Product Description

Amazon.ca

With Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, the self-professed "biggest rock & roll band in the world" continue their exploration of great British rock of the late '60s. Paying homage to heroes is one thing, but many of Standing's best moments sound like their icons' low points. This is Oasis, however, and they do pull some stunners out of their hats. "Gas Panic" and "Where Did It All Go Wrong?" demonstrate the command of catchy hooks and epic anthems that powered their classic first two albums, Definitely Maybe and (What's the Story) Morning Glory? Elsewhere, their influences are more obvious. The psychedelic "Who Feels Love?" is George Harrison in full Eastern mystic mode, complete with sitar, tabla, and tape loops. The rocker "Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is" has the strut and stomp of vintage Doors and Rolling Stones, but is ultimately let down by weak wordplay. Liam Gallagher's "Little James," a paean to paternal love, also contains some laughable couplets ("You live for your toys, even though they make noise"). Still, Standing is a definite improvement over its 1997 predecessor, Be Here Now. For real proof that Oasis resurrected Britpop in the '90s, newcomers would do well to investigate Definitely Maybe and (What's the Story) Morning Glory? --Rob Burrow

1.0 out of 5 stars Is this the same band? March 2 2000
Format:Audio CD
Sadly the answer to that question is a big fat NO! This cd doesn't sound like Oasis, doesn't look like Oasis, it just happens to say Oasis on the cover. What happened to the band you ask, i'll tell you. Two of the band's guitarists, Bonehead and Guigsy, quit. Only Noel, Liam, and Alan White(the drummer) remain. Although I guess they did happen to find a couple of stiffs to replace them. But they sound nothing like they used to. Gone are the crunching guitars and brash vocals. The only song that sounds close to their old stuff is Go Let It Out but, it's not even close to Supersonic or D'Ya Know What I Mean. Everybody complained about Be Here Now (their last album) but at least it was Oasis. I don't understand why they would change so much. I mean even the black and white Oasis logo is gone. What's up with that? One of the reviewers said that these songs reflect the changing face of Oasis, with a darker and more complex personality. What is that supposed to mean? I liked them when they just wrote good rock songs that you could crank up on your stereo. And to all of you who say Oasis is back i'd like to ask you a question. Have you ever heard Definately Maybe, What's the Story, or Be Here Now.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy this one last... June 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ok, do not buy this album as your introduction to the band. For crying out loud get Morning Glory or Heathen Chemistry first. This album was recorded in the midst of turmoil in the band, and only the Gallaghers and Alan White came out the other side (White is now also gone). And it shows. But there are many strong points - The instrumental first track features some fantastic drumming and a guitar riff that is still stuck in my head. Go Let It Out is Noel's singalong genius coming out again, and I love it. The other highlights are Where Did It All Go Wrong and Gas Panic - GP in particular should go down as one of their all time bests. But as an album it feels somewhat average, and you know they can do so much better - they proved it, in fact, with Heathen Chemistry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Standing on shoulders indeed May 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Standing On The Shoulder of Giants has the unfortunate reputation of the Oasis album with no spine. Even though there is a sound byte with cursing in the first track, this album shows a more mellow and contemporary Oasis, a sound that tends to clash against the snarling roar of Definitely Maybe. This did not catch on very well. In fact, one critic pronounced it the worst album of 2000.
In perspective, Standing On The Shoulder of Giants sits in the middle of being an outstanding Oasis album and being a total disappointment. In some ways it hits the mark, and in some ways it misses entirely. This all adds up to a B-.
There are some painfully forgettable tracks such as the Doors rip-off Put Your Money Where Yer Mouth Is, the bland and substanceless I Can See A Liar, and Liam's first recorded original song Little James (a silly aping of Hey Jude). But what's left is gold, such as the Kula Shaker-triggered Who Feels Love. Standing tall is Gas Panic, probably the best track on the album. Noel takes lead vocal on Where Did It All Go Wrong? and Sunday Morning Call (the latter foreshadowing Heathen Chemistry). Giants ends on a soft note with the George Harrison-inspired Roll It Over.
When you add it all up, two-thirds of this album is great Oasis. The rest is just kinda meh (a vocal grunt describing disinterest). But it comes mildly recommended. The b-sides are also worth tracking down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the backlash! May 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
Oasis comes down to Earth after flying sky high with hopes and ambitions in "Be Here Now". "Giants" is sober, but the music is trippy, in a way only Oasis can pull off. "F***kin' In the Bushes is an excellent opener and the album holds steady through the entire playlist. "Go Let It Out" is basic Oasis, "Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is" and "I Can See A Liar" are weak lyrically, but people seem to miss the barrage of music being played behind Liam's words, excellent drumming by Alan White. "Who Feels Love?" "Little James" and "Gas Panic!" are the three very trippy songs. There is a ridiculous sitar bridge in "Love?" and an even more ridiculous mellotron bridge in "Panic!", must hear both. "Little James" is the first song written by Liam on an Oasis album, his lyrics are simple and at the same time heartwarming in his first song. "Where Did It All Go Wrong?" and "Sunday Morning Call" are sung by Noel, and he is at his best in both; very regretful in "Wrong", and even more regretful in "Call", as this whole album is the hangover after "Be Here Now". The album ender is "Roll It Over" and its appeal can equal "Champagne Supernova" at times as they are both similiar songs. Overall, "Giants" is a solid album, all the way through, and the transformation of Oasis into a more grownup band. The music is more intricate and polished than its predecessors as they were all carried by catchy hooks and simple chords. Recommended for anyone with an ear for good music.
