Product Description

Product Description

Oasis ~ Masterplan

Following a British rock tradition initiated by the Beatles and lovingly inherited by the Jam and the Clash, Oasis is the only band of the CD era to offer fans extra tracks on their singles that are often as good as, if not better than, the hits. Rather than saving his new songs for the next full album, Noel Gallagher prefers immediacy. Thus, this compilation of those various "B-Sides"--many available as nonimports for the first time--works just great as a listening experience, offering metallic rushes ("Acquiesce," "The Swamp Song") and absolute melodic beauty ("Talk Tonight," the marvelous "Rockin' Chair"), while conjuring up the ghosts of Mott the Hoople, T. Rex, the Fab Four, and Slade, although Oasis's "Cum On Feel the Noize" is sadly absent. --Bill Holdship

Oasis' true power has always been showcased in their B-Sides being just as good, and often better than their A-Side. The vocals alternate between Liam and Noel Gallagher, which helps keep this album fresh. Besides a few worthy titles being missed out on this disc, such as 'Its Better People' and 'D'yer Wanna Be A Spaceman', 'The Masterplan' is superb.
The first five tracks of this album are the album's best highlight, with the mega anthem 'Acquiese' starting off the pack. 'Underneath The Sky' is an overlooked piece, with a wonderful melody and piano bridge. 'Talk Tonight' is what acoustic concert-goers long for in it's beauty, while 'Going Nowhere' feeds your dreams of escaping your dead end town. 'Fade Away' has a massive kick of electric guitars and riffs, accompanied by a sneering Liam vocal.
Unfortunetly, the one low point in this disc is the following two tracks. 'The Swamp Song' is decent, but doesn't belong with such gems as the tracks before. And despite many Oasis fans claiming otherwise, 'I Am The Walrus' is by far the worst song Oasis have ever recorded, much less their worst cover. The aural quality is horrible, and it's one of the few times that Liam's vocals leave something to be desired. Luckily for you, you have the power to skip to 'Listen Up'
Ah, 'Listen Up'. Lovely opening riff, even better melody. The epic of the album, filling you with the pride that only Oasis can. 'Rockin Chair' and 'Half The World Away' are two more acoustic sparks that show Noel's power as a massive guitarist/songwriter. '(It's Good) To Be Free' is decent track perfect to sing along with. 'Stay Young' is loud and fun while 'Headshrinker' knocks your head off with its power.

Quite simply, you are missing out on some of Oasis' best music if you dont have this CD. This CD contains many different styles of music, including an instrumental, punk rock, ballads, rock n roll, and a live cover. This variety is not found on any of Oasis' studio albumns.

The Rock songs "Acquiesce" and "Its good to be free" are two of the best rockers that Oasis have ever done. (Acquiesce is the only Masterplan song on Famillar to Millions, BTW)
However I feel that this cd is more strong on the ballad side of things. The songs "Underneath the Sky", "Talk Tonight", "Rockin chair", "Half the world away", and the epic "Masterplan", are some of the best songs ever to be writen by Noelly G. "Underneath the sky", and "The Masterplan" are in my top 10 Oasis songs, they are that good.
However this CD is let down by some Oasis punk songs which I didnt really like. I loved the punk style of Definetly Maybe, apart from "Bring it on Down", and to me "Stay Young", "Fade Away" and "Headshrinker" are poor, like "Bring it on Down".
"Listen up" is a good song but it blatenly rips off "Supersonic".
"The Swamp song" is the full length version of those two instrumentals on WTSMG? and it is live. "Going Nowhere" has an old style feel to it but it gets boring just like "I am the Walrus live".
However the good songs far outweigh the poor ones, therefore I definetly recommend that you buy it.

I have always been puzzled by the response people give as to why they don't rate Oasis and they say "Because all there songs sound the same". I reply "so you think 'talk tonight' and 'Headshrinker' sound the same?" they look confused and answer "i haven't heard them?".
I always assume that people buy the singles and albums if they are real fans but obviously not. Having had the privilege of hearing every song Oasis have ever released i can safely say that they are the best B-sides band since the Beatles.
There are some very good songs on this album but there are many more that people (particularly those in America) haven't heard. Songs like 'Better People' and 'Flashbax' are amazing but i bet not many of you have heard them. If not get the Oasis singles! Still... on to the album.
The highlights include 'Acquiescue' (which typifies the Oasis mid-90's swagger), the beautiful 'Talk Tonight'. It must be said that there is nearly always one Noel sung acoustic song on each single so if you like this then you would enjoy their singles for the B-sides.
'Going Nowhere' was a song Noel wrote when he was unemployed in Manchester in 1992 and lyrically expresses his hopes and dreams for the future and is one of the few Oasis songs to use a brass section.
'The Swamp Song' is the poorest song on the album and sounds like something Noel ans his mate Paul Weller did after a quite a few pints late into the night.
'Listen Up' is a great B-side and yet another that deserved to be on a proper studio album. The guitar rephrane works wonderfully against Liam's voice.
