HASH(0xa155baec) out of 5 stars Should Have Been on An Album Aug. 6 2004
By miles@riverside - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Whatever" is a terrific song, about as good as anything off the first 2 Oasis albums. The group might have been trying to repeat this sound later with the song "All Around The World", what with the violins and MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR-type psychedelia; but "Whatever" is a much catchier tune and doesn't run on and on forever like "All Around The World" does.

Unfortunately, this one 6-minute song is the only reason to buy the single. The other songs are all good, but "Slide Away" is taken right off the first album, and the other two songs can be found on THE MASTERPLAN compilation.

HASH(0xa13888e8) out of 5 stars HOW GOOD IS THIS TUNE!? Sept. 20 2004
By Nate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There have been stormy mornings when its all seemed too much. I ponder slitting my wrists, throwing myself off a high rise or some other misery-laden pursuit.

When those times have set, I knew there was only one answer - Whatever. As the subtle acoustic arouses interest and the opening symphonic strings caress the senses all of a sudden the world begins to change. The clouds endeavor to disperse, an invigorating shiver runs up the spine, hairs on the hind neck stand on end and the sun arises to "shee-yine!" - Hallelujah, praise the lord!

Put simply, the most uplifting anthem I've ever heard by the most under appreciated band ever to hit The States - just wonderful!

HASH(0xa1069984) out of 5 stars Brilliant!! Feb. 28 2005
By Mr H - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first time I heard this was live at glasgow which had Noel singing, then when i baught the single I was amazed and couldnt get it out of my head for days and days. Even though its 10 years old its still one of the best singles released in that period. The B-sides are as good as A-sides which can be found on the masterplan. Also has the non-album-single "slide-away" on the 4th track. You could as well say its a Double A-Side single.

I recommend this to anybody!

HASH(0xa1943b34) out of 5 stars The most celebrated single of the past 10 years! Dec 29 2004
By S. Sarhan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"I'm freeeeee...to be whatever I, whatever I choose and I'll sing the blues if I want!"

These were the opening lines of Oasis' December 1994 released top 10 hit single Whatever, a song that would set the tone for that year, and the year that followed, and was a teaser for what Oasis would sound like on their higly anticipated second album What's The Story Morning Glory, which would be released in the Fall of 1995.

The song is such a great tune, words cannot describe it.

With an obvious inspiration from The Beatles' post '67 recordings, especially All You Need Is love, apparent by the use of an orchestra (Those violins are out of this world), and lyrics so bold and straightforward that Noel himself can't top, and Liam's vocal reaching its peak, Whatever can easily be voted as the best song Oasis have written and performed throughout their entire career, only Live Forever goes head to head.

It's just a song to celebrate to, to play and sing along to at the top of your voice (make sure you're by yourself though!)

The B-sides: It's Good To Be Free, and Half The World Away, both featured on The Masterplan, are excellent songs also.

Now get a grip on yourself, It don't cost much!

HASH(0xa1943c54) out of 5 stars Probaly the best Oasis single ever released Oct. 30 2003
By Matthew Edmundson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's a shame Oasis singles aren't released more in the U.S. It's also a shame "Whatever" hasn't been heard by the average american. It's truly one of the best songs they've ever written and this single is one of the only ways to get it.
"Whatever" is a great song. It's such a powerful emotional acoutic ballad. Noel really shows his song writing abilities and he is truly one of the top songwriters penning songs today. He is very underrated and I just about garuntee you'll love him too if you hear "Whatever."
"(It's Good)To be Free" is a great song. You can find it on The Masterplan album. I think it is truly an underrated Oasis song. It's penned by Noel and has a very catchy chorus. I like this song a lot.
"Half the World Away" is another song off The Masterplan. It's a beautiful written song by Noel. It's another great acoustic song. I saw him play this one live and people where crying as he sang. It's a great song.
"Slide Away" is another great Oasis song. It's off there debut album Definetly Maybe and it's one of there classics. It's a great love song and the version of it on this is song by Liam and is the same one on Definetly Maybe. The acoustic version song by Noel on MTV Unplugged is the best version you will ever hear, but this one is a close second.
This is a great Single. All the songs are quality singles and I would reccomend this song to anybody. It's not just something for an Oasis fan. These are all deep emotional songs that anyone can enjoy. It's Definetly a must own for Oasis fans and you should check it out.
