great album!, 8. Mai 2005
I know ex-drummer Alan White was fired due to him leaking the last Oasis album onto the internet, but that didn't stop me listening to this one when I tracked it down on the net. A peek at the new album was too good to resist :) Was it worth it? Definitely...
Most people always refer back to the first (two) albums. Why? They were made made near enough 10 years ago. They were right for that time, but when Definitely Maybe would come out now I'm sure it'll get panned as well. It was right for that time, but tracks like Cigarettes and Alcohol (classic as it is) will not be accepted nowadays. People listen to it and remember the good old times, it'll be unfair to compare every Oasis album or single to that time. The band has moved on... and how.
The two "new" members are far better musicians than Guigsy and Bonehead and add a lot to the new sound. Is it that new? Yes and no. Oasis will always be Oasis. They sound a certain way and that will never change. Like Noel says: If you want different music, start a band yourself and make that music. Stop demanding change from Oasis, we're not f***king U2!
Then again, what they have produced here is a new and fresh sounding sounding album. A nice mix of classic Oasis (Turn up the Sun, Lyla) and some genuinely new ground for the lads (Importance of Being Idle, Mucky Fingers, Part of the Queue). Liam's songwriting has improved yet again and it's very nice to hear the brothers singing a song together again (Let There Be Love), the first time since Acquiesce I believe...
Classic as they might be, forget the first two albums. See "Don't Believe The Truth" as an independent record which, in a time of plastic do-it-yourself choreographed music, will surprise you. I would go as far as to say that it is some of the best work they have done. Play it loud and then very loud... you are listening to a new classic.
