CD Reviews

The best single off the Be Here Now album.
Damon Navas-Howard | Santa Rosa, CA USA | 12/29/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Just when I was starting to think the b-sides off of the Be Here Now singles only had one great song("Going Nowhere", "Stay Young") on each single and the other b-sides were average, Oasis release their last single off BHN "All Around The World" and we get a classic Oasis single. "All Around The World"-like "Champagne Supernova" and "The Masterplan"-is an epic over the top glorius piece of music. From its sing along lyrics to its lushious strings to it's top of the peak ending with Liam simply singing "na na na na". "All Around The World" was one of the best songs off of BHN. It is just pure magic that Noel Gallagher holds in his hand. The b-sides on this single are: "The Fame", "Flashbax", and a cover of The Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man". "The Fame" shows us Noel Gallagher's thoughts on fame while Oasis were on the top of the world. The song feautres loud guitars and an upbeat tone that you can even dance to. "Flashbax" transports us from the present moment of Oasis to memory lane. The tune is laid back and is like part 2 of "D'yer Wanna Be A Spaceman?". Last is the cover of The Rolling Stones hit "Street Fighting Man", the track opens with a fight between The Gallagher brothers(How perfect!) and the cover is pure Rolling Stones. They even record the song with the same sound quality as the orginal(The static, vocals etc..). "All Around The World" is an Oasis single essential."
A Must-Have For Fans

"It's a cryin' shame that this is in the "Shame It's Out-of-Print" File, because this is one of the very best maxi-singles from a band that has put out a lot of 'em. In addition to the single itself, there are three non-album tracks, two of them must-have's for fans:

"The Fame," with Noel on vocals, is among the group's very best songs, with the signature rollicking, fuzzing guitars and a sing-a-long, wall-of-sound chorus. I can't believe this track was left off "Be Here Now," but then I'm also not sure what song I'd cut to make room for it. And as much as I love the Rolling Stones, the cover of "Street Fighting Man" may well be better than the original. It is, at the very least, a fantastic, rip-roaring modernization of a classic.

If you're a fan of the Gallaghers & Co. and you don't have this, track it down somewhere. It's worth it."
