2.0 out of 5 stars A long and boring dissappointment, 28 April 2013
By 
This review is from: Be Here Now (Audio CD)
According to the hype at the time, following on from "Whats the Story Morning Glory", 21st August 1997 was the day that the best album ever made was to be released and everyone should remember where they were as a result.
What we had was one of the biggest anti-climax's and let downs in modern musical history. It sounds like Oasis wanted to find a middle ground between the edgy "Definately Maybe" and the softer "Morning Glory" and ended up with something that sounds like it didn't know what to be, that is overlong, tedious and boring.
So, why 2 stars not 1? Well there a couple of not so bad songs on it "Stand By Me" and "The Girl In The Dirty Skirt". Maybe if some of the slightly better songs were moved onto other albums, then individually there maybe some that might grow on you.
Looking at the notes and track list for the 2006 compilation "Stop The Clocks", you note that there are no songs from this album featured and that the album barely gets a mention other than to note that retrospectively Noel felt that the album was rushed. I can't decide if this is an understated, self criticism in the wake of the dissappointment, or pinpoints exactly what went wrong here.
Listening to it the first time in ages, in order to write this review it's not any better than I remember it, not that I could remember a single song from it. Not being able to remember a single song from it probably says all anyone needs to know, if there is anyone out there looking to buy this.
The CD artwork is quite interesting though.
