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

_(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.
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.Read more ›
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.

The quality of the vinyl is poor. Had to use a knife to make the middle hole bigger and found some flaws in the surface of the vinyl. Not Audiophile quality.Published 3 days ago by sean mcdonald
