This is a great, loud, catchy rock song. It has everything that is good about Oasis packed into three minutes of energetic guitar riffs and Liam Gallaghers trademark snarling vocals ! If it had been released in the mid nineties EVERYONE would've been 'mad fer it !', it is 2002 though and plenty of people will tell you Oasis are all over, don't believe them, music needs more bands like Oasis and less Gareth Gates/Will Young's right now, so do everyone a favour and buy this !

The first single from planet OASIS in over two years is finally released and sports the title "The Hindu Times". Mmmm, strange name, I hear you say. Well yeah it is. It is also two words that aren't mentioned once in the lyrics to the song. There's one verse repeated verbatim and the same goes for the chorus.
But hang on. I'm making it sound like the first Noel Gallagher song to be heard in over two years is a dog. Well, you'd be very wrong. "The Hindu Times" is 3 minutes of unabashed British rock and roll in the best sense of the word.
If you're a fan of Oasis, this song will make you believe that "Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants" never happened. Oasis have (thankfully) done away with the moaning rock star angst of their previous efort and have aimed squarely for the jugular with a song that sounds like you think you've heard it before. After one listening, it's in your skull and it wont leave for love nor money.
It has all the hallmarks of the classic Oasis track. It's loud, it's angry, it's lyrics mean practically nothing. There's a riff going through it thats so simple it makes you wonder why you never thought of it before.
In short "The Hindu Times" is the greatest comeback single EVER released by any band EVER. If you thought Oasis were dead and buried, listen to the track and believe, ONCE AGAIN, in the greatest animal ever produced by Great Britain.
O-A-S-I-S

I really do start to feel pretty old when I talk about Oasis. There isn't another band that I can think of which make me go all misty eyed and start going on about 'the good old days' quite so much, but back in 1994 when "Definitely Maybe" exploded and pretty much took over my life (sad to admit, but I if I could have nicked Liam's look convincingly then I would have) Oasis were the greatest rock and roll band around and helped a number of other British band to flourish in their slip stream.
However, by the time "Be Here Now" arrived in all of its over blown, stomach churning, intolerable pomp the wheels had then spectacularly fallen of this once great band. Within months they went from meaning everything to meaning absolutely nothing at all. After a spectacular ascent, fuelled by storming tunes, great gigs and unbelievable attitude, they were suddenly heading back down to earth - and when the plodding, introspective pile of nothing that was "Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants" arrived with its terribly muted fanfare (even Liam's claims of its greatness sounded hollow and insincere) I even felt ashamed to have once been a fan. Oasis promised a great deal and had eventually become a sham and tabloid fodder for the hungry red tops. Yawn.
Nail suitably in coffin then. Except to my complete surprise they've come back with this fantastic, snarling single and some equally killer B-sides! As soon as that riff kicks in it's like the spirit and the balls that engulfed their debut has woken up hungry and wants to set a few wrongs to right.

So, Oasis finally get around to releasing another long-awaited single...
Let's face it, the music scene needs someone like Oasis around. There has been a MASSIVE gap since Brit Pop faded away in the 1990s, and I'm sure I'm not the only one to miss it!
Thankfully Oasis return with their characteristic swagger to give us 'The Hindu Times'. The song is designed to be quite simplistic and catchy witout being mundane (as 'Go Let It Out' could be described).
In short it's a happy-go-madferit song. A Do-what-the-hell-you-like tune, in which case being similar in approach to 'Roll With It' and 'Supersonic'.
True, it's not a classic, but it marks a welcome return for Oasis fans to a Definitely Maybe style approach. It seems that Noel took notice of his brother 18 months ago in Wembley stadium. Go buy it. Rock N Roll returns in the face of a plastic music industry made up of teenage dolls and nursery-rhyme songs.
Oasis, may you Live Forever.
Amen.

With a 10th Anniversary tour under their belts, Oasis release their first single written and recorded by the new Oasis line up.
The Hindu Times is a back to basics rock 'n' roll record, crunching guitars and snarling vocals wrapping around a simple, straightforward melodic hook. BUT, don't be fooled into thinking this is a return to the Definitely Maybe era - this is a slicker and more mature production than anything from the eponymous debut album, and some may argue, as a result it lacks the edge and charm of some of those tracks - indeed it pales into insignificance when compared to the likes of Live Forever or Slide Away and the lyrics lack any real originality or meaning "in and out my brain, running through my vein" isn't a Gallagher classic. However, it's still good, old fashioned feel good Rock'n'Roll song - stuff to sing along to in the pub - LOUDLY
