Product Description

OASIS Stop The Clocks (2006 UK limited Special Edition 3-disc set comprised of a retrospective 2-CD album set which draws together 18 tracks which have been painstakingly chosen by the band from 12 years of multi-platinum albums number 1 singles instantly familiar B-sides and album recordings plus Bonus All Region PAL DVD containing previously unreleased Lock The Box interview with Noel & Liam live performances of Fade Away & Champagne Supernova plus Lord Dont SlowMe Down film trailer; presented in fold-out digipak sleeve housed in sealed card slipcase complete with a 32-page deluxe booklet & artwork by the legendary Peter Blake)


Terrace anthem heroes or rock plagiarists: how will history judge Oasis? Well, if a band's Greatest Hits is their dispatch to the ages, Stop The Clocks -- a two CD collection that spans the ins and outs of their career from debut single "Supersonic" to 2005's sixth studio album Don't Believe The Truth - suggests that whether you believe they lost their way in a blizzard of cocaine around the time of 1997's Be Here Now or put their first foot wrong the day Liam first put crayon to paper as lyricist -- at their best they're quite simply at the top of their game. First up, a run-through the early stuff: band manifesto "Rock'n'Roll Star', their first chart-topper "Some Might Say", and its B-side, the acoustic, Noel-sung "Talk Tonight". In such context, later efforts like "Lyla" and "Go Let It Out" lack the obvious hunger of what came before, but they demonstrate exactly why Oasis got as huge as they did: their affinity for the stomping, Slade-derived swagger and runway-width choruses just perfect for filling stadiums and football fields. Fans who shelled out for Oasis' B-sides compilation The Masterplan might feel mugged by the decision to reprise four tracks here, but a genuine Oasis Best Of wouldn’t seriously work without the presence of "Acquiesce". Live forever? These songs just might. --Louis Pattison

I'd heard Noel do a few interviews before this album was released and it brought the choices of some of the tracks into perspective. He explained like many people he got into The Beatles by listening to the Red & Blue 62-66, 67- 70 double albums (me included). Because the record company put the thumbscrews on to release a greatest hits he thought it'd be better to give a broad review of what he considered the bands best songs and what would make up a good concert set list. This is what Stop the clocks really is a double CD of what a great Oasis gig would be like.

It's true that a lot of the songs feature on either Definitely Maybe or Morning Glory but when you listen back to those albums they do stand above the likes of Be Here Now or Standing on the Shoulders of Giants. Songs like Rock N' Roll Star, Slide Away, Morning Glory and Champagne Supernova may not have been single but their always highlights of going to see Oasis live. As for putting some B Sides on there you could put The Masterplan and Acquiesce on any of the albums and think they were the singles from the album.

It's true I do miss some of my own personal favourites like D'you know what I mean? and Stop Crying Your Heart Out but there are 18 quality tunes on there which make up for it. How many bands release paint by numbers greatest hits not many do it this way which is part of what makes Oasis the best band of a great era.

The bonus DVD is well worth the extra money. The 40 minute interview with Liam and Noel (well mainly Noel) is full of the kind of insight that makes the definitely maybe DVD a great watch. My personal favourite part is Champagne Supernova live at Knebworth with John Squire as it brings together parts of the two greatest Manchester bands of all time.

Oasis have recently on their web site informed which songs are included on this release. For those thinking this is the definite Oasis singles collection, take a look at the songs NOT included (highest U.K. chart position):

Shakermaker #11

Whatever #3

Roll With It #2

D'You Know What I Mean #1

Stand By Me #2

All Around The World #1

Who Feels Love? #4

Sunday Morning Call #4

The Hindu Times #1

Stop Crying Your Heart Out #2

Little By Little #2

She Is Love #2

Let There Be Love #2

Their web site states: The tracks as chosen by the band themselves - the songs they believe encapsulate their remarkable career to date. For many though, omitting all these tracks (no less than 3 number one hits) is rather excessive. Actually, this track list would make most bands proud of their achievement. Usually when tracks are omitted on such greatest hits compilations, those are one or two songs the band just simply hate (case in point is the recent R.E.M. In Time compilation which skips Shiny Happy People) or more often minor hits or known album tracks.

This is not to say that the songs on this compilation are not superb, they are. There are simply so many left, including Whatever which has only been available as a single. This begs the question, why is there not a double CD version of this release? Well, actually this seems to be a double CD release with simply very few songs on each CD compared to the compilation norm.

Picking the best Oasis tracks to fit into a top 18 is a monumental task, one which hasn't really been achieved on Stop the Clocks as Sony are only really putting this out there to cash in on the band since they decided not to sign a new record deal.

we could argue all day about why All Around the World or The Hindu Times isn't on the tracklisting, and why be here now was overlooked completley, but the fact of the matter is that this isn't really for the hardcore fan who knows that strange thing is the only track from the original demo tape to not make it as a properly released song, or that it's a crime might actually be better than let there be love. But instead it is aimed at the person in the street who loves wonderwall, and the rest of (whats the story) morning glory, but thats about it. This collection is made with them in mind to get it and then be blown away by slide away or acquiesce, songs which any other band would have made there careers on.

so, if you're a hardcore fan with 8 different versions of live forever on itunes, then you may want this for the extras, but if you're the caual oasis fan who can't tell which one is noel and which one is liam, but you're scared of both of their eyebrows, then this could be the greatest introduction to the rock and roll stars that are oasis

This is the third compilation from Oasis, following on from the "Familiar to Millions" live album and earlier "Masterplan" B-sides release. Those hoping for a traditional greatest hits collection this time round will be disappointed, "Stop The Clocks" is instead a selection of live favourites in studio form, so we get ten singles, four B-sides (all included on the earlier "Masterplan") and four album tracks (culled from the bands first two albums). Unfortunately this decision has seen no less than eleven hit singles jettisoned into pop-genius orbit like so much unwanted flotsam; "Shakermaker", "Whatever", "Roll With It", "D' Ya Know What I Mean", "Stand By Me", "All Around The World", "Little by Little" and "Stop Crying Your Heart Out" are no where to be found. How many bands could even consider dumping songs of this standard? Noel is on record as saying that he doesn't want to put out a true hits album until the band has run its course so you can understand the reasoning behind the approach but I have to query the actual selection; there is no doubting that every track here is an absolute peach but those fans who have the first two albums (surely everyone) will already have 10 of the 18 tracks included here. Perhaps I'm missing the point though; maybe this just presents a "way in" for those with only a passing interest in Oasis, or to those who were originally unwilling to be swept up in the - completely justified - hype first time around. If you're one of these people you are in for a treat; this is truly indispensable stuff, the songs here are full of life affirming lyrics, irresistible swagger and above all undeniable beauty. It's a great introduction to a band whose music will live on for generations. It'll send a shiver up your spine.
