Product Description

Amazon.ca

Following a British rock tradition initiated by the Beatles and lovingly inherited by the Jam and the Clash, Oasis is the only band of the CD era to offer fans extra tracks on their singles that are often as good as, if not better than, the hits. Rather than saving his new songs for the next full album, Noel Gallagher prefers immediacy. Thus, this compilation of those various "B-Sides"--many available as nonimports for the first time--works just great as a listening experience, offering metallic rushes ("Acquiesce," "The Swamp Song") and absolute melodic beauty ("Talk Tonight," the marvelous "Rockin' Chair"), while conjuring up the ghosts of Mott the Hoople, T. Rex, the Fab Four, and Slade, although Oasis's "Cum On Feel the Noize" is sadly absent. --Bill Holdship

1.0 out of 5 stars Oasis needs to find their way out of the desert. Oct. 22 2007
By Vader
Format:Audio CD
Looks like Oasis are still lost in the desert and are still trying to find their own identity. Comparing OASIS to one of the greatest groups of all-time is idiocy. The Beatles are one of a kind and are in a class of their own- a class that doesn't have room for the second-rate Oasis. Second-rate I am the walrus. If you ask me, they are still trapped by an iceberg in the Artic. Acquiesce? No thank-you. Oasis and Noel Gallagher are trapped in the desert and they need to find their own formula.

The Masterplan is one of the worst albums to be released in the 90s.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT the Beatles June 23 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
All of you out there who feel Oasis are the 2nd coming of beatles are wrong. Though influenced (and which major rock/pop band isnt) by the beatles, Oasis stands for evrything the beatles didnt. Rocking Chair, Listen Up, Going Nowhere, Fade Away, Stay Young, Half the world away, All great songs musically, but if you step inside the lyrics, you find views expressed formally in punk rock. Like wanting to be great in a town where average is expected. These kids from Manchester hated the town, had a poor childhood, and found that there only outlet to their depressing lives was music. As heard in Fade Away- "While we're living, the dreams we have as children fade away." Perfect. Buy the album while theres some left.

By Naner

Oasis' true power has always been showcased in their B-Sides being just as good, and often better than their A-Side. The vocals alternate between Liam and Noel Gallagher, which helps keep this album fresh. Besides a few worthy titles being missed out on this disc, such as 'Its Better People' and 'D'yer Wanna Be A Spaceman', 'The Masterplan' is superb.
The first five tracks of this album are the album's best highlight, with the mega anthem 'Acquiese' starting off the pack. 'Underneath The Sky' is an overlooked piece, with a wonderful melody and piano bridge. 'Talk Tonight' is what acoustic concert-goers long for in it's beauty, while 'Going Nowhere' feeds your dreams of escaping your dead end town. 'Fade Away' has a massive kick of electric guitars and riffs, accompanied by a sneering Liam vocal.
Unfortunetly, the one low point in this disc is the following two tracks. 'The Swamp Song' is decent, but doesn't belong with such gems as the tracks before. And despite many Oasis fans claiming otherwise, 'I Am The Walrus' is by far the worst song Oasis have ever recorded, much less their worst cover. The aural quality is horrible, and it's one of the few times that Liam's vocals leave something to be desired. Luckily for you, you have the power to skip to 'Listen Up'
Ah, 'Listen Up'. Lovely opening riff, even better melody. The epic of the album, filling you with the pride that only Oasis can. 'Rockin Chair' and 'Half The World Away' are two more acoustic sparks that show Noel's power as a massive guitarist/songwriter. '(It's Good) To Be Free' is decent track perfect to sing along with. 'Stay Young' is loud and fun while 'Headshrinker' knocks your head off with its power.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remember When? April 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
Oasis is the only recent British rock band to make an impact in America, if you don't account for groups like The Corrs. Also The Progidy. The horrible musical decade of the 1980s came and went, and we were left with a bunch of arrogant baggy bands from Manchester that nobody really wanted to like. Then Nirvana happened. As we were all doing figurative heroin in tribute to Kurt, finally Suede and Pulp came and took the UK by storm, while here, we where nodding off after Kurt's death. Then came Blur, Radiohead, The Verve, and finally Oasis, what we always wanted. These were songs to get excited to and be inspired. No self-indulgent naval gazing. All about getting high, driving in a jaguar, feeling the sunshine, having an E.... Whatever. Definitely maybe. Noel Gallagher was the best songwriter since (insert name here). Liam was a god and the best frontman since.... Ian Brown!!! Noel was into The Beatles, The Jam, and Bacharach (?). Take a commercial or a Marc Bolan rift and there you have a great song. Number one, mate! For two albums, Oasis were the best, the greatest, and deserving of all our attention (now being spent on Monica Lewinsky!). But then came Be Here Now. Even those who were life-long Oasis fans, had to admit that OK Computer was a fine album. But all along we knew that Noel's B-sides were better than Blur's entire pretensious output. Now all us Oasis fans can walk down the street with a fist in the air, and a copy of The Masterplan in the other. We know damnit! The cover has a picture of Noel as a boy telling a bunch of music professors how to write a song. With the exception of "Swamp Song" and a Beatles cover, this album is nigh perfect. It rocks and has the rightgeous tunes that makes me forget how painful it was to listen to Be Here Now with a straight face.

3.0 out of 5 stars Impressive Collection of B-Sides April 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
The album sleeve says that the band "believe a B-side is no excuse not to care," and they mean it. Most B-sides are B-sides for a reason (read: they suck), but Oasis manage to come up with something special, even on their second-rate stuff. The album opens up strong with "Acquiesce," an impressive number that combines both Gallaghers' vocal talents (Liam sings the verses, Noel the chorus). Two tracks later the song "Talk Tonight" reminds you why you fell in love with Oasis in the first place with its shades of "Cast No Shadow". The album also includes a live version of "I Am the Walrus"--a perennial favorite in their shows--which should satisfy those dying to have it on an album. The album eventually degenerates to the point where the songs are merely tolerable by the end, but the first half is solid, and overall it's not bad for a bunch of B-sides.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a piece of work.
I will never understand why this songs were b-sides. Aren't b-sides supposed to be covers and experimental stuff? This songs are..art, in the purest meaning of the word. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars The Rutles
Naaah, I'll have to pass on this one. Neil Innes writes much better Beatle songs then these guys. At least he realized what he was doing was a joke.

At the peak of their power, even Oasis' B-Sides were better than most bands A-Sides. That renders "The Masterplan" essential. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars I give 'em a Milky Way rating (infinity stars!!!)
First off, I've been a fan since I was 10 years old. And frankly, 10-year-olds know their music. I can listen to this album straight through, hum every chord, and sing every song... Read more

Oasis released a truckload of EP/45's in the UK but because of Epic's lousy promotion of the band, USA fans never got a chance to hear these B-sides. Read more
