core of Oasis fans as this is a raw, overdub free performance of which we may never see or hear ever again? (watch this space...)

But the added bonus is the DVD of their promotional films which gives this boxset the 5th star whilst the packaging is spot on with the cd's in slip cases and a decent booklet which has a lot of fan tributes under the song titles highlighting their love for a band which other bands like the Kaiser chiefs and Kasabian will never wipe the floor with.

'best singles band never to be bettered!'... may I suggest listening to the album '1' by a little known band called The Beatles, who can also lay claim to the best album band too haha

>disc 3 in this limited box set version which is their final live performance

I thought it was "last recorded show," not their last show.

The Beatles where never a singles band since all their albums had plenty of killer tracks which Oasis did not have many to go by in their albums explains why they had 20+ singles that people will remember more than the other filler in their back catalogue history.

The Smiths were overrated and miserable! Oasis had great songs if not great albums that made listeners feel alive,

Hi Spike,

Does this box set play fine on UK systems? I just noticed it was an import. I'm very interested in buying it.

Cheers

I've now had two copies and neither of them have Champagne Supernova on Disc 2. Was yours OK?
