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.

The second disk consists of B-sides and extra tracks. Disk two is phenomenal. As much as I love Morning Glory from start to finish, if you ever felt the album wasn't quite complete disk two will make it sound whole to you. It's a fantastic companion disk but could just as easily stand on it's own as an Oasis album.
Disk Three is unreleased demos and live recordings. Though this is a good set of demos and live recordings not much stuck out to me. At least not compared to disk two.
It's a fantastic set. It's not the most comprehensive deluxe edition, anniversary edition or box set that I have purchased but I think it's a must have for any Oasis fan. I highly recommend it.
The weakest track is the single "Roll With It" which sounds at best like a B-side. Also, "Champagne Supernova" is far too long. Clocking in at 7 mins 27 secs, I had time to go make tea and have some crumpet (hey, I work fast...what can I tell ya).
All bad puns aside, the overall feel of this album is less a sonic explosion and more a fun night out at the pub or on holiday. It doesn't make it less enticing, just different.
_(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.
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.

Nice little set. Worth the nice price I paid on here, but it wouldn't be worth its full retail had it been the listed price.Published 26 days ago by Stephen Amend
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 5 months ago by sean mcdonald
