Product Description

Product Description

With the swaggering chords of the opening "Rock'N'Roll Star," Oasis announced that big, brash Brit rock was here to stay--at least for a few years. They wore their rock & roll with an angry young sneer, a Mancunian petulance wedded to a vision of cathartic release. Their supersonic two-guitar attack took them "Up in the Sky," where they would "Live Forever" or burn out in a blaze of alcoholic glory. Noel Gallagher's songs weren't subtle--or shy of overt plagiarism--but, spat out in the Lennonesque snarl of little brother Liam, they took on a venomous power that had millions of young Brits taking them at their own arrogant word. In the U.S., meanwhile, the response was more Maybe than Definitely. --Barney Hoskyns

This is the best album from Oasis and what a hot first album it is. Not too many bands have earned this kind of debut other than the current release from Flannelmouth called "Rain Inside". Both are raw, stylish and tend to ignite a great sense of coolness. In any case, the killer tracks in my opinion are "Live Forever" and "Supersonic". They are going to tour with Kasabian soon and wow, add Flannelmouth to the agenda and were all in heaven at least for one night. This album is for Oasis collectors.

One of the best albums of the 90's by far, will it change your life? Nope. But you can't argue the fact that this album is solid from note one. The Lp Re-issue is fantastic, 180 Gram vinyl (2 slabs of wax) & thick cardboard outer sleeve with upgraded linear notes. Great addition to anyone collecting classic rock & pop......add this to your collection.....and do it quick before it goes out of print "Again".....you'll pay dearly later.

With this album Oasis made British rock n roll cool again. After the demise of fellow Mancs, The Stone Roses, the British rock scene grew stale. Definitely Maybe reignited it with cocksure arrogance accompanied with a pop friendly beat and rip roaring anthems. The working class had a band to answer "student" groups like Radiohead. Living in the "black economy", Oasis gave the rest of the world a glimpse into their lives much like Gangsta Rap gave white America a glimpse of inner city life. Songs like "Bring it on Down", "Supersonic", and "Cigarettes and Alcohol" spoke of a drug fueled existence. While "Rock N Roll Star" showed their self assured attitude. "Live Forever" is the stand out track and sums up the whole Brit Pop period so much so it was chosen as the title for a movie on the period. Noel Gallagher writes the songs but vocalist Liam Gallagher takes it and makes it his own, he could be the Ronald Reagan of 90's music scene. One of the best rock albums of all time I highly recommend it for any serious music fan.

Liam Gallagher sneered 'I'm a rock and roll star', Noel Gallagher gloated that Oasis were the best band in the world. Both were so convincing, we all believed them. The sheer audacity of the Gallagher brothers to self-proclaim themselves as rock's kingpins shook the very foundations of the music industry in the mid 90's. The stage was set, Oasis had arrived with a loud bang. 'Definitely Maybe' was to complete what the Stone Roses had only managed in the UK, hard-edged sons of Manchester unleashing rock and roll fury on the music world. Their debut is ear-piercing, brazen, and seeping with arrogance, hailing upon the spirit of the rock gods for a pure and distilled brand of rock and roll. Noel Gallagher and Bonehead sets the mood with brash lead/rhythm guitar-riffs, equal parts classic rock, glam, and garage-rock, making for a raw crunchy guitar wall-of-sound. Just like crackling thunder, primal and spine-chilling, powerful yet jolting. But at the sametime non-threatening and palatable, arms held high and swaying, a tribute to rock's icons, a homage to jukebox anthems, a collective call to arms for voices raised in song. Liam's vocals are like some swashbuckling rogue, more swagger than substance, more attitude than emotion, self-assured and cocky...which is basically the essence of rock itself. 'Definitely Maybe' is an admirable blend of sheer bloody-mindedness, subtle seduction, and unsettling yet infectious guitar prowess/energy. This CD endures only because rock's flame continues to burn, and every so often, we need a reminder the beast is merely lying dormant waiting to be unleased again.

Definitely Maybe introduced the world to Oasis. Upon its release, the band became huge in their native Britain. Although the album fared well in America, it would be their next album (What's The Story) Morning Glory that would make them superstars here. However, Definitely Maybe is their best work and their most consistent album. Yes, some of their riffs are definitely borrowed from other artists. But it's easy to forget this when their songs are so catchy and irresistible.
Every track here is a winner and the loud, noisy production only adds to the proceedings. "Rock N'Roll Star" starts the album out with a bang, one of the better opening album tracks of recent memory. The tracks "Shakermaker", "Up In The Sky", "Digsy's Diner", and especially "Live Forever" all have great hooks and memorable melodies that stay in your head long after you've heard them. The hard driving "Bring It On Down", the T-Rex soundalike "Cigarettes and Alcohol", and the dirty groove of "Supersonic" sound like they were made for the concert stage. Other strong tracks here include the mid-tempo rockers "Columbia" and "Slide Away", and the acoustic closer "Married With Children" which sounds reminiscent of the Beatles' mid-60's work. If you like great rock n'roll with attitude, you'll enjoy this.

The turn of the year 2004 has been a most difficult one for me upon realizing that a full decade has now passed since the release of Oasis' "Definitely Maybe", an album that literally grabbed me with a chokehold and wouldn't let go until two albums later when the band seemed to show that they were mortals. Highly talented ones, but mortals nonetheless, capable of a daft song here and there.
The lesson of Oasis' career is that the brilliance of their early recordings was largely fueled by youth. And nowhere were they younger than on "Definitely Maybe", naturally. From the general insouciance of "Rock and Roll Star" and guitar fury of "Supersonic" to the youthful pining of "Slide Away", this album showcases the brilliance of the young Oasis - in Noel's not-yet-recycled riffs and Liam's not-yet-fully-sneering voice - and ten years on, it still sounds vital, the hallmark of any enduring rock album. It also, amazingly, seems remarkably innocent despite the obvious thefts from T Rex on "Cigarettes and Alcohol" and the Seekers on "Shakermaker". This is the sound of the death of grunge music, and what a glorious sound that is. This album made me believe in rock and roll again.
"Definitely Maybe" is a keeper, and has officially survived the test of time, even though it brings about a bit of melancholy realizing Oasis will never be so young again. What I wouldn't do to recreate the feeling of hearing "Live Forever" for the first time.
