With classic tracks like "Wonderwall", "Live Forever" and "Don't Look Back In Anger", Oasis are one of the biggest British bands in history. 6 successful studio albums later, Oasis has been and still is a revered and prolific reference for indie guitar music around the world and are one of the very few bands that have achieved both critical acclaim and commercial success. They have sold more than 50 million records worldwide, and have had eight UK number-one singles. Dig Out Your Soul is the seventh studio album from the band and is preceded by the highly anticipated first single 'The Shock of The Lightning'. Oasis is back once again to prove that they are not just only the biggest British band of the past decade, but will remind the world that they are and will be around for the next decade putting out another great rock record.

Just got the double 45rpm vinyl reissue of this classic. It's the second Oasis LP that I get on 45rpm that wasn't listed as so on the site, and I think that's important, because they do sound better to 33 1/3 LPs. Not a lot to say about the music in it - I am a big Oasis fan and this is a brilliant effort from the lads.
1.Bag it up- Great opener, rocker track with catchy hooks. The guitar playing on this song is awesome! One of my favorites from this album.
2.The Turning- Another rocker that almost follows the first track in style. Little longer with sierns at the end.
3.Waiting for the Rapture- This song rocks! Has a grungy-rocker feel to it and Noel's vocals fit this song perfectly.
4.The Shock of Lightning- The first single is a hit. Fast, exciting, and there are many parts that have catchy hooks. Can you believe this song was written really fast and turned out to be this good?
5.I'm Outta' Time- One of the best from the album. Great lyrics and melody for this rock ballad.
6.Get Off Your High Horse Lady- Has a bluesy feel to it along with stomping and hands clapping in the background. Good guitar work, but this isn't one of my favorites. Fades with footsteps and the sounds of the beach/nature.
7.Falling Down- Another soft ballad that ends on a powerful note. This one is a favorite.
8.To be Where There's Life- Simple melody, catchy with a classic feel to it. A little eastern-style in the background (especially in the opening). Another favorite of mine.
9.Ain't Got Nothing- Another good rocker song that has some shouting in the background half-way through. Worth the listen.
10.The Nature of Reality- Has a bluesy feel to it and the guitar playing again is awesome! Fine vocals.
11.Soldier on- End the album on good note, the synth adds to the booming vocals. Another favorite.
5-star rating, an excellent album that was worth the wait. Recommended for all you fans and rockers out there. This album isn't "Definite Maybe" or "What's the story morning glory(?)" so quit trying to compare the two to this album.
And though Oasis and XTC are not very much alike, like XTC, Oasis has matured and broadened their sound and their songwriting over the years. Their songs are much more cleverly layed out. Their musicality is more sonically sophisticated. In this sense, they are following a path perhaps originally layed down by The Beatles, but followed by a number of wonderful British bands who proved over the years that they were much more than just the muscial adrenaline of their youth. I have to admit here, that as a youth, I was "disappointed" with the departure the Beatles were taking with Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. This wasn't the straight up rock n' roll band I had fallen in love with and these new sounds The Beatles were making just didn't do it for me at that time.
Well, I'm not comparing "Dig Out Your Soul" with "Sgt. Pepper," but I do think the analogy to the general outcry of disappointed Oasis fans rings true here. Personally, I absolutely loved "Don't Believe The Truth." Finally, I could hear the Beatles influence that everyone had been talking about in Oasis for so long. But for me, that record was like an homage to The Beatles, not a rip off. Though I can't say I like it quite as much, after afew listens, "Dig Out Your Soul" picks up right where "Don't Believe The Truth" left off, but without quite as much of the Beatle derivative in it. They've gone through a lot of changes, and have made some lackluster records. But for my money, Oasis is now a ripened band that is for real over the long haul. And you don't find hardly any of them any more. This record is highly recommended -- and so is this band.
