Product Description

Product Description

2008 reissue. (What's the Story) Morning Glory? is the second album by the UK rockers, Oasis. Originally released in October 1995 in the UK, the album was Oasis' most enduring commercial success, charting at #1 in the UK for 10 weeks and #4 in the U.S. The album has sold over 18 million copies worldwide. It is the third biggest-selling album in UK chart history. Album singles "Some Might Say", "Roll With It", " Wonderwall", and "Don't Look Back in Anger" were hits in the UK. The cover photo was taken on Berwick Street in Soho, a London street known for its independent record shops. The two men on the cover are Sean Rowley (Sean Rowley, a DJ on BBC London 94.9.) and Owen Morris (the album producer for this album).

This big rock candy mountain of an album justifies some if by no means all of the poses and pretentious statements made by Manchester's natural-born rock & roll deities. A dramatic attempt to rekindle the flames of the original British Invasion, Morning Glory rolls 30 years of Britpop tradition into one irresistible (if achingly self-conscious) whole. "Wonderwall" can be read as a Beatles tribute, "Don't Look Back in Anger" feels like a Mott The Hoople anthem and "She's Electric" and "Morning Glory" are chewy pop confections. --Jeff Bateman --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

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. Oasis will most likely continue to release many albums yet (Don't worry the brothers always break up & Make up). This is the defining album for the band and stands the test of time, you will be listening & re-listening to it decades later. 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 vinyl......add this to your collection.....and do it quick before it goes out of print "Again".....you'll pay dearly later (Most likely double or more).

Despite Oasis' big claim to be a much better band than The Beatles (lead singer Liam Gallagher even went as far to verbally attack George Harrison in an interview), as well as proclaiming to be the best band in the world, they have made some excellent, tasty music that's hard not to love. If you can ignore most of the embarrassing (and often laugh-out-loud hilarious) behavior attached to the band's mystique, you may just enjoy their music, too.
_(What's The Story) Morning Glory?_ is a non-stop train of tasty, ear-pleasing rock candy, with that, add in a little bit of swaggering attitude, and you have Oasis' niche. Songwriter (and sometimes, singer) Noel Gallagher has an excellent ear for melody.. even if most of his musings seem to be, more or less, stolen from The Beatles and their British Invasion contemporaries. If you're a music lover who is lamenting the lack of Britpop/British Invasion spin-offs in the popular music pantheon these days, or if you just want some loud, good-old fashioned rock n' roll, look into this album, and some of Oasis' other offerings. That's basically it for this review.

Oasis had a lot to live up to with this album. Their first album is considered by many to be the greatest debut album of all-time. That meant the pressure was on with (What's The Story)Morning Glory? and the guys stepped up. They stepped up and made one of the best albums of all-time.
The songs on this album are awesome. All are penned by Noel Gallagher. This is one of those albums where you will listen to every song on the album. All pretty good, but there are some gems on this album.
"Wonderwall" is the song that everybody knows from Morning Glory. It's the biggest Oasis single to date. It's easy to see why. The guitars are very catchy. The lyrics are fantastic as Noel sings about his relationship with his former girlfriend Meg Matthews. Everybody can relate to the song in some way or another.
"Don't Look Back in Anger" is my favorite track off the album. The song is about looking forward and not dwelling on what could have been or what should have been done. The chorus is simply fantastic. The song is very catchy. This song is always relevant and really is a song everybody should here. Noel displays his vocal talents on this track as well.
"Cast No Shadow is another special song from the album. Everybody has things they wish they could say, but can't find the right words to say. This song is all about that. It's better when the song is sung by Noel, but Liam sings it on the album.
"Some Might Say" is another special song from this album. It was a number one hit in the U.K. It's considered by many to be the best Oasis song. The song really does ask a lot of great philosophical questions. The song has a great chorus and is really catchy.
"Champagne Supernova" was another big hit for the guys.

There's not a flaw on this album, but there's so much more than that. You just have to see for yourself. I love when people misinterpret the Gallagher brother's rants and babbling, it shows how easily mislead people are. These are the same two guys who had a heated argument about the difference between rock and roll mischief and soccer hooliganism. How can you take their "biggest band ever" claim seriously? And feel free to miss the point and write them off as Beatles rip-offs. Mind you, this is just as true about EVERY band that came after 1963.
As for the actual music, there's not a dull moment here. There are two instrumental tracks that combine for less than two minutes, and they are very well placed to give you time to absorb the previous song. I don't know how intentional it is, but that's what happens. "She's Electric" is one of the most charming songs I've ever heard, despite being the same chords as "Digsy's Diner" and "Married With Children" of their previous album. I'd like to see any other band come together and make something this accessible. The true test that only this album could pass: Every single track has at least one part that could be made into an instantly recognizable cell phone ring tone. As depressing as that could be, it's still brilliant.

"...Morning Glory" has consistently been one of my all-time favorite albums due the fact that it is just 'perfection', to say the least. Each and every song has it's own unique identity while tying the entire album together beautifully. I can see, though, by other reviews and such that this album is beginning it's descent into negative criticisms like so many wonderful CDs have to eventually go through. I don't understand what is wrong with genuinely good music...even if it is catchy or even a so-called "chewy pop confection." I think that Oasis did it right with this album, and I will continue to stand behind it. I mean, who can deny that "Wonderwall" was one of the best songs of the nineties? Even listening to it now, I never grow tired of Liam's pleading voice and Noel's guitar surrounding it. I wish that I could pick a favorite on the disc, but I really can't. It's just one of those albums that can make you have a new favorite everytime you give it a listen.
