Product Description

Product Description

Fourth studio album by the Mancunian indie-rock act, and the first on their own Big Brother label. Most of the guitar/bass parts on the album were played by Noel Gallagher, as it was recorded at the time of a lineup reshuffle. The singles,'Go Let It Out' and 'Who Feels Love' are included.

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

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.

... but i've loved oasis since day 1, i LOVE the first 2 records, think "be here now" is spotty but brilliant at times, HATE "heathen chemistry", but i actually think THIS is their BEST ALBUM OVERALL .... am i the ONLY ONE who feels this way? i swear: nothing could match the swagger of "maybe" and "morning glory" (and for me personally the joy of doing lines off those CD cases as a young freak while i listened to em!), but sh*t this record has some - a LOT of - killer tunes, and is a REAL progression forward, unlike "heathen" which, despite the presence of one of the 2 geniuses of overlooked but fantastic shoegazers RIDE in attendance, kinda SUCKS?!?!? well that's just my opinion ...

... While most of the songs are nothing like DM or WTSMG, that doesn't imply the songs are terrible. Oasis has taken a different route and they have definitely succeeded. SOTSOG has some exceptionally well written songs, such as Gas Panic! and Roll It Over. The best band in the world continues to be just that by showing they can even make top notch slow, emotional songs.

I had my reservations before buying this cd. If you're reading these reviews, maybe you feel the same. It was rumored to be the weakest of Oasis's career. I'd heard dark reviews of an Oasis gone all "experimental," and the magic of their early years depleted. The ten-second snippets I was allowed to hear on the BMG music club site didn't reassure me, and the title and album cover seemed so pretentious. But I ordered it anyway, trusting the band that had first gotten me interested in Brit rock.
With my expectations properly lowered, you can understand my shock when listening to it for the first time. I'll put it simply: SotSG is amazing. I'm picky in my musical tastes, and there are only a few bands that I'll say make albums good enough to listen to from beginning to end. Normally I have to skip some songs, but Oasis has always made albums great from start to finish. Standing doesn't have the catchy radio singles that made Morning Glory so revered, but it doesn't detract from the album at all. The songs are still excellent.
Oasis will always be a pub band; their albums were made to be blaring in bars, with songs surprising in their simplicity and appeal. If you haven't yet caught the Oasis bug, try out this CD. I still don't like the title, and the band shouldn't have changed their logo, but it's the music that counts, right? The disc is great, great rock n' roll. Moaning over the crummy state of rock music today? Check this band out.

Most die-hard fans of Metallica disappointed when their '96 album Load was released. I think it was because they had thought of Metallica as no more than "thrash metal kings" itself. But Metallica is not just any kind of cartoon character or animal in the zoo. They're only four Human Beings living their own lives just like others. I mean they won't be stuck to their past all their lives. Their profession is not "thrash metal kings" but "musician". So is Oasis'. Most of fans would pick the albums like "Definitely.." or "Morning glory" as their best. I do too. But SOTSOG will be their another classic, in my opinion. A little change in soundmaking adds some edge to their beautiful songwritings. F**kin' in the bushes is very good for intro. Go Let It Out may sound plain, but got much hook on it and one of their best songs without doubt. Who Feels Love? is a touching song too me. It will remind you of a beatle tune "Within You Without You" in part. And Liam's Little James is another touching song. In the opening, Piano and music box-like synth sound go together well. And You encounter the gorgeous "Gas Panic". Needs no word, it's classic. And the following two Noel tracks are very good. The closing track, "Roll it over" is beutiful song putting "Champagne Supernova" in mind. If you get to see their live videos on this album, you'll surely like it. Four Oasis members plus one more guitar and two synths incarnates this album well.
