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

_(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.
Liam Gallagher's soaring one in a million voice combined with the musical genius of big brother Noel Gallagher makes this album better than any album I have ever heard, or ever will hear, in my entire life.

Not sure why, but it is poor quality and plays like a tin drum. I had an original and it sounded great. Not impressed.Published 11 months ago by Gerry Goldring

After the 1st album (Definitely Maybe) it was going to be hard to match that epic. The lads do a good job of trying as so many tracks on this album do hit the mark. Read morePublished on Feb. 16 2009 by Brian Maitland
Definitely Maybe is not the best debut of all-time. Not a chance. The best debut album of all-time is Guns N' Roses Appetite for Destruction- but that's another story. Read morePublished on Oct. 22 2007 by Jason Hutton

It is hopeless to keep searching for a good song by Oasis. I have to announce that I'm tired of listening to the same bad-fake-beatlelike-sound. Read morePublished on June 3 2004 by Davidson
