When this album came out in Britain in '94, it was a sensation, becoming one of the most successful debut albums of all time. America never quite followed suit, preferring to wait for Oasis' second album. So for those of you who are thinking of buying this album because you bought "(What's the Story) Morning Glory" and loved it, I'm here to tell you that the two albums are almost nothing alike. On "Definitey Maybe" Oasis have enjoyable songs, but a lot of the enjoyment comes from the fact that A) the riffs are stolen (like the hijacked T. Rex riff on "Cigarettes and Alcohol"); B) the songs are silly ("Married With Children"); C) the titles are somewhat unusual ("Shakermaker," "Digsy's Diner"). The songwriting is also not nearly as refined; this is Noel Gallagher's "genius in training" album. "Supersonic" is the best song on the album, and it's a personal favorite of mine, but even that song is pretty weak compared to what he'd come up with later. So, if you're looking for any Oasis album to buy, go for "(What's the Story) Morning Glory". But if you're going through and buying all of Oasis' albums, this is a decent way to start.
