Some Might Say

"I'm a little older and its been a few years but I still remember the impact this had when it came out. I was a very young 29 and I felt like I was part of a movement during the summer of 95 that believed in Oasis, that was championing their rise to greatness. It had nothing to do with the hype surrounding them, and there was alot, but for what they were, a truly great rock band riding high on a record for the ages. I think this was the last time that I felt connected musically to something this important. After 15 years I can still listen to this record in its glory, still as powerful and poignant as it was in 95 when it came out. "Definitely Maybe" is also a great album that attracted myself and many to the then brilliant Oasis. Morning Glory blasted Oasis forward into another realm of artistry and equally importantly onto American radio. I agree with many of the reviews here, that this album needs to be listened to in its entirity, rather than as a bunch of songs randomly shuffled around in ones IPOD. What I consider to be the "Epics" on the disc, Wonderwall, Champagne Supernova, Roll With It, Some Might Say, stand on there own no doubt. The stuff thats in the middle is equally brilliant, acting as vital connectors. I love every single song on this album, because like Abbey Road or Exile on Mainstreet, all the songs that are there... are supposed to be there and in order, for a reason, never to be messed around with as downloadable units tossed into someones sea of MP3s. I loved, also, the fact that against considerable odds, Oasis were able to put a signifigant dent in the American market. No British band even came close to making this type of impact and there were some good ones. Saw them play all of both albums at a summer festival in Barrie Ontario, summer of 96 and I felt and still feel that I was witnessing history. Oasis at that time were the biggest and best band on the planet. Unfortunately that would all end a short while later when all the beauty and simplicity went out the window with the pomp and bombast of "Be Here Now" and every other small slice of mediocrity that followed.
Man...they were good and I am glad I was there to witness it all first hand.
The only thing they ever did that comes anywhere near this brilliance is "The Masterplan" (B-Sides and outtakes). A stunning collection of songs that blows everthing else anyone was doing in 98, away. Thats how good they were folks."
