Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

4.0 out of 5 stars A wake up call to the world Nov. 23 2000
Format:Audio CD
Oasis' debut album and heralded the invasion of "Brit-pop" in the U.S, though the rowdy boys were much more than simple pop.They combined the songwriting of the Beatles and the swagger and arrogance of the Sex Pistols.Many insults have been thrown at the band for ripping off the Beatles but that is so far off base it's laughable. Other then their admitted admiration of the band (and a few references in their lyrics) there are no other comparisons.With the all knowing "Rock 'n' Roll Star", Liam sings as if he could predict the future. He was dead on as Oasis eventually became one of the biggest bands of the 90's.My favorite happens to be "Columbia" with it's infectious groove and catchy chorus (of which Noel was particularly good at) "I can't tell you the way I feel because the way I feel is oh so new to me." That's how I felt when I first heard the track. The live version is faster paced.However the songwriting gem is probably "Live Forever". I always took it as Noel talking to an idol of his (maybe John Lennon) and what he'd always wanted to say to him and now that he had become famous as well, "You and I are gonna Live Forever." One of the few guitar solos in a rock song that make me a bit sad. A great tribute song......for whomever."Bring It On Down" stands as Noel's take on the class war (upper vs lower that is.) You could almost take it as an anthem FOR the working class people, "You're the outcasts, you're the underclass but you don't care 'cuz you're living fast!" It reminds me of Queen's "Sheer Heart Attack" with it's deafening rhythm section and punk leanings. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Start for a Great Band Nov. 22 2000
Format:Audio CD
In the UK, "Definitely Maybe" was the biggest selling debut album of all-time. Here in the US, the album wasn't nearly as successful, but that doesn't mean it isn't a great album. Quite the contrary, "Definitely Maybe" is the album that launched Oasis into superstardom. Though US fans are more familiar with their second album, "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" and its mega-hits "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova", "Definitely Maybe" is certainly worth a listen from anyone who liked "Morning Glory" even a little bit. The album's most successful single, "Live Forever", is a timeless classic. This song contains brilliantly uplifting lyrics, an very unique melody, and superb vocal performances by the brothers Gallagher. This song ranks among my favorite Oasis songs of all-time. Other standout tracks include "Slide Away", a "sort-of ballad" containing outstanding lyrics and a blistering vocal performance from Liam Gallagher. This track has an incredibly catchy chorus, but the layers of electric guitars that enrapture it make it hard to call this song a traditional ballad. "Cigarettes and Alcohol" is a full-on rock and roll track with a great melody and awesome guitar riffs. If you can get past the morally deplorable lyrics you'll find this song to be the best rock song on the album. "Rock and Roll Star" is another great rock song on this album, and its lyrics are much more insightful than those of "Cigarettes and Alcohol". Though "Cigarettes and Alcohol" is a catchier tune, "Rock and Roll Star" is clearly the winner in the lyrics department. It's just classic Oasis rock and roll. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Definately YES! April 30 2005
By Shane
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a Hit? Maybe... April 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars the next great Manc band after the Stone Roses
It seems like very ten years or so some band leads the charge from Britain.
In '77 it was the Sex Pistols. In '85 it was the Stone Roses. In '94 it was Oasis. Read more

Buy it, it's an absolutely üge album. If you liked this album, you should definately check out the band Driftwood, a band from Edmonton Alberta.
