This review is from: (What's The Story) Morning Glory? (Audio CD)
Please note: This review is for the standard original deluxe edition, and not for the recent 2014 re-issue.
With so many reviews (most of which are positive) for Oasis' second album already on here, it seems rather pointless to write another piece about how good the band's second album was. I would just like to add that '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' deserves all of the acclaim that it received and is definitely one of the best albums to come from the 1990s.
With such great song writing and brilliant music, I think that '(What's the Story) Morning Glory?' will be still selling copies in another 20 years time. The tracks were so good that the four singles released in the UK all peaked within the top 2, two of them went to number one.
Very rarely do I say this, but there really isn't a bad track on here (well, apart from the pointless melodies 'Track 6' which is like an interlude, and 'Track 11' which feels like a built up to the next song). 'Roll With It' is a classic, and probably the most widely known song, it is very catchy, 'Wonderwall' is another '90 anthem, which to me is the band's finest hour, with Liam Gallagher's vocals at a peak. Then of course there is 'Don't Look Back in Anger' and 'Champagne Supernova', a mixture of hard-rock with a beautiful melody, which are personal favourites, the latter being the perfect way to finish the album.
Timeless music, and highly recommended!
